Olympic Club is a much-storied course, just a few miles down the road from San Francisco Golf Club, Olympic was founded in 1893 as an athletic club in the city of San Francisco. In 1924, the club acquired land bordered by the Pacific Ocean and Lake Merced to build 36 holes of the Lake and Ocean courses. The Lake has hosted four U.S.Opens [now five] and the Tour Championship in 1993. Because there are no water hazards and only one fairway bunker, some call the 6,808-yard par 71 Lake course one of the world’s longest short courses. Larry Berle.
