|The Presidio Golf Course dates back more than 100 years and Robert Johnstone designed it, returning with William McEwan a few years later to remodel it. Set close to downtown San Francisco, it’s a popular facility that winds over hilly ground between stately pines and eucalyptus.|
Pair this course with Harding Park and San Francisco has two great old historic public offerings that in my opinion both fly under the radar. Presidio even more so than Harding Park. I feel like nobody ever mentions this course and its just kind of considered the old muni in San Fran (which it is), but it's still a must play. From the hilly terrain to the old clubhouse to the above average condition of the course, Presidio offers a great deal that is ignored by many. As a midwest guy, the holes lined with the Eucalyptus trees offered a unique feel and beautiful framing. I'd advise anyone going to the bay area to make a stop by Presido. It's a fantastic old golf course.
