Travel & Golf Recommendations

San Francisco, CA: Presidio Golf Course

Presidio Opens 2003 Season with Great Course Conditions: 108-year-old course boasts best playing conditions in long history.

Touting lush fairways, mature bentgrass greens, and well-defined rough, the Presidio Golf Course opened the 2003 Golf Season with some of the best spring course conditions in years.

“The course has never been in better shape this early in the season” said Josh Heersink, Superintendent for the Presidio. “We are beginning to see the benefits of our long term improvement projects like our resurfaced greens, and fairway aerification project and overseeding program. These projects combined with good winter weather have brought about major changes in course appearance and playability.”

Hand in hand with long-term improvement projects is an industry level commitment to environmentally sound maintenance practices shared by Superintendent Heersink, Arnold Palmer Golf Management and the Presidio Trust. The Presidio Golf Course has introduced an Integrated Pest Management Plan based on an ecosystem strategy that focuses on the long term prevention of pests through a combination of techniques such as the use of a pest’s natural enemy, habitat manipulation, modified maintenance practices and the use of low-risk chemical controls when other controls are ineffective.

The driving range

The driving range is located just aside of the first hole. Plenty of boxes makes it easy to find a free spot. You play downhill, which makes it sometimes difficult to adjust your swing.

Hole #1

Hole 1 you start downhill, same as the driving range, which you see on the right. If you slice to the right, you might get into trouble identifying your ball among all the driving range balls, which went over the fence. Target to the left for your attack to the green with the second shot.

Hole #9

If you play it straight, No. 9 is easy. But be aware of the bushes on the right and the woods on the left. Once you placed your first shot well, the second and third will be no issue.

The green of hole 9 is fairly big, some bunkers protecting front left and right.

Hole #18

The 18 is a par 5. Right and left trees will watch your accurate shots. Keep an eye on accuracy although the fairway will tempt for some ambitious long shots. And we all know, ambition on a golf course only deserves the pros.

The Presidio Golf Course is open for daily, year round, public play. Tee times for the 18 hole, par 72 course are available up to 30 days in advance (415/561-4653 or www.presidiogolf.com). Individuals are welcome to contact the golf shop directly for same day availability (415/561-4661 x4). Additional course information is available on our website www.presidiogolf.com.
