Golden Gate Park Golf Course San Francisco
Golden Gate Golf Course was built in the year 1951 and designed by Jack Flemings and is part of San Francisco Parks & Recreation.
It’s also a First Tee facility that aims to nurture young talent.
The course is charming with Cypress trees lining the fairway and is serene too. You’d be hardpressed to believe that this green idyllic setting is right in the midst of the city. The course is well maintained and is a quick getaway for the city-weary citizens.
The ground is also close to the ocean and you can catch a glimpse of the gleaming waters through the trees on some holes.
The course is small but has some elevation changes and undulations to it on some holes. Otherwise, it’s flat. The fairways are narrow and there could be trees that may play spoilsport if you don’t place the shots properly.
Every hole is a par-3 and the longest is only 194 yards and even a toddler can have fun on this course. A great place to work on the short game for experienced players.
As you’d have guessed, you may not require the services of your driver. In fact, this would be a good place to swing your irons.
This is a course for beginners, seniors, and people who are short on time and want a quick round of golf.
You’d be able to finish it in 1.5 hours unless it gets crowded. Remember, you are right in the middle of San Fransisco.
A cute little course for you and your friends to hit some balls, drink some beers, enjoy the scenery, chill out and be merry.
