Established in 1896, the Presidio Golf Course was the much-coveted private sanctuary of the U.S. Army until 1995, when the Army base became part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and the golf course became semi-private. A multi-million dollar upgrade by Arnold Palmer Golf Management Company added bentgrass greens, a glitzy new clubhouse and the Presidio Cafe on the 18th green, where golfers enjoy live jazz and California cuisine on the heated terrace.
On a peninsula of woodlands and buffs above the Golden Gate, the 6,500-yard track winds among stands of towering cypress, eucalyptus and pines. Peregrine falcons and eagles circle above, and wild rhododendrons explode into clouds of red and white blooms from January through April. Sidehill, uphill and downhill lies are the order of the day, plus erratic winds off San Francisco Bay.
