It has no rating but gets flames on some of the reviews... Is it really not worth it? Is it basically the equivalent of Torrey Pines for out of towners? I am going to SF for 3 days and am planning to get a round in but everywhere looks like it is a bummer. HALP

Harding Park is flat with really thick rough. It can play a bit long, but I don't think it's anything spectacular unless your playing from the tips and it's in tournament condition. Greens have some tiers and undulations. They get full rack for hosting some tour events and the PGA Championship in a few years.

Presidio is still pretty wet. The just hosted the SF City the past few weeks as did Harding. We're getting pounded with rain again this week so it will be sloppy for while.

Are you staying in "The City" or the Bay Area? I can point you in the right direction depending on where you are staying.

Staying in union square... I saw presidio and was my first choice... However through the marvel of such a greet site like Greenskeeper.org I was able to discern that Presidio punched greens yesterday and will finish today.

Isn't GK flippin awesome?

Any suggestions around Larkspur area?

I think Peacock Gap will be your best bet, unless you can take a short ride up 101 North to Foxtail.

You are correct on a couple fronts. I just moved to sf from SD and the voice the similarites to torrey often. The routing, the flatness, the type of grass and indeed the cost:enjoyment ratio. As a resident, both course present great value for money. But Harding, just like Torrey, is rather underwhelming at the rack rate. Granted, the torrey rack rate is even higher, but @$150, I'd be dissapointed playing Harding just as well. When are you playing, because it looks like just as presidio punched last monday, harding is punching next monday. There's good golf in every direction you go. And if you have the time just go to Monterey or pasatiempo. Even closer and feasible for a trip from the city (~45 min) are the half moon bay courses which are fantastic, though on the pricey side as well. Wente or poppy in the east bay, and indian valley or peacock gap north of the city. South bay has cinnabar which is fun. All are drivable from the city. I've never played Yocha Dehe, which is closer to 1.5-2 hours away, but I've heard its one of the best courses in the area. Hope this helps. Good luck.

SoCalBonzi:

You gotta make it up to Yocha Dehe. There will be a GK outing in July, and I'm looking forward to meeting the Northern California contingent then, if not sooner.

I would add Coyote Creek in the South Bay along with Callippe in Livermore/Pleasanton area to your list. Great tracks and reasonable prices.
