Lincoln Park is a shame. It's an historic golf course designed by Tom Bendelow in the 1920's on a cramped piece of land high on a headland above the Golden Gate Bridge where the Pacific Ocean flows into San Francisco Bay. It's a par 68 course, 5,149 yards long, 66 course rating, and 109 slope. It has great views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge if it's not in the fog, which would be unusual. I say it's a shame because when I went to the course for the first time in town, driving to the location up on the point and arriving at the layout with huge cypress and pine tree lined hilly fairways overlooking the Bridge, I thought it would be a real treat. The clubhouse is like something out of the 1940's, and the service more or less the same. You can't possibly think this course is run by anyone other than the government. Out on the course, it's definitely quirky, tight tree lined fairways, odd holes, small and crowned greens, iffy conditions, but despite all of that, it's a real treat to play here, with glimpses of the Bay, the Pacific, and the Golden Gate throughout. Just don't get your hopes up, and you're really enjoy the experience. By the way, the weather in downtown San Francisco or any of the surrounding areas, in no way resembles the weather here, it can be 20 degrees cooler, windy, and misty with the fog.
