The heart of the California Golf Club of San Francisco is undoubtedly its golf course. Renovated by the acclaimed golf architect Kyle Phillips in 2007, the course is designed to challenge even the most skilled players. Phillips carefully preserved the best aspects of the original layout while enhancing its strategic options and visual appeal, ensuring that every hole offers a unique challenge and a beautiful vista.

The course features bentgrass greens and bluegrass fairways, meticulously groomed to provide optimal playing conditions year-round. Each hole is crafted to offer strategic diversity; from the risk-reward par-5s to the precision-required par-3s, golfers must navigate undulating terrains, strategically placed bunkers, and occasional winds that sweep through the valley.

Signature holes, like the par-4 7th, offer a perfect blend of difficulty and beauty, demanding a well-placed tee shot to avoid sand traps and roughs, followed by a precise approach to a well-guarded green. This hole, along with others, has been the stage for numerous memorable shots and tournaments, drawing praise from amateur and professional golfers alike.

Cal Club also boasts a rich competitive history, having hosted several prestigious tournaments which not only challenge the world’s best golfers but also showcase the club’s commitment to excellence in the sport of golf. Whether you’re seeking a test of your golfing skills or a retreat into the sport’s storied past, the California Golf Club of San Francisco delivers an unmatched golfing experience.
