599 Skyline Blvd
San Francisco, CA 94015-4611, United States

This location features the famous Lakeside Course that has hosted several USGA championships, including the 2012 men's U.S. Open Championship (Webb Simpson). Since the 1998 U.S. Open was played here, the club has rebuilt all of the greens to USGA specs with bent grass; previously the greens were seeded with poa annua. Two holes have been reconfigured, while a few hundred trees have been removed due to disease. The club now considers #8 to be their "signature hole."

The club's other location is the "City Clubhouse," located downtown:
524 Post St
San Francisco CA 94102-1295

The club actually formed in 1860 and purchased the land that now contains the Lake and Ocean courses in 1918.

Amazing to play such an iconic course. Lots of slope and elevation changes and the course is challenging in hole layout. Doglegs in both directions with moderate tree cover if you go off the fairway. Stay out of the bunkers, especially on 18!

Wonderful condition. I have played it before and I can honestly say it is always the same. Play it if you can and you will not be disappointed.

They need to add pin point for the SGXW.

With all the US Open history on the tough cypress pine lined Lake Course, you might be a bit nervous for a few holes. The blue tees are a good challenge of golf, but on each hole, look back and take a look at the tee boxes for the tips (no tee markers are put out) and be glad you are not playing from there. Maybe if you are better than scratch, let's say a +2 handicap or better, the tips wont be pure torture. Regardless of what tees you are playing from, if you can move the ball both ways off the tee, then you'll have a much better chance at hitting greens in regulation. I say starting from hole 5 onwards, it's about as good as it gets. Oh, and the burger dog at the turn is just about world famous.
