Presidio Golf Course Tournament 2011

Not too far from the ritzy neighborhoods of Cow Hollow and the Marina nestled inside the former Army Post turned Park, the Presidio Golf Course is a beautiful gem with great views.

It seems somewhat short looking at the scorecard, but large elevation changes, wind, shady and wet areas; and it’s proximity to the fog belt more than make up for it.  The course is well maintained with plenty of beautiful trees. This was my first time playing and I realized I’ve been missing out.

We had a stroke play tournament August 27th and as predicted during our Poppy Hills event James Poulson broke through. He leaked a little oil down the stretch during the back nine but posted a tidy net 68 to finish first in his flight.  A few skins added to his winnings made for a very profitable day.

Lyle Lowder lives not too far from the Presidio and plays there fairly often, so his low gross 77 and a scorching net 64 to take his net flight shouldn’t be too shocking However, some serious love from the course were major contributors. Three drives in to the trees on the left and one slice to the right on the back nine all ended up returning to reasonable spots for recovery.

Had always heard the complaints about the conditions there, primarily the wet and foggy conditions, but this is a course I will be playing more in the future and hopefully in a tournament.
