Destination Guide

Destination: San Francisco

San Francisco is a favorite destination for travelers all over the world, thanks to a strong mix of cultures, unique attractions and mild weather year round. It's easy to stay busy on a San Francisco vacation, from riding cable cars throughout the city to exploring one of the many unique neighborhoods, each with its own appeal.

North Beach and Chinatown are especially ideal neighborhoods for diverse restaurants, nightlife and shopping options. Along the waterfront, Fisherman's Wharf boasts a lively street scene full of fisheries and street entertainers. Out on the bay's waters, boat tours of infamous Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge are favorite tourist sights.

The city is as rich in culture and diversity as you'll find in America, but golf history is illustrious as well.

Though overshadowed by the oceanside golf courses on the Monterey Peninsula to the south, San Francisco boasts its own prestigious additions to the golf world dating back to the early 1900s. All within view of each other just off the ocean are regular U.S. Open host Olympic Club, San Francisco Golf Club and revived municipal course and President's Cup host Harding Park Golf Course.

Head outside the city and your public and resort options improve, and so does the weather usually. Summer months can be chilly in the bay area, while the fall is historically the warmest season, with highs that generally stay in the 70s. Bring a windbreaker though, and golf is possible year round in the bay area, especially if you're willing to head outside of San Francisco's microclimate away from the fog and towards sunnier spots.
