Golf Hotels in San Francisco

The City by the Bay is famed for the Golden Gate Bridge, Silicon Valley’s tech billionaires, and the finest seafood the Pacific Ocean has to offer. What few visitors realize, however, is that San Francisco also has some of the best golf clubs in the USA, and that spending a day on the green beneath the warm Californian sun will be one of the highlights of any visit to the West Coast. There are a huge number of private and municipal courses to choose from, so here’s a run down of the best golf hotels in town.

Easy access to the Half Moon Bay Golf Links
If your budget won’t quite stretch to the Ritz Carlton but you still want to play at the Half Moon Bay Golf Links, check in instead at the Oceano Hotel and Spa. This affordable, four-star hotel on the water is only a few minutes drive from the golf course, and also has easy access to the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve and Montara State Beach. When you come off the green, you can enjoy a massage in the full-service spa, swim in the pool, and treat yourself to superb, fresh seafood in the Oceano Bar & Grill.

The Buena Vista Motor Inn is a budget hotel in San Francisco, one block back from the coast on Lombard Street, and a short walk from Fisherman’s Wharf.

The hotel offers special packages for guests to play at the historic Presidio Course, which include a complimentary breakfast before your game, green fees, golf cart hire, and parking.

Budget hotel overlooking the Presidio Course
Just half a block from the Presidio National Recreation Area, and so superbly located for the Presidio Course, the Travelodge is a conveniently located 27-room hotel with complimentary Wi-Fi and breakfast. The hotel concierge can book you tee-time at the Presidio, the cost of which begins at $49, and discounts are available for California residents. One-on-one golf classes are available for players of all levels, including complete beginners, and you’ll have a great day out if your visit coincides with a tournament. Other attractions in the local area include the Presidio Theater and the Palace of Fine Arts.
