"Tough topography," "slick greens," "links-style layout," "where a 5-handicap plays to 10 or higher." For aficionados of Gleneagles Golf Club, another descriptive phrase has long applied: ""Best Public Golf Course in San Francisco,"" according to SF Weekly. This hidden treasure, tucked into a hillside of 318-acre McLaren Park in The City's southeast side, is so difficult it engendered this tale from San Francisco Chronicle columnist C.W. Nevius: ""When Lee Trevino played Gleneagles (in an effort to break the course record at 69), he shot a 71 the first round, and then, after he got to know the course a little, he fired a 73."" Insiders have always exulted in the bay views, Monterey cypress-lined fairways, and fast greens of this Jack Fleming-designed 9-hole layout that most players happily convert to 18 with multiple angled tee boxes. Two other draws: ravingly modest prices ($16-$19.50 for 9 holes, $24-$31.50 for 18) and a tradition of providing the most engaging 19th hole in the golf kingdom." Learn more
