Why We Like This Place

Since 1776, the Presidio has guarded the Golden Gate, first for Spain, then Mexico, and finally for the United States. Then, as now, the Presidio was one big beautiful piece of California coastland. Today, its 1,500 acres of eucalyptus, cypress, pine forest, coastal wild flowers, and ocean and bay views are a national park site, and the 7,000-square-foot Clubhouse is a fine place to host a wide spectrum of events.

The Clubhouse has a casually refined look that makes you want to step inside. The interior, a blend of Mission-style architecture and Maybeck-inspired, landscape-friendly details, features cathedral ceilings, exposed fir beams, cherrywood trim and paneling, and a large limestone fireplace. Five French doors extend its largest dining area onto the Tented Terrace, which is perfect for any style of function from barbecue to black-tie. From here you also have an excellent view of the final green of the Presidio's historic 18-hole golf course. President Theodore Roosevelt reviewed the command on the Presidio Golf Links in 1903, and many a golfer of note—including TR himself, Dwight Eisenhower, Bing Crosby and Arnold Palmer—has played through on its fairways.

Of course, the close proximity of Bentgrass greens and well-maintained parklands is a powerful lure. Party plans could easily include a bit of golf practice or a short nature hike. But more likely, guests will simply want to sit back and enjoy the fresh air and the vista—lush green lawns, pine and eucalyptus groves, and the lovely neighborhood homes, all looking very low-rise from this vantage point on a gentle crest.

The Palmer Room (named for Arnold Palmer, of course!), provides cozier quarters just right for smaller meetings, breakfasts, luncheons or dinners, and the Palmer Terrace and lawn—with its garden setting and pine-curtained bay views—allows celebrants to take the dining and good times outdoors.
