Detailed description of Lake Merced Golf Club

Lake Merced Golf Club is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Daly City , California.

Lake Merced Golf Club first opened for play in June 1923. the course was designed by Willie Lock, a transplanted Scot, was the architect. His fee for design work was $750.

In the late 1920's the course was redesigned by the legendary Dr. Alister MacKenzie. His signature "cloud shaped" bunkering style dotted the course as did many intricate strategic choices for every level of player. 

When Interstate 280 came through in the mid 1960's the course changed once again. This time it was redesigned by Robert Muir Graves and for thirty more years Lake Merced was home to annual competition of high caliber.

In 1996, the course was renovated yet again, this time by the "U.S. Open Doctor," Rees Jones. The result is a rejuvenated layout with classic features, including deep bunkering and undulating greens.

The Lake Merced Golf Club golf course plays to a maximum distance of 6,863 yards. The course rating is 74.1 and the slope rating is 136. The Lake Merced Golf Club golf course plays to a par of 72.

never tire of the layout and the condition is always excellent - uncrowded - typical SF weather - sometimes foggy - sometimes windy- plays like San Francisco Golf Club but the fairways are not as wide - an excllent test of golf.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
