Detailed description of Olympic Club, Ocean Course

Olympic Club, The -Ocean, is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in San Francisco, California.

The Olympic Club is a San Francisco, California-based athletic club with three golf courses located at San Francisco's border with Daly City, California. The club's main "City Clubhouse" is located in downtown San Francisco. The club's "Lakeside Clubhouse" is located just north of the city's border with Daly City. The two clubhouses are separated by about 10 miles.

The three courses at the Olympic Club are the Cliffs, Lake and Ocean courses. The Lake and Ocean are eighteen hole par 71 courses, and the Cliffs is a nine-hole par-3 course that is on the bluffs of the Pacific Ocean. All three courses are lined with many trees (almost 40,000 on the Lake course) and offer views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Golden Gate Park. The United States Golf Association recognizes the Olympic Club as one of the first 100 golf clubs established in the United States.

The Ocean Course has seen many changes over its history.

The course first opened for play in 1924. It was designed by Willie Watson. Soon damaged by landslides, the course was remodeled and rebuilt in 1927 by Sam Whiting. The Ocean course was altered several times over the years. and following heavy storm damage in 1996 was completely redesigned by Tom Weiskopf and reopened in 2000.

The regular yardage for the Ocean Course is 6,925 yards from the championship tees with a course rating of 73.5 and a slope rating of 133. From the next set of tees forward, the course measures 6,496 yards and has a course rating of 71.1 and a slope rating of 129. From the next set of tees forward, the course measures 5,898 yards with a course rating of 68.8 and a slope rating of 121. From the front tees, the course measures 5,386 yards with a course rating of 66.5 and a slope rating of 115.

In preparation for the 2007 U.S. Amateur, the 14th hole was changed, to allow the 15th hole to be lengthened. The course is almost entirely within the borders of Daly City.

If you have a chance to get invited to play the Oympic Club, do it. We played the Ocean course because the Lake course was under renovation. the layout and conditions were fantastic. Most of the holes are very challenging, but fair. The club house is old school and needs some updating, but there is so much history on the wallsin pictures and memorabilia that it more than makes up for the condtion of the place. Don't miss a chance to play there!
