is the oldest golf course west of the Mississippi. In its long history it has hosted Bob Hope and Arnold Palmer and welcomed presidents and other world leaders. Today it's one of the top public golf courses in the nation and is known as a leader in environmentally sustainable golf course management. More than 65,000 rounds are played there each year.

Then: President Roosevelt riding the line to review the troops at Presidio Golf Course in 1903. From time to time, the Army repurposed golf course land to meet military needs.

Now: In March, this San Francisco classic is hosting another San Francisco classic - the 100th anniversary of the 2016 San Francisco City Golf Championship (photo credit: Steve Lewis). The "City" (as it's known) is the oldest and longest running amateur event in the United States.
