Could be a real gem

I don’t know why, but this course is a bit of a dog track. The fairways are meh and the greens are not good. The place is just terribly maintained! Cleary with some professional effort it could be a nice city course, just look at the nearby public access courses. The city should get the Harding team over there for a few months. It’s got great views so it’s a bit sad the course isn’t the same.

Challenging course; yet very playable

I play this course about once a month; i do enjoy it. It's challenging because of all the elevation changes and large trees along the course. I admit losing a golf ball here and there. But the views on the City and Golden Gate Bridge make up for it.
The condition of the greens and course have improved the past year, you have to adjust your play for the changing conditions and you are fine. Since rarely or never a cart is available be prepared to walk and/or carry your golf bag. in that case it's a great excercise. Play early in the morning and the play is very quick. Play the afternoon and it will take four hours +.

Charged for Push Cart

Traditionally these guys haven't charged for a push-cart, but now they want $20 to use a push cart?

Muni bargain

It's well played, a bit ragged but a tough course on a windy day. Fun, scenic, interesting -- great walking course.

Always Fun

Lincoln is a hidden gem. Don’t be fooled by its short length.- Lincoln requires precise shots and placement.

The course conditions are decent considering this is a mini that sees a lot of play. Pace of play can be hit or miss, but if you are lucky, you hit one of those days where the heavy fog lifts by the time you get to the back nine and you get an awesome view of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Lincoln park

Gem in the city. Course is in better condition than last few years. Wanted to check in 20 min prior to 8:10 tee time and no one was at the front desk. Yelled out twice before guy came out asking why I was hollering. Um, because I want to check in?! Then he started giving me crap. Didn’t get into it with him, should have asked if he was working or what. Customer service is definitely not his forte.
On the 6th hole, it’s a blind crest over a hill so one can’t see over it. We tee’d off and then find the grounds keeper on the side of the fairway laying down next to his lil cart drinking a beer just over the crest. Wtfh lol. I guess he was getting ready for friday night.
It’s a public course so one may not expect exceptional service or conditions like at any higher end courses, but come on!

We were scammed.

I am 78 yrs old, so are my companions. We were not provided with carts so we could play Lincoln Park which is hilly.
When I asked for a refund, it was declined. Our reason for not playing was not acceptable to GolfNow. The walking rate does not mean that we have to walk to play,
that was just to differentiate rate with carts.
Also, we were charged convenience fee which was not disclose in the hot deals. For this, it would seem that we were scammed by GolfNOw.

BEWARE!

Tea boxes are nonexistent. Not enough golf carts. The greens aren’t cut. No ranger to enforce pace of play. If you’re a tourist, just pay more and play at TPC Harding Park.
