Even a familiar vacation destination such as San Francisco contains hidden gems. If SF is one of your bases for a CORK & TEE golf vacation adventure, we have some great golf to recommend. Just 45 minutes down the coast, adjacent to a Ritz Carlton, lies the Half Moon Bay Golf Club, a 36-hole CORK & TEE Hidden Gem at the ocean’s edge. Try your best not to be distracted by the cliffs looming to the right of the fairway as you prepare to tee off on the home hole of Arnold Palmer’s Old Course. If the layout of Arthur Hills’s Ocean Course is more to your liking, do your best to manage the howling winds that can wreak havoc on this nearly treeless track.

Other excellent golf is found one hour east and a world away from San Francisco in the peaceful Livermore Valley. Here you can play Poppy Ridge and the Course at Wente Vineyards, a CORK & TEE Hidden Gem. If time permits, you should experience both; otherwise, Wente is a must-play. This Greg Norman masterpiece combines excellent routing, challenging elevation changes and some of the finest greens on the west coast to produce one of the most well-balanced courses we have played in recent years. You might need some help from the Shark himself as you attempt to negotiate the back-breaking final three holes. The scenery is spectacular and quintessential California—grassy hills dotted with lone oak trees. Do not miss this incredibly challenging and peaceful setting!

Back in the city, we will expose you to the latest dining hot spots as well as treat you to old favorites. You may also elect to try your hand at winemaking at Crushpad, delight your senses by going behind the scenes at The Ferry Building and its Saturday market, or even let us arrange a private Epicurean Walking Tour. If you do not have preferred accommodations in the city, we will ensure that you are aware of the ever-widening range of available options.
