The IJGT is excited to host its first MAJOR of the spring season, the MAJOR Championship at Presidio Golf Club in San Francisco, Calif. The two-day, 36-hole tournament will be held on February 7-8, 2015, and be the first west coast event of the year.
The Presidio Golf Course is one of the oldest courses on the west coast and has been a national historic landmark since 1962. Located within a national park, the Presidio course has been recognized as a leader in environmentally sensitive golf course management. In 2003 the course received certification from Audubon International as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.
The terrains at Presidio are varied and range from adobe clay to rock to sand. Sitting in the notoriously hilly San Francisco area, the course plays with difficult but entertaining changes in landscape from hole to hole.
Many famous athletes including Babe Ruth, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Joe DiMaggio have played at the Presidio Golf Course.
San Francisco is a great city for foodies and the Presidio specifically is becoming a dining destination with a variety of exciting restaurants popping up in the area.
