Golf course weddings and receptions at Presidio Golf Course

San Francisco Weddings at Presidio Golf Course & Clubhouse

Built in the heart of the Presidio of San Francisco, a national park, and conveniently located just 10 minutes from downtown San Francisco, the Presidio Clubhouse offers breathtaking surroundings and dramatic sunsets. Outfitted with exposed beam ceilings, rich cherry wood paneling, a large stone fireplace and french doors, the clubhouse and attached terrace offers sweeping views of the golf course. Our guests enjoy the ambiance of a country lodge enhanced by our rich history, and the time honored traditions of a grand golf course built over a century ago, making the Presidio Clubhouse a unique setting for your wedding. Our Clubhouse can accommodate 80 guests, with a dance floor. To accommodate additional guests (up to 200 total), we have tented our outdoor terrace, essentially extending the capacity of our Clubhouse and creating one large event space. Our beautiful event tent encompasses our entire outdoor terrace (45’ x 55’). It has a separate French door entrance, along with a white & clear canopy top, a skylight and clear walls, allowing you to keep the fantastic views of the golf course, trees and city. Your guests will find the tent and Clubhouse equally comfortable and inviting. The tent is equipped with heaters and lighting system with dimmers, allowing for an intimate dinner or festive dancing area! All the food and beverage items are provided exclusively by our in-house Chef and Catering team. We do not allow outside catering with the exception of cakes and wine (fees apply). For those that are also interested in a ceremony location before their reception, we can offer three locations at the golf course; our tented terrace (200), the South Lawn (up to 200) and our front lawn (up to 130 people).

Wedding Reviews

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Presidio Golf Course Cafe in October 2016. It was fantastic! While we did have to make our reservation early (over a year in advance) it was well worth it! Tracey and her team are great to work with and are very responsive at every step of the way. The food and bar service was amazing. There are many different food and bar options which can accommodate your needs. Our guests loved the food and drinks! We whole heartily recommend the venue for any couple looking for an absolutely lovely outdoor ceremony and indoor reception space with top-notch service and staff. Tracey is the best to work with and her extensive experience truly shines through.Ryan D.

Tracey and her team went above and beyond to make our wedding the best party ever. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Tracey as your wedding coordinator. I didn't have to worry about a single thing. She took care of every detail for us. Because of her, our day was easy and care free. In addition, not one guest had a single complaint about the food! It was delicious, and we've all been to weddings where a greyish meat object is served. Her team treated us like royalty. Nothing but love for Tracey and the staff at the Presidio Golf Club.Juliet S.

My husband and I had our wedding at the clubhouse in January 2016 and we had the time of our lives! We wanted to get married in SF since that is where we met and live, but also wanted greenery and space versus cement/buildings. The Clubhouse was a perfect fit! The venue is gorgeous and well maintained-and you get a great view from the tent and feel as if you are outside. We also wanted to make sure it was a venue easy for our guests to get to/park-there is a large parking lot free of charge that easily accommodated all of our guests (approx. 160). The staff, Tracey in particular(!), were absolutely amazing and accommodating. Tracey was super responsive during the planning process and incredibly accommodating. Since we had a winter wedding (sun sets early), I was concerned about not having enough light for pictures after the ceremony, Tracey graciously offered to let us start the ceremony earlier, it was perfect. We also had to have a backup plan for rain. It poured the day before the wedding, but Tracey had a backup plan in place, watched the weather all Saturday morning and kept me in the loop for her plans. The weather was perfect and held out and we were able to do the ceremony outside-lawn was perfect despite the pouring rain the night before. Last shout out to the staff, during the reception two of my friends had to run home to take care of their baby and were going to come back for dancing and skip out on dinner. I asked the staff if they could make plates for them for when they returned. As soon as my friends walked back in the door the staff had dinner waiting for them. Being brand new/exhausted parents-it meant a lot to them and they partied all night! Food was amazing, everyone raved about it (short ribs, salmon, winter roasted veggie pasta); we did an open bar and drinks were delicious. One thing I loved is since the clubhouse is a restaurant, the bar is an actual bar not a table with black tablecloth over it, our guests gathered around the bar and seemed to help with the social aspect-dance floor was right next to the bar…although people drank a lot, which is what we wanted, but might be something to keep in mind if that isn’t your thing. I can’t say enough great things about the clubhouse-as you can tell from my looong review. You can’t go wrong!Amanda J.

We wanted to extend our warmest gratitude to Tracey for everything she did for us on our special day. Our Saturday evening reception at the Presidio was perfect and we couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate with our friends and family. The event was so gorgeous and amazing; it was perfect. Everything, big and small, Tracey was there to help us and bring it all together. From our last minute candy/cupcake table, the table arrangements, to the food, everyone raved about how great the event was and how everything was put together so eloquently. I know my wife was worried about things running smoothly and everyone having a great time, this reception dramatically exceeded all of our expectations. We absolutely LOVED Tracey. She was awesome to work with, very easy going and nice, and it definitely made us at ease about booking this venue from Texas and really only seeing the location once with the rest of correspondence by email. We couldn't have asked for a better way to start our new journey together. As cliché as it is, if we did it all over again, we would pick the Presidio 10 times out of 10. Best. Day. Ever.Thaddeus C.

If you are looking for a great venue in a beautiful setting at a great value look no further! We held our wedding reception here in April and we could not have been happier with our choice. Our experience started with meeting the director of sales Ms. Tracey Lyons, she is a pleasure to work with. Tracey is a great communicator, she accommodated every request, had helpful suggestions, and worked hard to keep us on budget. Let me tell you about THE FOOD! Our guests are still talking about it. The chef, Caleb greeted us at our tasting, went over each selection, and was able to accommodate several dietary requirements for our guests. We served a filet mignon and salmon they were both delicious and the vegetarian risotto was so good my husband chose that as his meal even though he is a total carnivore! Erin was our event manager that night and she took excellent care of us all night. The service was first class, everyone was gracious and the evening went on without a single flaw. I could not recommend this place more for your event. It might be a while, but we will be back to celebrate our anniversaries Jose F.
