The Golden Gate Bridge and the Golden Gate Park. The infamous prison of Alcatraz. The steep streets and the trams. The gardens, the buildings and the shops. If this is the first time you visit San Francisco, everything will look familiar.
Scenery of so many cinematographic productions and object of so much iconography, it has everything to make you feel at home, in a city that is big but never ceases to be welcoming.
It is now possible to book tickets to San Francisco, one of the new TAP destinations, which has 5 weekly connections.
Golfing in 'The City by the Bay'
Beyond its world famous landmarks and a feeling of being strangely acquainted with your surroundings, when you visit 'San Fran' for the first time you will find plenty of opportunities to sneak in a little golf.
Just a short jaunt down the coast sits the world-famous facilities of Pebble Beach Golf Links (2019 U.S. Open venue) and the equally dramatic Cypress Point Golf Club - but you don't need to leave the city to play at great golf courses.
TPC Harding Park
Next year, TPC Harding Park will become only the fifth municipal golf course to host a major championship when it welcomes the world's best golfers for the 2020 PGA Championship.
At the facility you will find 27 holes of championship golf - the 18-hole Harding Park Course and the 9-hole Fleming Course. No matter how much time you may have to play golf when you're in San Francisco, this is an absolute must on any golfer's itinerary.
Half Moon Bay Golf Links
If you manage to take a trip outside the city, just a 20 min car ride south you will find a truly unforgettable golfing experience. Half Moon Bay Golf Links sits high on a bluff above the roaring Pacific Ocean and boasts spectacular sea views on every hole.
Quality is guaranteed with the Ocean Course having been designed by Arthur Hills, while the Old Course was sculpted by 'The King' Arnold Palmer alongside Francis Duane.
Presido Golf Course
The prestigious Presidio Golf Course opened for public play in 1995 and has quickly gained a reputation as one of the nation's top public courses. Located just minutes from downtown San Francisco, this 18-hole course plays 6,500 yards of challenging golf winding through beautiful Eucalyptus and Monterey Pine trees in The City's trademark hills.
