The famed Half Moon Bay Golf Links consists of two courses, both with ocean vistas and craggy cliffs. The Old Course, designed by Arnold Palmer and Francis Duane, finishes on one of the highest-ranked holes in the world. The newer Ocean Course is designed for fast links-style play. The Presidio of San Francisco has a very different kind of history: it was built in 1895 on a military base and named a national historical landmark in 1962.
