Playing golf is a great way to enjoy the great outdoors, especially on the exceptional golf courses in Marin County, where friends, fresh air and sunshine team up perfectly on the greens. Tee up year-round thanks to Marin’s great weather and clean air.
Just a 25-minute drive from the heart of San Francisco, Peacock Gap Golf Club in San Rafael has something for everyone, from experienced golfers to novices. In addition to an all-grass driving range and classes from seasoned pros, this updated, friendly, full-service venue in the southern corner of Marin County has been hosting tournaments for more than 50 years. It has also served as a favorite golfing spot for legendary celebrities, such as Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Bob Hope and Kirk Douglas.
The Clubhouse at Peacock Gap Golf Club is a great place to hold corporate and social events, as well as weddings. For more casual dining and events, the Range Cafe Bar and Grill offers meals throughout the day, with weekday happy hours from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
San Rafael’s McInnis Park Golf Course is a family-friendly spot that includes batting cages and miniature golf, in addition to its two tier driving range, teaching facilities and relaxing nine-hole course. What further sets this course apart is the surrounding Marin Park Wildlife area with views of Mount Tamalpais and San Francisco Bay.
Open seven days a week, the McInnis Park Club Restaurant offers great food in a casually elegant setting.
No matter which golfing experience you choose, tee time in Marin County offers distinct opportunities you'll find nowhere else.
