    The Olympic Club is consistently ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. and the World by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.

    Interestingly, the Lake Course has no water hazards, but is bordered by Lake Merced. Numerous large trees surround nearly all the fairways here, making accuracy off the tee paramount. And while the fogs and mists off the bay keep the course moist, the greens are always kept fast.

    The Olympic Club in San Francisco has hosted the U.S. Open in 1955, 1966, 1987, and 1998. The course is also the site of the 2007 U.S. Amateur Championship and the 2012 U.S. Open.
