Gleneagles Golf Course
Gleneagles Golf Course, located in San Francisco’s McLaren Park, opened in February of 1962. The nine-hole course is known best for its towering cypress trees, precarious greens, and ferocious winds. 55 years later, Gleneagles Disc Golf Course made its debut, making use of the same cypress trees, uneven surfaces, and dastardly winds. Host to multiple tournaments in its short history, Gleneagles is ready to show off both its beauty and treachery to the disc golf world in San Francisco’s first ever Disc Golf Pro Tour event, the San Francisco Open.

Parking and Transportation
Although there will be an onsite parking lot, it is expected it to be near capacity with competitor’s vehicles. While there is plenty of free all-day parking near the course on Sunnydale Avenue and in the nearby Excelsior district, we cannot guarantee the security of your vehicle or your possessions. Please, please, please take every precaution to avoid being impacted by a car break-in, as smash & grab thefts have been on the rise city-wide. You can’t lose anything of value from your car if there isn’t anything of value in your car!
The best way to avoid becoming a victim of theft is to take public transport, rideshare, or taxi to the venue. The 8, 9, 29, 52, and 54 MUNI bus lines are a short walk away from the course. Walking from bus lines that go along Mission Street and the light rail T train are a bit of a longer walk, but is certainly feasible.
Coming from BART, it’s best to get off at Balboa Park Station and transfer to either the 29 or 54, both heading southeast.
Should you choose to drive to the course, we recommend checking the state of traffic online before heading over. Bay Area freeway traffic is known to be a slog during commute hours, especially when coming from the East Bay. Please plan for extra travel time when driving to the course on Friday, though weekend travel times can be just as bad.
Gates Open / Entrance
The only entrance to the course is located at 2100 Sunnydale Ave. Tickets are available to purchase at the gate via cash, Venmo, PayPal, and Square. If you have pre-purchased your tickets, they can be scanned from your mobile device.
The first tee times of the day are at 8 AM, guests can begin entering the course at 7:45 AM. Guests are encouraged to bring a bag or backpack to carry their belongings, as bag check is available only to our competitors. Again, please do not leave anything in your car!
Food and beverages are available on site for purchase, with vegetarian options available. Guests are welcome to bring their own food and (non-alcoholic) beverages.
Gleneagles hosts one of the finest 19th holes in the golf world, featuring a full bar with drinks that can be brought out onto the course. For this reason, outside alcohol is strictly prohibited.
The Disc Golf Pro Tour prohibits all competitors from smoking during competition. Please visit the DGPT website for the complete policy.

Although we are approaching what would be summer in most places, San Francisco can be notoriously chilly no matter the time of year. Gleneagles is one of the windiest and foggiest spots in San Francisco. There may be some light rain / mist, so a light rain jacket and layers will be essential to your enjoyment. Check out the forecast.
