We wanted to extend our warmest gratitude to Tracey for everything she did for us on our special day. Our Saturday evening reception at the Presidio was perfect and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate with our friends and family. The event was so gorgeous and amazing; it was perfect. Everything, big and small, Tracey was there to help us and bring it all together. From our last minute candy/cupcake table, the table arrangements, to the food, everyone raved about how great the event was and how everything was put together so eloquently. I know my wife was worried about things running smoothly and everyone having a great time, this reception dramatically exceeded all of our expectations. We absolutely LOVED Tracey. She was awesome to work with, very easy going and nice, and it definitely made us at ease about booking this venue from Texas and really only seeing the location once with the rest of correspondence by email. We couldn’t have asked for a better way to start our new journey together. As cliché as it is, if we did it all over again, we would pick the Presidio 10 times out of 10. Best. Day. Ever.

EVERYTHING was perfect; the food, the layout, the wonderful staff who were ever so present, respectful and pleasant… I will highly recommend the Presidio Cafe to everyone I know who is looking to throw a party, for any occasion.

If you are looking for a great venue in a beautiful setting at a great value look no further! We held our wedding reception here in April and we could not have been happier with our choice. Our experience started with meeting the director of sales Ms. Tracey Lyons, she is a pleasure to work with. Tracey is a great communicator, she accommodated every request, had helpful suggestions, and worked hard to keep us on budget.

Let me tell you about THE FOOD! Our guests are still talking about it. The chef, Caleb greeted us at our tasting, went over each selection, and was able to accommodate several dietary requirements for our guests. We served a filet mignon and salmon they were both delicious and the vegetarian risotto was so good my husband chose that as his meal even though he is a total carnivore! Erin was our event manager that night and she took excellent care of us all night.

The service was first class, everyone was gracious and the evening went on without a single flaw. I could not recommend this place more for your event. It might be a while, but we will be back to celebrate our anniversaries here.

We held our wedding reception for 150 people at this venue and could not be happier. The Director of Sales, Tracey Lyons, guided us through the process from beginning to end with a professional and responsive demeanor. We chose this space first, to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings of the Presidio, which of course come free of charge 🙂 Secondly, because of ease of parking for our guests. Lastly, and most importantly, we chose to take advantage of the all-inclusive nature of their event options.

You need not worry about hiring a caterer, bringing in a bar/beverage provider, selecting a cake maker or fussing with tables, chairs, linens and dinnerware…it’s all taken care of for you! Put your reservations aside that the venue is, in fact, a golf clubhouse. The restaurant and tent successfully transform into a truly impressive space with a more high-end vibe than you would expect from a golf “Clubhouse”, which I would not necessarily even label this as during the day.

We found ourselves having so much more fun at our own party than we would have expected. We owe that not only to the confidence inspiring planning from Tracey, but to the high attention to detail from the event manager Nick, and the precision service by the Banquet Captain Erin and her team. But let’s not forget the incredible food prepared by the Chef (whom we got to meet and discuss food sourcing and pairings with during our tasting) and his team, which more than satisfied our guests (a difficult feat in a City where all the food is top-notch!).

Overall the space is beautiful and well managed…I would definitely recommend for events and weddings.

One of the reasons why my husband and I chose to have our wedding at the Golf Course and Clubhouse in Presidio was because of Tracey! She was super friendly and warm during our initial meeting. She answered all our questions and we felt so confident that she could give us a wonderful wedding. After that, no other venue compared, and we booked our wedding with them.

Tracey was really on top of things, emailing back and forth with my husband and I. Every time I spoke to Tracey I knew that everything was going to be fine. She is amazing at keeping you calm (and especially planning a wedding, you definitely need someone that won’t stress you out even more!)

Another great thing about having our wedding here was the food. The tasting we had with Chef Caleb was amazing!!! Everything he served us was so delicious! Especially the mini beef wellingtons and his halibut! We had a hard time choosing between the chicken and filet mignon because they were both great! Ultimately, we chose the fish and the filet mignon, but if we could have, we would have chosen everything!

The day of the wedding, I wasn’t nervous at all, because I knew that Tracey would take care of it. And she really did! The venue was beautiful. The ceremony outside looked so pretty with the arch and the white chairs. The inside looked just as equally beautiful with the white lanterns, very simple, but very nice. Nick, one of the event managers, was very professional and easy going. He was a great help. Also, I had a special request for Tracey: that she save some of our hors de ouvres for the bridal party. 🙂 And she made it happen! While we were taking pictures in the ceremony area, she had servers come out and bring us food! It was great! The servers were amazing! They were super attentive, friendly, and helpful.

Tracey always talked so highly of the servers and staff and they really did a great job making sure we were taken care of. One server, a lady with dark glasses and red hair, was especially wonderful. She took care of all our needs. My husband had a little surprise for me (he bought a pint of my favorite ice cream and brought it for me to have during the wedding, because I’m an ice cream fanatic and I HAD to have some for our wedding), but she made sure that I didn’t leave without the ice cream. She was so sweet!

My husband and I were VERY happy with all the  staff at the Presidio Golf Course and Clubhouse. They did everything that we wanted them to do and they went over and beyond our expectations. Thank you all soo sooo much! We cannot thank you enough!

My husband and I had our wedding at the clubhouse in January 2016 and we had the time of our lives!

We wanted to get married in SF since that is where we met and live, but also wanted greenery and space versus cement/buildings. The Clubhouse was a perfect fit! The venue is gorgeous and well maintained-and you get a great view from the tent and feel as if you are outside. We also wanted to make sure it was a venue easy for our guests to get to/park-there is a large parking lot free of charge that easily accommodated all of our guests (approx. 160).

The staff, Tracey in particular, were absolutely amazing. Tracey was responsive during the planning process and incredibly accommodating. She knows what works in the space and what doesn’t and will be honest with you, she also has tons of experience with vendors in the area and recommended great people. Since we had a winter wedding (sun sets early), I was concerned about not having enough light for pictures after the ceremony, Tracey graciously offered to let us start the ceremony earlier. We also had to have a backup plan for rain. It poured the day before the wedding, but Tracey had a backup plan in place, watched the weather all Saturday morning and kept me in the loop for her plans. She may have been more worried about the rain than us! It stopped raining Friday night, we were able to do the ceremony outside-the lawn was perfect despite the pouring rain the night before.

Last shout out to the staff, during the reception two of my friends had to run home to take care of their baby and were going to come back for dancing and skip out on dinner. I asked the staff if they could make plates for them for when they returned. As soon as my friends walked back in the door the staff had dinner waiting for them. Being brand new/exhausted parents-it meant a lot to them and they partied all night!

Food was amazing, everyone raved about it (short ribs, salmon, winter roasted veggie pasta); we did an open bar and drinks were delicious. One thing I loved is since the clubhouse is a restaurant, the bar is an actual bar not a table with black tablecloth over it, our guests gathered around the bar and fostered a fun bar-like atmosphere-especially since the dance floor was right next to the bar…although people drank a lot, which is what we wanted, but might be something to keep in mind if that isn’t your thing.

I can’t say enough great things about the clubhouse. You can’t go wrong!
