Whether in town for business or vacation, revel in your member reciprocity benefits with the oldest athletic club in the country. Established in 1860, the Olympic Club in San Francisco highlights the importance of community in its long-standing tradition of dynamo athletics while maintaining a dignified and luxurious atmosphere complete with dining and hotel facilities.
Location While the Lakeside Clubhouse rests on the Pacific Ocean off Interstate 280 near Lake Merced, the City Club can be found in the heart of downtown San Francisco, one block from Union Square and nearby restaurants, theaters and shopping.
Athletics With members boasting Olympic medals, Masters swimming records and national titles, it is no surprise the Olympic Club provides high-end fitness facilities including a cardio solarium, handball and squash courts, circuit training rooms, two basketball courts, two swimming pools, yoga studios and tennis courts.
Amenities Stay the night in the elegant, historic hotel and delight in spectacular dining at either clubhouse, but bear in mind the obligatory dress code and technology policy (no cell phones or laptops are allowed, except in clubhouse parking lots).
Golf The Lakeside Clubhouse offers two 18-hole courses and one par-three course on the rolling hills between Lake Merced and the Pacific Ocean. Having hosted five U.S. Open competitions, the Lake Course is a good spot for those looking to test their swing.
