Oakland, California – A surprisingly historic golf destination

I’ve been in and out of Oakland and Berkeley in the Bay Area on countless occasions over the years since my first visit in the late 80s.

Like most, nearby San Francisco and other parts of Northern California had always hogged my golf interests.

It wasn’t until last year that I discovered how much of golf’s history has been written on the fairways – and parking lots – of Oakland. Who’d have thought!?
