If you can get on the course, it's a treat. Even has scenic views of SF skyline from the 18th tee box. I like the grill at the course for breakfast or lunch too.

The course used to be open for students, now it seems to be open only for Stanford students. Visitors need to have a Stanford faculty member, spouse to one or other person that can serve as host. Even after that the greenfee is pretty heavy...More

My understanding is that this course is not open to the public, for play. Those with Stanford affiliations and their guests can play. There is a little clubhouse that is freely open to the public, but I wouldn't consider it worth a visit by itself.
