Volunteers Needed NOW to Stop the Assault on Golf!
SF Supervisor John Avalos has introduced legislation that would turn over control of Sharp Park to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. This would mean an end to nearly 80 years of golf at Sharp Park! We must stop this legislation in its tracks!! We must get the word out to all San Francisco-area golfers that our sport in San Francisco is under attack. The SFPGA is looking for volunteers who can spare just a couple hours on the weekends to educate golfers and gather signatures to repel Sup. Avalos’ attack on Sharp Park. If you are available, even for two hours, please send an email to our volunteer coordinator Andrew Brown at theSFPGA@gmail.com.
