Lets hope to celebrate the 81st year golf course anniversary, and many more to come!
Pacifica Tribune/Horace Hinshaw Sports Editor, 4/24/12. "Environmental friendly Sharp Park."
"On April 16, 1932, the Sharp Park Golf Course opened with 400 golfers playing the Alister Mackenzie course. Last week, on Monday, April 16, on the 80th anniversary of the golf course I was at Sharp Park at 6 a.m. to talk to the first golfers of the day.
..."Many people don't realize that for the past four years Sharp Park has been an all-organic golf course," exclaims Kappelman. "We do not use pesticides. No chemical derived fertilizers or chemical treatment for the weeds. It's been a challenge to eradicate some of the weeds and keep them under control and still maintain good playing conditions."
* Wayne Kappelman is Sharp Park Golf Course superintendent.
