Season's Greetings from SF Public Golf Alliance

2013  Was A  Very Good Year 
  1. Sharp Park’s 81st Anniversary Tournament in May was a big success:
  2. Sharp Park head greenskeeper Wayne Kappelman was honored by the Golfdom Magazine as the 2012 Golf Businessman of the Year, for his pesticide-free, environmentally-sensitive golf course maintenance methods. 
But we lost a great friend with the passing in May of San Francisco native son, 1964 U.S. Open Champion, and San Francisco Public Golf Alliance Honorary Chairman Ken Venturi.  We will miss Ken.
2014  will bring new challenges in fending-off the anti-golf crowd’s repeated attacks at Sharp Park; and we will continue to work with public agencies and officials in San Francisco, San Mateo County, and Pacifica towards the goal of renovating Alister MacKenzie’s historic links, while recovering compatible habitat for frogs and snakes.  
Hang in there with us. 
If, in this Season of Sharing, you can find a way to help the San Francisco Public Golf Alliance in our common fight to Save Sharp Park, we appreciate donations of any kind or amount.  We are a 501.c.3 non-profit, public benefit organization.  
Here's to 2014 !
