Sharp Park Golf Course continues.
If our County manages the site
-- well, that should be okay too.
"County Manager John Maltbie and his legal team will sit down in closed session with San Francisco officials to discuss possibly leasing the Sharp Park Golf Course in Pacifica.
 .... The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously in 2012 to explore the possibility of taking over management of the golf course, which takes up about 120 acres of the 400-acre park adjacent to the ocean and south of the Pacifica Pier.

Officials with both counties started to negotiate a 30-year lease for San Mateo County to manage the golf course but a lawsuit by environmental groups alleging that San Francisco failed to maintain the habitat for the red-legged frogs and San Francisco garter snakes slowed those talks. A judge has since dismissed the lawsuit. .... The closed session is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 5, 400 County Center, Redwood City."  Read article. 

Reference, San Francisco Recreation and Parks/Sharp Park Golf Course, "Sharp Park Golf Course is an historic seaside links, designed by the preeminent architect Alister MacKenzie, who also designed Augusta National (home of the Masters Tournament), Cypress Point, and many of the world’s most esteemed courses.  Sharp Park is one of MacKenzie’s rare public links."
