Alister MacKenzie Save Sharp Park Tourney Set for May 31

sharp_bannerThe Third Annual Alister MacKenzie Tournament to Save Sharp Park will be held Saturday, May 31 at Sharp Park Golf Course.

A $175 entry fee covers 18 holes of golf, tee prizes and a donation to the cause of saving Alister MacKenzie’s historic public Sharp Park golf links.

At center stage in recent months, proposed work on the 82-year-old course involves clearing reeds and sediment from a pond and waterway, construction around a pumping station and the installation of a new, small pond on the course.

Recently,  the San Francisco Chronicle reported that construction at Sharp Park GC will move forward after the San Francisco Board of Supervisors rejected environmentalists’ concerns that the project will threaten frogs and snakes at the course.

Back in January,  the City Planning Commission agreed to move ahead with construction at Sharp Park Golf Course, despite complaints from environmentalists.

The fight is still not over.

The tournament format will be foursome scramble with two shotgun starts at 7:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Along with a BBQ lunch, after the golf there will be a silent auction and other festivities in the clubhouse.

The tournament is being hosted by the San Francisco Public Golf Alliance, together with the Sharp Park men’s and women’s golf clubs, Pacifica Chamber of Commerce, Pacifica Historical Society and the Alister MacKenzie Foundation. All proceeds will go to the ongoing campaign to Save Sharp Park Golf Course.
