The non-profit SF Public Golf Alliance has organized, informed, advocated, and successfully fought since 2007 for public golf and public golf courses in San Francisco, the Peninsula, and California. Our annual benefit tournament is how we fund our Mission to nurture and defend affordable, eco-friendly, public golf. A special focus has been the landmark 90-year-old Sharp Park, MacKenzie’s only seaside public links outside Scotland, where our work over the years and ongoing has involved in-kind donations of course improvements, environmental consultants, and public education campaigns.

Whether you've participated and enjoyed past tournaments, or if you are considering joining for the first time, you don't want to miss this one! We have fun additions and surprises planned for this year’s tournament and we can’t wait for you to see them.
