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.  A special focus has been the landmark 90-year-old Sharp Park, MacKenzie’s only seaside public links outside Scotland.

The annual Alister MacKenzie Tournament – on Covid hiatus since 2019 – has been our main annual fundraising effort.  We are now back at it, and invite you to join the fun at Sharp on Nov. 12: a 4-some team scramble golf event, followed by golf auction and late lunch.  Sign-up to sponsor, bring a team, or just bring yourself. 

And do not miss the fabulous Alister Mackenzie #SaveSharpPark on-line Golf Auction! Fabulous private and public golf courses from across the Bay Area and the country. And theres more! PING putters and drivers, original golf art, golf lessons, and a compendium of Dr. MacKenzie’s writings. Open for Bidding HERE and NOW!
