San Francisco is planning to study the utilization of our seven mostly vacant and money losing golf courses. SF Party Party tees off on Gavin Newsom giving away 440 acres of prime public space to golfers, guestimating 50 pissed off golfers in total or about 8 golfers per golf course or 1/2 golfer per hole – approximately $10,000 a swing!
There is not enough public space in San Francisco and the time has come to open up our public land to the public in the form of parks, soccer fields, skate parks, etc. Sure keep a couple golf courses, just enough to cover the actual demand.
A flute without holes, is not a flute. A donut without a hole, is a Danish. - Ty Webb: Caddyshack (1980)Another alternative is Gavin Sucks.com at the historic Tenderloin Golf Course. The tees, fairways and greens are undergoing election year restoration, paved with fresh asphalt and lined by sidewalks with a modern drainage system to encourage "firm and fast" conditions. Offline shots are more likely to roll into difficult spots among or behind newly planted Mexican Fan Palms. Natural waste areas, lower-level bunkers, greenside chipping areas and water hazards may also come into play more often.
