Sharp Park Golf Course Closure In Mayor Lee’s Hands

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has given final approval to a measure that environmentalists hope will result in the closure of Sharp Park Golf Course in Pacifica.

The legislation requires the Recreation and Parks Department to enter into a long-term agreement with the National Park Service to manage the land at Sharp Park. That would mean an end to the golf course, owned by the City of San Francisco.

Now it’s time for Mayor Ed Lee to decide whether to veto the measure. He’s repeatedly said he wants the golf course to remain in it’s current location.

”I think there’s room to protect the species that are there and run a well-managed golf course,” said Lee.

KCBS’ Barbara Taylor Reports:

Preservationists contend that the golf course adversely affects the San Francisco garter snake, an endangered species, and the California red-legged frog, a threatened species.

Meanwhile, San Mateo County, which wants to keep the golf course, has also been angling to manage the land. Mayor Lee supported bringing San Mateo into the mix, but without that happening a veto is his only option to guarantee that the golf course, which has been around since 1932, won’t be closed down.

    NORAHG Responds to the IMMINENT CLOSURE of Sharp Park Golf Course, San Francisco, California.

    MEDIA RELEASE

    Sharp Park Golf Course is NOT harming animal species.

    As usual, Enviro-Lunatics DESPISE the Game of Golf.

    Anti-Golf Organizations like National Parks Conservation Association and Wild Equity Institute have TERRORIZED the City of San Francisco for years over the future of Sharp Park Golf Course.

    The golf facility MAY STILL BE CLOSED because of their RELENTLESS AND UNCEASING LIES and MIS-INFORMATION.

    The habitat that Enviro-Lunatics are trying to « recover » was originally created when the golf course was built along with a sea wall, isolating the Laguna Sal from ocean waves.

    IF the golf course had NEVER BEEN BUILT, there would be no habitat for the endangered species.

    Anti-Golf Enviro-Lunatics seek the DESTRUCTION of the Golf Industry.

    These terrorists ATTACK the Golf Industry under the Pretext of ALLEGED ill-effects on the habitats
    of obscure and insignificant species like Garter Snakes and Tadpoles.

    The Golf Industry Should Tell Anti-Golf Activists to Get OFF Our grASS and Roast In Hell.

    We are living in the DARK AGE OF ANTI PESTICIDE TERRORISM where sound science is trumped by FAKE SCIENTISTS, JUNK SCIENCE and UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE through FABRICATION, INNUENDO, and INTERNET RUMOUR ― scientific research PROVES that pest control products CAUSE NO HARM and can be USED SAFELY.
