Global Golf Post, the world’s leading golf news brand, announced that it would once again donate the funds for the greens fees of all finalists in the 2020 San Francisco City Championship.
“As we have in the previous four years, we want to support this historically significant tournament and the players who compete in it,” said founder and publisher Jim Nugent.
In addition, each contestant will receive a sleeve of balls and a Global Golf Post hat and towel.
Under the plan, all 20 of the finalists at TPC Harding Park on March 1 will not have to pay any greens fees to compete in their championship matches. In addition, the winners will be featured in a congratulatory ad in the March 9 edition of Global Golf Post.
The San Francisco City Golf Championship, known locally as “The City,” is an annual golf tournament hosted by the City of San Francisco. It is a match-play event and boasts one of the largest fields of any tournament in the nation, broken down into five separate divisions: men’s, men’s senior, men’s super senior, women’s, and open.
The San Francisco City Championship was inaugurated in 1917 and is the country’s oldest municipal golf tournament. Another thing that makes the championship a unique event is the inclusion of an open division, allowing for golfers of varying abilities to compete. Those familiar with the championship will tell you about the tradition of playing the ball as it lies at San Francisco’s Lincoln Park and TPC Harding Park golf courses in less than ideal conditions. Conditions are the same for everyone; the ability to accept the occasional bad break is paramount to a competitor’s success. Past champions include 1964 US Open champion Ken Venturi, two-time US Women’s Open champion Juli Inkster and 1969 Masters champion George Archer.
“Amateur golf is a part of the DNA of Global Golf Post,” added Nugent. “We take great pride and similar joy in supporting the amateur game, globally.”
