Default Junipero Serra County Park, San Bruno California

I'm very pleased to announce that the San Mateo County Rec and Park Dept. has asked me to submit a draft design and course proposal for this lovely park just 20 minutes south of San Francisco.

The park has some sweet terrain, excellent views of the airport and the bay, outfitted already with bathrooms, potable water, picnic/bbq areas, and a pimp children's playground that will keep your toddlers happy while you rip chains.

If all goes well, the course will be a nice challenge for most players and a blast for even top pros. Judging from the time I've spent there, I think 18 holes will do with many lefts, rights, ups, downs, as well as tight and open. Lots of contrast is possible, and multiple pin positions will be included in the design.

Timetable:
- submit draft and proposal: Jan 10

After that, the ball is in the county's court. They will likely do some public outreach which could slow the course's development. If the neighbors are cool with it, then apparently we will get fast tracked and can get to building sooner than later!

Thats fantastic! I can't wait to play there, as well as all the other bay area courses that appear to be on the horizon.

I live in SF, so props to a peninsula course!

As an idea, maybe to help course design, or even an eye opener for the park officials, maybe you could organize a Safari Tournament.

I know the SF DGG community could find 18 pins and would really rally behind something new.

It could also be used to help raise funds if you got permission to go so far.
$50 x 100 people = $5000.

Sounds great, I'd definitely come down from the City to play that. Especially when GGP is crowded...



EDIT:

This is NOT the same as McLaren park proposal right? THis is a totally seperate course? (I'm new to SF still)

Totally different park. I met with the parks director today, and we're moving forward on this. It looks like we may begin course installation as soon as April. Stay tuned...

What's crazy is that there's this huge ugly statue of junipero serra along 280 just south of the park that bears his name. He was a franciscan friar who helped the spanish establish all of the california missions back in the 1700s...

But in this rendition...he looks like he's on one knee making a putt.

we have to use this in a disc design
