In golf, you will find many common denominators in the people associated with the great game of golf. There are those that donate massive amounts of time to referee and marshall NCGA events. There are those that contribute to the game by being involved with the USGA and R&A. All of these people have a common thread, and that’s the love of this great game, they are the unsung heroes that make this game so great.
I look for many ways I can give back to the game that has enriched my life through those I’ve met, and those who have made it all possible. I am motivated and confident that together we can raise $100,000 for the San Francisco City, and move it back to its home Harding Park, with the players paying NO green fees!!
Thru hundreds of people I have met, and become friends with, I want to congratulate Jim Nugent for his tremendous passion for the game, especially the AMATEUR GAME. Jim Nugent the founder and publisher of the Global Golf Post, today announced that it will donate the funds for the greens fees for all of the finalists of the 2016 San Francisco City Championship in all flights!!

Global Golf Post Donates Funds for Tee Times
At San Francisco City Championship Finals
Winter Park, Fla. (March 2, 2016) — Global Golf Post, the world’s leading digital golf news magazine, today announced that it will donate the funds for the greens fees for all of the finalists of the 2016 San Francisco City Championship.
“We got our inspiration from Bay Area amateur golfer Randy Haag,” said Global Golf Post’s founder and publisher Jim Nugent. “On the eve of the championship, he pointed out in his blog that competitors had to pay their greens fees as they advanced. We have been a sponsor of this historically-significant amateur event for several years, and I thought we could do even more to support it.”
Under the plan, all 22 of the finalists at Harding Park GC on March 13 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 14 edition of Global Golf Post.
Finalist Flights are:
“Amateur golf is a part of the DNA of The Post,” added Nugent. “We take great pride and similar joy in supporting the amateur game, globally.”

About the San Francisco City Golf Championship
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 files 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 City Championship a unique event is the inclusion of an “Open” Division, allowing for golfers of varying abilities to compete. Those familiar with the City Championship will tell you about the tradition of playing the ball as it lies at San Francisco’s Lincoln, Presidio and 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, 1999 US Women’s Open Champion Julie Inkster, and 1969 Masters Champion George Archer.
