One of the best municipal golf courses I’ve ever played is Sharp Park. This is true muni golf. Here, you’re not going to find a club house full of fancy trappings or too many pleated pants stepping out of sports cars in the parking lot.
Instead, this 1932 Alister MacKenzie design is a place for the everyman. There’s no judgement and everyone is welcome.
In 2014, Golfweek Magazine named Sharp Park as one of the 50 best municipal golf courses in the nation and it’s easy to see why. Even though it only measures 6,300 yards, this par 72 is full of character and will keep you on your toes. A mixture of long and short holes force you think your way around and execute full shots with precision.
For a golf course that’s one of the busiest in the San Francisco area, I was taken aback with how well-maintained Sharp Park is.
