6th Annual Benefit Tournament to Preserve & Protect the Historic Integrity of MacKenzie's Sharp Park Golf

The Alister MacKenzie Benefit Tournament to Save Sharp Park is an annual event that just gets better Every year the local Pacifica community, Bay Area golfers, MacKenzie enthusiasts around the world, and golfing notables gather to support our muni diamond in the rough. With no lawsuits pending and a major political win in the rear view mirror, there was definitely a more optimistic tenor to the proceedings.

The day started cool, grey, and foggy - which is to say - a typical Pacifica day. But the fog burned off by mid afternoon and we finished the round in Malibu-like sunshine.

Brad, Other Bob, and Stuart filled out our foursome. We actually finished respectably - 3 under in the Scramble format - mostly on the strength of (mostly) Stuart's eagle on 9.

 Sure our 3 under par was 15 strokes behind the winners, but it's the first time my group has finished this format below par.  So there's that.

What am I drinking? 
That's better.
Some pics and highlights from a great day on the classic track:

Bob was doing a little tree pruning on the course.

This was a practice swing

The day wrapped up with a great buffet and a few inspirational words about the status and future of our favorite muni.
