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 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 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 and Harding Park Golf Courses in less than ideal conditions. Playing 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
U.S. Open Champion Ken Venturi, 1999 U.S. Women’s Open Champion Julie Inkster, and 1969 Masters’ Champion George Archer.
