Imagine what would have been had the G.G.B never been built, and Fort Point never closed ...
This is not that story of a future that isn't a reality.


*set the winds to be blowing southeast with at least a medium or better offshore breeze ...







*********************
* Background Notes:
*********************
* 1776: The Spanish Military built the Presidio at the entrance of the S.F. Bay

* January 24th, 1848: Gold discovered in California, after James Marshall was looking for his mis-hit golf shot into Sutter Creek when He was suppose to be working, tending the saw mill.

* September 9th, 1850: California becomes the 31st State. After hearing that golf was being played out West, which triggered a rush of people looking for greener Greens, all because someone hit his ball into the water ... (he still made Par on the long dogleg par 5)

* 1853: U.S. Army Corp of Eng. start building plans for a outpost to deter the massive influx of east coast golfers looking for prime real estate to build premium priced golf courses. Fort Point was finished and opened in 1861

* 1892: Government attempting to squeeze out the military to gain access to the Presidio Fort Point Golf Course - the greedy politicians doing the best fore all golfers.

* April 18th, 1906: Fort Point experienced moderate damage from a major tremor. It was then used as a golfer refugee camp for housing, training, and storage of golf equipment. for the next 40 years [from 1892].

* 1913: in attempts to keep on the government military CHEEZE WAGON, there was plans in the works to make the Fort, into a prison for outlaw golf gangs roaming the course in drunken rage, but it was shortly lived as the Feds decided Alcatraz would be better.

* January 5th, 1933: The Beginning of the end of the golf those playing at the Fort will remember. This was the day the Bridge construction began.

It was determined by the governor, that with all the new influx of money the "East Coast" aristocrats brought into the northern side of the Marin Headlands and Mt. Tamalpias needed a way to bring more golfers to the Presidio course, as it was proving to be a money magnet. For the very reason the "Fort" was built to keep out the invasion of illegal golfers form out of region, now was to be doomed by a bridge to overrun the course with more golfers and longer tee time standing around waiting for a group of senor women's tournaments scheduled 4 days per week. Lead by a very young Nancy Pelosini.

* April 19th 1937: The Golden Gate Bridge was opened spanning the mouth to the Pacific.

* 1937 was the end of the fort for its protection was no longer needed ... the golf course as remembered by what was available from the burnt remains of the original course diagram, is now lost forever.

* October 16th 1970: Fort Point becomes a National Historical Site, granted by President Richard Nixon

* December 11th, 2021: A realistic Fantasy has been recreated and fact-checked by FB police and all information may, or may not contain a smidgeon of truth if stretched far enough.


Please play and Enjoy your round on this 7342 yard coastal Highland themed Golf Fantasy.

Just played another round at your Presidio course. Forgot to tell you the first time how much I enjoyed with you created. Your plantings, objects, and the ocean views from those beautiful elevations made this a course to remember. Always enjoy the courses you create ( plus it gives me great ideas!)
Thanks
