A New Plan for Sharp Park Golf Course and the San Francisco Garter

San Francisco’s Recreation and Parks Department has proposed a “Solomonic” solution to the fate of Sharp Park Golf Course, owned by the City of San Francisco but contained within nearby Pacifica and habitat for the San Francisco Garter Snake. Environmentalists wanted the golf course restored to its natural state; the Department recommends keeping the course open, but with some modifications to accomodate the snake.
