Formation

The San Francisco Mayor’s Women’s Golf Council was founded in July of 2014 by Mayor Ed Lee in support of his passion for San Francisco Golf and his interests of seeing the game promoted and played more by Women at San Francisco Golf Courses. The Mayor’s vision started with a luncheon held at Harding Park attended by 24 men and women who gathered to share their experiences, passions and goals to increase the awareness of San Francisco Golf; whether by learning the game, playing the game or participating as a spectator of the game at the various tournaments held in the Bay Area.

A Board was created to form an infrastructure of volunteers to implement the Mayor’s goals in making San Francisco “The most women friendly Golf City in America”. With events like the Swinging Skirts held at Lake Merced Country Club, the 2016 Women’s US Open coming to Cordevalle in San Martin and the historic San Francisco City Championship held annually at Harding Park, the San Francisco Bay Area has been an iconic host location for the best players in the World.

This is the first program in our country supported by a Mayor who understands the virtues of golf that embraces the nine core values taught by the First Tee that instills attributes that stay with us for a lifetime through a game that provides fun, exercise and friendship in the greatest city in the world.

This website will be your one stop shop for information on Women’s San Francisco Bay Area Golf.

Ladies... it's time to play!
