A proposal to hand over Sharp Park Golf Course to the National Park Service passed the Board of Supervisors yesterday. If the feds are in charge of the park, the golf course will likely be shut down, as NPS doesn't have a lot of interest in running a golf course and the course has been accused of threatening native species of garter snakes and red-legged frogs. Mayor Ed Lee is considering vetoing the legislation, given concerns over the historic significance of the course and and questions about the true environmental impact. The course has run a deficit of $1,200,000 over the past five years, so if golfers are going to save it, they better be willing to pony up some cold, hard cash to the city. [SF Appeal]
