Supe welcomes President's Cup to The City

Supervisor Sean Elsbernd introduced a resolution Tuesday welcoming the Presidents Cup to San Francisco, which will take place on the Harding Park golf course, which is in Elsbernd’s district.

The world’s greatest golfers will hit the links from Oct. 6-11. Not only that but “we are expecting no only big names in the golf world but big names in the political worlds, big names in the entertainment worldm,” Elsbernd.

President Barak Obama is expected to attend, along with Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and George Bush.

“You can expect well over 100,000 spectators,” Elsbernd said, and the event will be broadcasted in more than 200 counties.

The millions of dollars in prize money is all donated to charity. Other significant facts is that Harding is the first publicly-owned golf course to host this tournament. And, as Elsberdn said,“You really can’t put a dollar figure, you can’t put a value on what is to see the world’s best playing on the same course that you grew up on or that you can go play the next week.”

What is the Presidents Cup? It is a biennial, team match play competition between the United States and the world’s best non European players.
