Thank you so much for leading the charge in the effort to “Stay the Course.” As a now- 21 year old college student, I spent 5-6 summers at SRGC as a youth golfer and learned the game there as a young child. The golf course was like a second home to me, with the staff playing the role of a family. Not only did I hone my golf skills, I gained great friendships and learned so much about myself and my peers. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without SRGC being there as a resource.
The land grab that is taking place is truly a travesty, and for many of us who practically grew up at SRGC, it comes as a extremely sad news. This was more than just a golf course; it was a place centered on diversity and a sense of community. In today’s divisive world, that can’t be said for many places.
I am currently working abroad for the summer, but will be back in California for a few days at the end of August. After that, I will be returning to Washington D.C to start school again and would be more than happy to speak to Congressman Swalwell if need be. Additionally, I have worked for Assemblywoman Baker in the past and would love to talk to her about this project.
This is truly something that means so much to my family and I, and I am so grateful to you for doing this. Please let me know how I can help.
