Help save Marin’s beloved San Geronimo Golf Course!
AFFORDABLE & ECO-FRIENDLY PUBLIC GOLF & FAMILY EVENTS
For over 50 years the San Geronimo Golf Course has served residents of Marin County as a recreational asset, open to and enjoyed by all members of our community. Not just for golfers, the non-golfing community enjoys this beautiful space too - for social gatherings, community meetings, nonprofit fundraisers, weddings and as a music venue.
The clubhouse restaurant hosts many nonprofit community events and family gatherings.
We’re working hard to preserve this historic and beloved golf course for future generations of Marin residents and visitors to enjoy.
COURT RULES GOLF COURSE PURCHASE ILLEGAL
MARIN SUPERIOR COURT DECISION: On October 26, Marin Superior Court ruled that state laws required Marin county to perform an environmental review before purchasing the San Geronimo Golf Course, for the purpose of shutting it down and changing the land to open space. The sale was challenged by Niz Brown as named party, on behalf of San Geronimo Advocates, a group of local residents.
TO: THE SUPERVISORS & OFFICERS OF MARIN COUNTY
The note below was sent to the Supervisors, County Counsel and Director of Marin County Parks. Niz Brown spoke to the points at the Supervisors meeting on October 30, 2018.
SENSIBLE SOLUTION: OPERATE GOLF COURSE WITH A PERMANENT CONSERVATION EASEMENT
Marin County Parks should continue to operate the golf course, and keep its options open for future use. Read more by clicking on the link below …

WHO WE ARE
We are a team of passionate Marin County volunteers committed to saving the San Geronimo Golf Course, upholding eco-friendliness, restoring our creeks and unifying our community. Our team is made-up of golfers and non-golfers - we are all fighting to save this treasured Marin County asset.
Our community spirit lies at the heart of everything we do … and our young people need a future to look forward to.
We feel cheated in having no right to vote on the future use of the San Geronimo Golf Course land. We believe in due process, and believe the Board of Supervisors should properly consult the people on how this unique golf course land will be used.
Please support our grassroots coalition of Marin County residents who are working to preserve our beloved San Geronimo Golf Course.
Our goal is to save the people’s right to vote on the future use of the golf course land, and to challenge the Board of Supervisors for not giving us - the people - the right to have our say in how our tax dollars are spent.
The people of Marin County were never consulted on the use of the San Geronimo Golf Course Land. A decision was made ‘behind closed doors’.
The County’s plans for the property run contrary to the San Geronimo Valley Community Plan approved by the Board of Supervisors in 1997.
Our team of voluntary Marin County residents are engaged in asking concerned Marin County voters to save San Geronimo Golf Course.
Save the course for now and future generations.
We are people inclusive - all people, young and old, right across the board!
At San Geronimo Golf Course, we welcome locals and visitors alike.
And we’re also a dog-friendly course … our 4-legged friends are welcome too.
In Marin County we are a close-knit community, proud of our beautiful environment and community spirit ... for young and old ... and all racial diversity.
We welcome visitors to our golf course, and our course lies at the center of our community! But the Supervisors want to close it down!
The San Geronimo Golf Course is 'open to the public' ... but for how long?
