ABOUT GOLDEN GATE PAR CHASERS
The Golden Gate Par Chasers (GGPC) Golf Club is a regular Northern California Golf Association (NCGA) club. Our home course is Lake Chabot Golf Course in Oakland, CA. The GGPC Golf Club is an interesting combination of personalities, professions and golf skills. The goal of our club is to provide a friendly but competitive environment to members at all playing levels.
The GGPC is now a diverse club. Our club's name was derived from the golf course that we located at the Golden Gate Fields Race Track's golf course. After that course closed, the club moved to the 9-hole golf course at Lake Chabot where it gained recognition as the first Black recognized NCGA club. The club was founded in 1971 by a group of Black San Francisco Bay Area golfers. The club joined the NCGA on August 15, 1975. The late Murry Jacobs was the club's 1st Pro.
