San Diego man upset with conditions at historic golf course

Larry Stirling: Presidio Golf Course in bad shape

SAN DIEGO - A San Diego man told Team 10 he is upset with the conditions of the Presidio Hills Golf Course in Old Town.

Former San Diego City Councilman Larry Stirling contacted Team 10 about problems with the course on Wallace Street.

Stirling showed Team 10 Troubleshooter Cristin Severance huge patches of dry and dead grass, broken signs, graffiti and piles of junk.  

The city owned golf course is under the care of a leaseholder and has been in Old Town since 1932. Sterling called it a jewel of San Diego that's been forgotten and neglected.

Team 10 brought his concerns to the city's Parks & Recreation Department and City Council President Todd Gloria.

He told Team 10 in a statement:

"In response to Mr. Stirling's concerns, my staff visited the golf course and has reached out to the leaseholder. I agree with Mr. Stirling that our City assets should be well-maintained and hope this matter can be quickly addressed."

Team 10 will follow up on this story to make sure repairs are made to the course.
