SAN DIEGO–The City of San Diego announced it will reissue a Request for Proposals (RFP) to renovate and operate Presidio Hills Golf Course in Old Town.
The historic course has provided San Diegans young and old the opportunity to learn and enjoy the game of golf for more than 75 years.
The City’s goal is to select a proposal that demonstrates expertise in golf course operations and maintenance as well as the ability to conduct critically needed renovations to bring the facility up to modern specifications while preserving the historic elements residents cherish. The RFP is expected to be released June 2018. To keep the process fair, the City will not provide additional information regarding the golf course until the new RFP is issued.
The City originally released an RFP on June 30, 2017, but after careful review of all submissions, it was determined that no proposal adequately fulfilled the requirements to successfully operate the golf course. The City elected to develop a new RFP to identify more specific requirements for renovation and operation of the facility.
“The Presidio Hills Golf Course is an important local facility that hold many fond memories for the golfing public,” said Herman Parker, director of the City’s Parks and Recreation Department. “We are committed to finding a solution that addresses the important infrastructure needs for the golf course, honors its historic place in the community and puts it in a position to thrive for years to come.”
While the new RFP is being developed, the golf course will continue to be operated by the current lessee on a month to month basis. Upon release, the RFP will be available for review and response at the City’s Purchasing and Contracting website at www.sandiego.gov/purchasing/bids-contracts.
