Fried Egg Golf is excited to return to Lake Merced Golf Club for the second time in 2024. Gil Hanse’s renovation in 2022 brought back MacKenzie flair and a year of maturing has yielded supreme conditions. Get away in the doldrums of winter for a few days in San Francisco. The Karl is named after the fog that often lingers around the Lake Merced area. Locals call the fog “Karl“.
Date: Monday, March 11
Location: Lake Merced Golf Club – Daly City, California
Registration status: OPEN
Our event will be a 36-hole two-person team event with each pair playing one round of best ball and one round of alternate shot.
