The destruction of the Golden Gate Park Golf Course clubhouse in an early morning fire Monday meant more to Justin Moore, the course’s general manager, than losing a simple place to grab a hot dog after playing the 9-hole, par-3 course.
“I met my wife here and I proposed to my wife here,” said Moore, eyes filling with tears as he looked at the charred remains of the building. “It’s really a community center. It really showcased what this place is as far as strangers coming together, meeting like-minded people from all backgrounds. From hedge-fund managers to janitors, this place is a really great equalizer.”
A blaze was reported at 2:47 a.m. at 970 47th Ave.
