HOW TO QUALIFY FOR A RESIDENT CARD – REQUIRED DOCUMENTATION

To qualify as a San Francisco or Pacifica resident, applicants must provide the following documents:

  1. Government-issued Photo ID:  For example valid, California State Driver’s License (“CDL”), California State Identification Card (“CID”), or other government-issued photo ID (ex: passport) – AND;
  2. Proof of Residency: You must also provide supporting documents evidencing proof of residency no older than 90 days.  Examples include:
    • Utility Bill (must have your name on it)
    • Property Tax Statement (must have your full legal name on it)
    • Bank Account Statement (must have your name on it)
    • Other type of recurring commercial bill received within the past 90 days (must have your name on it)

NOTE: If the above Government Issued Photo ID and Proof of Residency list the same address you are done.

However, if you are supplying a Government-issued Photo ID with an address that does not match your proof of residency or if you are supplying a government-issued Photo ID that does not list an address (i.e. passport) – you must submit two (2) Proof of Residency documents as described in item #2 above.  The two (2) Proof of Residency documents must have the same address.

PACIFICA RESIDENTS – To qualify as a Pacifica resident, applicants must present the same required documentation as stated above evidencing a Pacifica address. Please note Pacifica resident cards are valid for discounted golf fees at Sharp Park only.

SAN FRANCISCO PROPERTY OWNERS – If you are the legal owner of property within the City and County of San Francisco and pay taxes on that property, and your name is printed on the deed or the property tax receipt, you will qualify as a San Francisco Resident and may receive a card, even though you may reside outside the City limits. You will need to supply proof of ownership (i.e. property tax receipt, copy of deed – that includes your name) along with the applicable required government issued photo ID described above. This policy also applies to Pacifica property owners who live outside the City of Pacifica for cards to be used only at Sharp Park Golf Course.
