SAN DIEGO (AP) The Navy plans to build a $25-million golf course on San Diego’s San Pablo Bayfront and open it to the public this fall.
The project is part of the Navy’s larger effort to modernize the Bayfront, which includes the installation of an outdoor amphitheater and an open-air pavilion.
The Navy says it plans to open the course in late 2019 and open the amphitheaters by 2022.
The San Pablo project is a part of an effort to improve the BayFront through community engagement and education.
The Naval Air Systems Command, which oversees the Bay, says the Navy will be using the new pavilion and amphitheatre to educate the public about climate change and to connect with local communities.
It also says it will provide recreational opportunities for sailors and visitors.
