Coronado Men’s Golf Club’s Charter President

RADM Leon “Savvy” Huffman is the namesake of the CMGC November golf tournament.

The tournament was established in 1959 by Admiral Leon Huffman and Admiral Maxwell Leslie (the namesake of our March tournament) as the doubles tournament now called The Savvy Huffman tournament.

Savvy was a graduate of the US Naval Academy class of 1922. His first warship command was in 1937 with the submarine USS Pickerel (SS-177).

In the early days of World War Two, he served aboard the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga (CV-3)

During the Guadalcanal campaign of 1942, Admiral Huffman later commanded the battleship USS New Jersey (BB-62) before being named Commander, Submarine Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet (COMSUBPAC) in 1955. 

Rear Admiral Huffman retired from the Navy in 1958 after a long distinguished 36-year career serving our country.  He then devoted his time and efforts to serving his community of Coronado where he’d resided dating back to 1941.

Members of the Coronado Golf Club –

We are looking forward to seeing you all again at the Farmers Insurance Open!! As you know, the golf tournament is one of the big civic events in San Diego each year. This year, we have another great civic event happening in the Breeders’ Cup taking place at the Del Mar Racetrack. They are in the need of some support, and, as San Diego’s most impactful annual event, we want to also support another great event.

The Breeders’ Cup, horse-racing’s “Super Bowl,” is coming to back to Del Mar in early November, and they need volunteer drivers to drive VIPs between select hotels, the Del Mar racetrack, and various other designated venues. Vehicles (large SUVs) will be provided, and drivers are needed for approximately 5 hour shifts from November 1 through November 6. 

The Breeder’s Cup has teamed up with the Farmers Insurance Open and here’s the GREAT news – for every shift you work, you will get a ticket to the Farmers Insurance Open!  Drive two shifts, get two tickets.  Have a few friends who want to do a shift together?  You will each get a ticket and can go to the Farmers Insurance Open together.

The Breeders’ Cup is a huge event for San Diego and a great economic driver for our city.  You will be doing a great civic duty while you earn Farmers Insurance Open tickets!  As well, for every shift you drive a donation will be made to the ASYMCA, a local charity benefitting various Military causes in our community. 

It’s simple – sign up here and provide:

·      A copy of your full driver’s license showing all information on it.

·      A copy of your COVID-19 vaccination card (you must be fully vaccinated by 15 OCT 2021).

·      A signed copy of your completed “Breeders’ Cup Safe Driver Form” (request from

You may email those documents within three business days of signing up to volunteer to or fax them to 619-532-6824.

Please contact one of our fellow members, Tim Young ( if you have any questions, or simply sign up at the link above and send in the documents.   Have fun and thanks in advance for your support for San Diego and the Century Club of San Diego!

Golf Course Ponds Update

September 13th, 2021 posted by palbitz

(From the City of Coronado Recreation and Golf Services)

The scope of the ponds project was to clean out debris from the pond basins and to troubleshoot and repair the well system that fills the ponds with water. The emptying the ponds was accomplished through a team effort including several departments within the city organization. Once the ponds had been emptied, a contractor moved in and cleaned out the debris from within the basins. Hundreds of yards of material were removed and hauled to a disposal area.

The water for the ponds comes from a well near #9 tee. Over the last three years the production of water from our well had dwindled to almost nothing. Golf staff hired a contractor to video the well in order to investigate the source of the problem. We found that over the years, the screens in the well had completely sealed up with salt. This was not surprising as the water from the well is highly sodic (basically sea water). Our team decided to perform rehabilitation work to the well to restore water production for filling and maintaining the water level in the ponds by cleaning the screens in the well. The screens are what allows the ground water to pass into the well hole.  A contractor was hired and began work in August of this year. Unfortunately, as the contractor was working, the well collapsed. At that point staff investigated the problem by shooting another video of the well and found that approximately one half of the well had indeed collapsed. We are not able to save the well in its current state. Staff is now researching options for a reliable, affordable and ethical source of water for the ponds.

The City is committed to finding a solution and will keep you updated as the project develops.

Please accept our humble apologies for any inconveniences the project has caused.
