The Lucky International Open was a PGA Tour event that was played in the 1960s at Harding Park Golf Club, a public course in San Francisco across Lake Merced from the more glamorous Olympic Club. One of the founders and sponsors of the Lucky International Open was Eugene Selvage, owner of the Lucky Lager Brewing Company. San Francisco native and long-time veteran, Ken Venturi, would win his 14th and last PGA Tour event here in 1966.[1] The deteriorating conditions and antiquated facilities at Harding Park caused the PGA Tour to leave at the end of the decade.
