Abstract/Contents:Discusses the importance of tourism and conventions to San Diego as well as the wildfires in the fall of 2003, suggesting that "the members of the San Diego GCSA...are eager to show the industry that the wildfires did little to slow San Diego's lively golf scene." Briefly profiles Kevin Kienast, president of the San Diego GCSA. Describes the effect that the wildfires had on golf course, including "several golf courses...[being] closed for two or three days due to the intensity of the smoke...Barona Creek Golf Club had several acres of native grasses and shrubs scorched." Suggests "that a golf course that came into contact with the fires definitely helped in stopping or slowing down the spread of the fires...I think most people saw that the golf courses in the path of the fires were beneficial in reducing property loss." Explains that "with the addition of 15-20 quality golf courses in the past 10 years, San Diego has truly become a golf destination." Includes Kienast's recommendations about "must-stop places to visit in San Diego."
