Born in Tuam Co. Galway on December 29, 1900

In recognition of Michael "Mac" McDonagh for his 32 years of service as Superintendent of Golf for the City of Sacramento from 1932 - 1964. Mac McDonagh went to England in 1923 to become an apprentice in golf course construction and design with Dr. Alister MacKenzie. In 1926, McDonagh came to California and joined Dr. MacKenzie in the building of such fine golf courses as Cypress Point, The Meadow Club, and our very own Sacramento Municipal Golf Course - now officially known as the Alister MacKenzie G.C. at Haggin Oaks. Mac McDonagh is also credited with the design and construction of the City's Arcade Creek G.C. at Haggin Oaks and Bing Maloney 18-Hole G.C.

"Mac was a man who lived his dream
in the wearing and walking of the green"
