William Fay earned his DDS at the University of Detroit School of Dentistry in 1971. Now an orthodontist in Northern California, William Fay, DDS, belongs to the Olympic Club of San Francisco.

Established in 1860, the Olympic Club of San Francisco has more than 5,000 active members and is a focal point of amateur sports in the Bay Area. It has hosted a range of amateur and professional sports events, including the U.S. Open professional golf tournament five times.

The club is home to two 18-hole golf courses, known as the Lake and Ocean courses. Designed in 1924 by course superintendent Sam Whiting, the courses have undergone a number of renovations over the years and were redesigned by professional golf course architect Robert Trent Jones to add a degree of difficulty in preparation for the U.S. Open in 1955. More recently, the Olympic Club replaced the poa annua grass on the greens and put in bent-grass greens.

San Francisco Sunday Streets: Connecting the Community for 8 Years

William Fay, DDS, has resided in San Francisco for several years, operating out of his private practices in American Canyon and South San Francisco since 1971. The former vice president of the San Francisco Planning Commission, William Fay, DDS, played an integral role in guiding the development of the local community in recent years.

Inspired by the “Ciclovía” event in Bogotá, Columbia, which originated in 1976, the San Francisco Planning Commission adopted the open-street style event in 2008, dubbing it Sunday Streets. Since then, residents throughout the city have been encouraged to bike, walk, skate, and enjoy the best that the city has to offer in a safe, traffic-free environment in several communities throughout the year. In late August 2014, the 50th Sunday Streets event was celebrated in Mission, connecting thousands of participants to events such as yoga, free massages, live entertainment, and more. Earlier this year, the event spread throughout the Embarcadero, Tenderloin, and Bayview/Dogpatch communities, providing residents with free, healthy activities designed to foster communal awareness and respect.
