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.

Thanks to Ed Pietrzak and Bill Thiele for their Contributions!
