The yacht harbor itself was constructed specifically for the 1915 Panama Pacific Exposition, but was later given over to municipal control. The lighthouse appears to have been constructed sometime between 1927 and 1931, based on period photos of the place. (I found a photo of the lighthouse under construction in 1931.)

Noted San Francisco architect Willis Polk built the St. Francis Yacht Club right next door in 1927… could it be that he designed the lighthouse as well?
