THE GOLF COURSE
– TPC Harding Park, San Francisco
TPC Harding Park was renovated in 2005 in order for it to better suit PGA TOUR events, making this a great course for the Championship. The now-improved Harding Park Course features graceful, rippling fairways and soft bunkers, with each hole being framed by large, cypress trees. The Course will play at par-70 and stretches to 7,251 yards, with 12 par-4s.
“I never played Harding Park before… But I really, as soon as I played the course, I liked it. It’s a fair test of golf. You get rewarded for good shots. It suited my eye. I like big trees that frame holes and you’ve got a lot of definition to work the ball off stuff. I really enjoyed the golf course this week and enjoyed it as a whole.”
We cannot wait to see the Championship being played here, and it will be a hard one for the golfers, as you have to be extremely precise when playing this course!
