Nice time at TPC Harding Park

A friend and I thought we should get this one in before the PGA gets a hold of it for the pros. The fairways are already shaped at about 35 yards wide and the ruff is thick enough to walk over your ball and miss it completely. We played with a twosome father and son and they gave us great course knowledge and it help us a lot as we navigated our way through the front nine and then the prettier back nine.

I finally got.my swing in order by the 9th hole and started to have a fun from the 10th onward. The 16th, 17th, and 18th were a blast and offered a great photo opportunity. I pared the 18th with a nice drive just past the crest, and a beautiful iron shot onto the green 8 feet away from the pin. I think we’re going to come again and try and play the course after the tournament to see how we score.

It's all in the name

Course is fairly ho hum. There weren't many memorable holes although 14 was a nice layout and good looking hole.

Course was playing tough with narrow fairways, 20 yards across, and relatively heavy rough, say 4-5 inches. Tough to play after a day of rain.

Fairways and rough were lush and soggy. Greens were slow and pretty rough as it looks like players don't repair their ballmarks.

Play here is you want to watch on TV and say I remember that hole. I would only play here with a resident discount.

It is a nice course, but fairly unremarkable.

Tough track!

Played on a typical December day in San Francisco - temperature was in the high 50’s, overcast and a slight breeze. It did not rain while we played, but it had been raining most of the week prior, so the course was still very wet. They are definitely gearing up for the PGA Championship with extra long rough and super tight fairways, and the greens were even quicker than usual. Overall, the course was very challenging given the conditions, but it was a fun time and would do it again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful back drops

Excellent course with friendly staff. Not as challenging as expected other than dealing with the roughs. Fairways and greens are in great condition. Definitely worth the price without a doubt. Will be back for the 2020 PGA Champions.

Sunset

I would recommend that you do away with teetimes after 330 because it gets way too dark to complete play...
if you are going to continue to offer a 330 teatime or later then discount the price because we were only able to complete 12 holes and we were only a twosome walking.

First Time Experience

Have wanted to play this course for some time. The course lived up to my expectations. The fairways had a few brown spots, but overall the course was in great shape. The greens were fast and vin great shape. The pace of play was very good, we didn't have to wait more than a few minutes on a few holes. Diffinetly looking forward to playing agin. Only downer was that the cart fees are the highest I've seen and the cost for my wife to ride along with me was $50.

Spectacular Day for Golf

My first time playing here and it was a great day! They are obviously prepping for the PGA and narrowing the fairways and the conditions were average at best but I had a fantastic time! The layout and the views were great, staff were friendly and the pace of play was excellent. I walked and was very happy to do so, very easy for anyone to do it.

Terrible Service

Besides the “TPC” name this course has nothing going for it. Staff was rude. Course was not great, I am avid golfer and there many lower price courses that are better. This was for my buddy’s birthday golf outing. Started out with a rude club house associate. OK course but not worth the money. DO NOT PLAY HERE if you are expecting a true TPC caliber course.

Too expensive and not worth it

The rate is there already, higher than most other public course. This is okay. But, the pull cart costs $14, and e-cart costs $25. Way too much comparing to other courses. For dining, it is okay for the food is a little more expensive than most other restaurants, and tips of more than 18% are already put in the bill. But how come the tax is on top of that? Shall I pay tax for tipping? More ridiculously, they still ask you for tips (this time it is after tax) before you signature. Obviously they want to be double tipped. Greedy. Greedy. Greedy.

Aeration

The course (greens and fairway) was aerated few days ago. The wind also created lot of tree debris on the greens. Needless to say, I had much better conditions at Harding in the past. Today was an exception. I recommend waiting until early September to get your money’s worth.
