Great course

Greens roll true and overall course is in great shape. Sand is relatively thin but playable and can easily score on this course. My only recommendation would be to remove the entire practice range or to a different area because it takes away from part of the beauty of the course.

One of the best

This is a course you must play at least once. Among the many courses in the Bay Area, the layout and quality of this course are premium. The fare is high. So be careful when you book the T time.

Great round of golf

Harding Park is absolutely a great round of golf and a must play. I play there 2/3 times a year and it is always a marvelous experience. I walk my round which is an extra benefit. It is like a 4.5 hour walk in a beautiful park. Staff is great and the bar and restaurant is super.

My expectation was high

This course is for 2020 PGA championship open. The course is simple and easy. Layout is not fun. Not much management required. Hit far and straight. Green is slow. This course seems one of your neighborhood course or county course. GolfNow deal would be the best to play. Still pay for a cart of $25. Not worthy to pay almost $200 as a non resident. My GHIN is 14.9. But anyway honored to play at 2020 PGA championship course.

Used cart

Cart Path Only??

I love Harding. The layout is awesome, the challenge varies depending on the weather or any upcoming tournaments, and the scenery is beautiful. But cartpath only golf is slower than just mandatory walking. Not a fan of cartpath only at all. If you're playing with a partner who's a bit up there in years, has a bad back, etc.. It makes the round pretty tedious.

Harding Park always lives up

Every time I finish a round at Harding Park I have the same recurring thoughts- the course layout is so great, pace of play is a disaster, the staff is always so helpful, and would people PLEASE FIX YOUR PITCH MARKS on the green. That being sad, if you are from out of town, and want a great experience...PLAY HARDING PARK!!!

Great - Prepping for 2020 PGA Championship

This course should be walked, not ridden. You will regret renting a cart.

The course was in great shape. Unfortunately the winds were 25-35 mph and the greens had just been punched. So, from a pure golf standpoint it was very hard.

The rough is lush and long. In two weeks you will have difficulty finding your ball. In a month you will not find your ball.

The fairways are being narrowed (20 yds max), so accuracy is a premium over length.

If you want a real challenge, in a month when the greens are back you will have one of the most difficult rounds of your life.

Great Course - Great Day

The experience playing TPC Harding Park could not have been better. The course is challenging, but not unfair and not impossible. It was in great shape considering the amount of public play they get. The greens were especially nice; consistent and true. The pace of play was great, again considering the amount of public play. We played the round in around 4 hours and 30 minutes, which seemed very reasonable given the fact that their tee sheet was full. I got a GolfNow hot deal for $79 and that was really a great value. One of my playing partners is a local, and he said that he pays $61 as a resident. The other two players were in town on business and said that they paid $200 each; not sure on that one. They did charge me $14 for a pull cart rental, which is a bit pricey. It's an easy walking course, with or without a pull cart. Just a beautiful venue, a wonderful design, and a delightful day.

Poor management and slow play ruined the day

When I played the course the year after the President’s Cup, I loved it. This year’s experience was a 180 turnabout.
1. Driving range and chipping green closed for over a month? Seems to me that for the price you gouge visitors you could get them repaired easily and quickly.
2. My group arrived one hour prior to tee time. We asked if we could go off earlier. Told repeatedly “NO”! Group immediately in front failed to show and instead of moving us up, they put a twosome (walking) THAT WERE SAN FRANCISCO LOCALS in front. That DELAYED our tee time further. A 3 HOUR front nine WITHOUT A MARSHALL was agonizing. Fortunately, the guy who played fron the tips and NEVER could hit the fairway or a GIR quit after 9. That left us behind a tweener and her mother.
3. Realizing we might not make 18 before carts were due, I called ProShop to complain about slow play. They told me that college teams were IN FRONT of us for PRACTICE rounds. We saw how they practiced - chipping practice repeatedly around the greens despite groups WAITING in the fairways for them to leave.
4. Cart path only even though the fairways were dry. That slowed things down even more. $25 charged for a shared cart? In addition to a $135 twilight tee fee? Ridiculous!

I enjoyed the Presidio much more and at least they had marshalls to move slower groups along. Will NOT be back!

Very disappointed

I loved playing this course ten years ago but this time was totally appalling. This is not the quality I would expect from a “TPC” course.
1. Winds had bent the metal polls supporting driving range nets LAST month - closing the range. The chipping green was “closed” likewise. Seems to me that a “TPC” course would rapidly fix the damage so players could warm up prior to their rounds. Profits must trump convenience I guess.
2. Our group of four showed an hour before our tee time. Despite the lack of practice facilities, we were told several times we could not move up our tee time. When our tee time came up, two people who were LOCAL walk-ons were allowed to SUBSTITUTE for the group slated for the time before us (no show). That pushed our tee time BACK. Since when does a two-some take priority over a foursome? Oh, that’s right, locals take priority over out-of-town guests.
3. THREE HOURS for the first 9 holes is ridiculous. College teams taking practice rounds coupled with the LACK of a course marshall slowed everything to a crawl. Hit and wait became the theme. The apathy for our plight was evident several times when I called the pro-shop to ask why - they have your money ($110 “twilight” + $23 for cart fee to play cart path only golf).
4. GPS system spent half the time with advertisements and was difficult to return to screen.
5. SEVERAL times our cart died WHILE ON CART PATH because of “entering restricted area” . We had to back up and try the SAME route again to move forward.
6. My friend had rented right hand clubs but they gave him a LEFT HANDED 9 IRON. They then looked at him with a smug look when he asked to have it replaced at the turn.

This was anything BUT the quality expected for a “TPC” course. Poor management Is unacceptable for the prices paid. If you do not live in the area, I urge you to spend your hard earned money elsewhere - a five hour round does not allow you to get into any rhythm and despite the beauty of the course, you will be extremely disappointed with the round.

Excellent choice

Beautiful course that drains exceptionally well. Zero muddy areas and lovely views all around. Only negatives were the rude starter & unusually high cart fees. $50 is much too high for a cartpath only course. Definitely worth playing ( w out the cart!).

Driving Range has no hitting areas!

The course is in fairly good shape. The driving range has not been repaired since high winds blew it down many months ago. They hung up a net about 20 yards in front of stalls. There are no hitting areas and they have had several months to repair the poles and nets. When I was in the practice area a ball almost struck me from a golfer hitting the poles that hold up the nets in front of the range. This is unacceptable and the range should be fully repaired.
