When golf fans watch The Masters on TV, most of them can only dream of playing Augusta National. Most major championship courses, in fact, are closed off to the public. That’s not the case for the 2020 PGA Championship course.
TPC Harding Park in San Fransisco, Calif. will play host to the first major of the season, but it’s not much different than your local municipal course. You can actually play the 2020 PGA Championship venue for less than $100
TPC Harding Park will play host to the 2020 PGA Championship
At long last, the first major of the 2020 PGA Tour season is finally here. The golf world has been starved of major championship golf for nearly a full calendar year, but the best in the world will gather in San Fransisco for the 102nd PGA Championship this Thursday.
The site of the year’s first major will be TPC Harding Park, a peculiar stranger on the PGA Tour circuit. The course hasn’t hosted a Tour event since 2015 when Rory McIlroy won the WGC-Match Play in the Bay Area. TPC Harding Park also hosted the Presidents Cup in 2009. It was even the site of Tiger Woods’ most famed club twirl of his career.
Other than the WGC event and the Presidents Cup, though, TPC Harding Park has been a ghost on the PGA Tour for the last decade. But regular Joe’s have been playing the track for years.
TPC Harding Park is a municipal golf course open to the public
When you hear municipal golf course, you think bumpy greens, brown spots, and rocky bunkers. That’s not the case at TPC Harding Park.
The 2020 PGA Championship venue is one of the highest rated public courses in the entire country. Pebble Beach, Torrey Pines, and Bethpage Black are a few of the most popular munis in America, but TPC Harding Park is right up there with the best.
TPC Harding Park is a par-72 course for amateurs. It measures 7,169 yards from the tips, which makes it a tough, but fair test to the everyday golfer. It’s not just a beautiful public track, either. It’s extremely affordable, and you can play it all year round.
You can play TPC Harding Park for as little as $80
Have you ever wanted to tee it up where Tiger Woods and Brooks Koepka have stood? Well, you can fairly easily at TPC Harding Park, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
Anyone can play TPC Harding Park for as low as $8o during twilight. Prices on weekdays range from $80-$300. Weekends can run a bit more pricey, with the lowest prices standing at $97.
Still, a weekend time at a major championship course for under $100? You won’t find a much better deal than that in America. Pebble Beach is normally a $500 price tag, but you can drive up the coast to TPC Harding Park and pay far less for an exceptional course.
And you can book a tee time as soon as Aug. 11, just two days after the PGA Championship will conclude.
