The par-72 Harding Park Golf Course is 6,845 yards from the championship tees. Harding Park’s layout follows the original routing as designed by architect Willie Watson in 1925. The course takes advantage of the property’s existing topography, contours and vegetation. The predominant features include the towering Monterey Cypress trees and the nearby presence of Lake Merced. However, Harding’s strategy and character have been substantially enhanced with the inclusion of several carefully placed bunkers and re-contoured green complexes. The addition of multiple teeing surfaces provides the course the flexibility to offer distinct playing challenges that will examine every golfer, from beginner to the most skilled player. Harding Park Golf Course was renovated extensively in 2001, leading to a PGA Tour commitment to host the 2005 World Golf Championships - American Express Championship.
