Detailed description

Harding Park Golf Course -Harding, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in San Francisco, California.

The Harding Park was opened on July 18, 1925. The course was named for U.S. President Warren G. Harding, an avid golfer, who died while visiting San Francisco two years earlier. This 163-acre par-72 course was designed by Willie Watson and Sam Whiting. Sam was the owner of the nearby golf course Olympic Club. Their design fee was $300.

Between 1959 and 1961, the course was rerouted a bit, to accommodate the Fleming Nine and then, in 2004, the layout was again remodeled, this time by PGA Tour architect Chris Gray. The result is a stunning revitalization of a true classic.  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.

Over the years, the courses' 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 characteristics that will challenge every golfer, from beginner to the most skilled player.

The Harding Park complex also includes an outstanding executive nine-hole course known as the Fleming Golf Course. The Fleming nine has been revitalized to the same discerning standards and conditioning as Harding's re-creation, albeit shorter in length yet full of strategy and interest. Fleming plays to a par of 30, with a total yardage for the nine holes ranging from 1865 yards from the forward tees to 2165 yards from the regular tees. The three par fours and six par threes are an excellent alternative to Harding's championship layout, providing a comfortable setting for the beginning or learning golfer.
