“In a lot of ways, it’s golf in its purest form”: As Harding Park hosts its first professional major, Sean Martin of PGATOUR.com profiles the course and its place in the history of the San Francisco City Championship.
The San Francisco City Golf Championship, known affectionately to Bay Area golfers simply as The City, was first played in 1917 and has been played every year thereafter, making it one of the longest consecutively contested amateur tournaments in America.
The City is played at San Francisco’s historic TPC Harding Park and Lincoln Park golf courses. The Championship divisions play all rounds at Harding Park. Open Flights play at scenic Lincoln Park with semi-finalists advancing to Harding Park for the final weekend of the Championship.
