TPC Harding Park History

The PGA Championship will be the first major of the season and will be held at the historic TPC Harding Park on the outskirts of San Fransisco. The golf course wraps around Lake Merced and is located just a few miles from the Californian coast that borders the Pacific Ocean.

Swirling winds and rain are a frequent occurrence at TPC Harding Park, which was named after the 29th President of the United States of America, Warren G. Harding, who passed away two years prior to the golf course being founded in San Fransisco, California on his way back from a trip to Alaska.
