Commission to vote on Harding Park course work

The scenic TPC Harding Park golf course is an approval away from getting its facilities back in tip-top shape.

City Recreation and Park commissioners are expected to vote today on awarding a $1.23 million construction contract to the lowest contract of five bidders, Continental Golf.

This landscape improvement project includes removing and replacing existing turf on the greens, surrounds and approaches and replacing bunker sand and liners at all 18 holes. The work, which will take 10 to 12 weeks to complete, is scheduled from Dec. 1 to April 1.

Last year, a relatively small project that included tee leveling, work on the putting greens, satellite controllers for irrigation and curtain drains along the cart paths was completed in a few weeks with a $120,000 price tag.

The golf course at Harding Road and Skyline Boulevard is city-owned, but the high-profile PGA Tour has managed the course and clubhouse for free since 2010.

Regardless, Rec and Park spokesman Elton Pon said, “This project will help ensure that Harding remains one of the nation’s top public courses and one of the world’s best golfing destinations for amateurs and pros alike.”

The golf course has hosted the San Francisco City Golf Championship, one of the oldest running amateur golf events in the country, and numerous professional golf tournaments since it opened in 1930.Bay Area NewsHarding ParkHarding Park golf courseneighborhoodsRecreation and Park Commission
