Located in Los Angeles' famed Griffith Park, Harding Golf Course remains a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Opened in 1923 and designed by Willie Watson and George C. Thomas as well as William P. Bell and William H. Johnson, this is a shotmaker's course. With somewhat narrow fairways, plenty of mature trees, strategic bunkering and a few doglegs, shot selection and accuracy are the most important attributes for success. The par-72 course has four sets of tees, ranging from 4,946 yards to 6,714 yards. The front nine, which is a par 37, is more than 400 yards longer than the back. Two of the tougher holes on the course come early with the first being a 430-yard par 4 and the third, the no. 1 handicap hole. The third is just 405 yards, but it's a tight dogleg right with little room for error. Like its sister course, the Wilson at Harding Park, there is a driving range, short game area and practice green. The clubhouse at Harding Golf Course also has a golf shop, dining and locker rooms.
