The pedestrian path in was also the automobile road in. Despite this being a municipally owned golf course, it was not pedestrian friendly. Highway access was along this Harding Road in, just off of Skyline Boulevard (behind).

The golf course was filled with tall, mature cypress trees. This made for a very scenic drive in.

Two golfers played just beyond the trees. The cart path was evident with the cart at the left edge of the image. The size of the golfers demonstrated the massive width of the trees.

The driving range was just off the parking lot. A tall fenced area within which there were no trees.

The Parking Lot
(9 of 15) (5402 views)

The parking lot was large enough for many cars. The lot widened such that all parking was resonably equal distance from the club house. The nearest bus stop was over 1/2 mile away.

The parking lot as viewed from the front of the club house. Notice that the only young trees on this course were in the parking lot. Perhaps they were added for last year's Presidents Cup match.

Putting Green
(13 of 15) (6054 views)

Harding_Park_Golf_Course_20100328_125140_3655BCX.jpg

A putting green was just behind the club house. The sign read:

No Chipping

Chipping a ball means to give it a little extra loft by striking it low (close to the grass). A missjudged chipping shot can injure grass.
