Northern California’s Busy 2015 Golf Schedule Off to a Roaring Start
February 16, 2015
Great weather, great venues and great golf.
What could be the recipe for a perfect tournament was on full display at last week’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Not surprisingly, as a result the event saw record numbers in attendance.
The good news for golf fans in Northern California? The AT&T Pro-Am was just the start of what ought to be a memorable 2015 golf season in Northern California.
Looking ahead, in just less than two months it’ll be the women’s turn as the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic returns to Lake Merced Golf Club (April 20-26), bringing with it the likes of Michelle Wie, Paula Creamer and defending champion Lydia Ko.
A mere three days after the women leave the Bay Area, the PGA Tour’s best will return with the WGC- Cadillac Match Play Championship, which will tee off April 29-May 3 at TPC Harding Park.
To make things even more enticing for fans, there’ll also be the option of watching some of the best amateurs in nation (and on the planet for that matter) with the playing of the inaugural U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship at The Olympic Club. The U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship will be held May 2-6, meaning that for two days both the WGC-Cadillac Match Play and U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship will overlap.
You want to really be a super fan? The distance between TPC Harding Park and the Olympic Club is a just a mere 1.6 miles. Double-dipping doesn’t get much easier.
Then, there’s of course the U.S. Senior Open, which will tee off June 22-28 at Del Paso Country Club in Sacramento. You want good weather? The average temperature in Sacramento in June hovers around 90 degrees.
For golf fans, Northern California is the place to be in 2015.
