The staging of this week’s major at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, Calif., marks the fourth time a municipally-owned course will host the pros for a PGA Championship.

That means there’s now one more publicly accessible, major-championship course that recreational golfers can actually play. The best part? You can get a tee time at TPC Harding Park for under $100!

It turns out, there are plenty of other courses that have hosted major championships that can also be played for the bargain price. Check out the full list of major championship venues that you can play for less than $100 below.

Bethpage (Black), Farmingdale, N.Y.

The brawny, two-time U.S. Open host, and 2019 PGA Championship venue — is a smokin’ deal, but unfortunately, you have to be a New York state resident to enjoy a weekday rate of only $65. For out-of-staters, it’s $130.

Torrey Pines (South), La Jolla, Calif.

Like Bethpage, Torrey Pines, host of the 2008 U.S. Open, offers a sweet discount for its locals. San Diego city residents can snag a weekday tee time for $63, while everyone else must pay $202.

John Mummert

The Donald Ross Course at French Lick, French Link, Ind.

The 1924 PGA Championship host can be played for only $75 after 3 p.m. — and that includes a cart!

Seaview (Bay and Pines courses), Galloway, N.J.

The 1942 PGA Championship was played at what was then Seaview Country Club. Those holes now comprise the Bay and Pines courses, each of which can be played for various rates under $100.

Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort, Shawnee on Delaware, Penn.

During the PGA Championship’s matchplay heyday, Paul Runyan won at Shawnee. There are three nines on offer, and while a certain nine can’t be guaranteed at the time of booking, a weekday tee time is easily gettable for $75.

Tanglewood Park’s Championship course in Clemmons, N.C.

Tanglewood Park (Championship), Clemmons, N.C.

Weekday rates are only $49 at this 1974 PGA Championship venue, where Lee Trevino raised the trophy.

Prince’s Golf Club, Sandwich, England

The 1932 Open Championship was played at Prince’s, and you can tee it up there too! But to snag the ultra-reasonable rate of 50-60 GBP ($65.44-$78.53), you’ll have to play sometime between November and April.

Eisenhower Park (Red course), East Meadow, N.Y.

Though residents get a bit of a break on green fees at this 1926 PGA Championship venue, anyone can get a tee time here for between $42 and $70.

No. 12 at Keller Golf Course / David A. Parker

David A. Parker

Keller Golf Club, Maplewood, Minn.

Keller hosted two PGAs (1932 and 1954), and you can play a weekday round there for only $47.

Cedar Crest Golf Course, Dallas, Texas

Only $41 to play this 1927 PGA Championship venue? Sign us up!

Musselburgh Links, East Lothian, Scotland

Described as the oldest course in the world, Musselburgh hosted six Open Championships — all in the late 1800s (1874, 1877, 1880, 1883, 1886 and 1889), and you can play for only 16.50 GBP — that’s only $21.60!

TPC Harding Park, San Francisco, Calif.

In the weeks following this year’s PGA Championship, lucky residents of San Francisco can play TPC Harding Park for only $80! For the rest of us, it’s $200-$300.

*Note: Belmont Golf Course in Richmond, Va., hosted the 1949 PGA Championship and would appear on this list; however, the course closed on January 1, 2020, to undergo a comprehensive redesign and renovation. A reopening is planned for May 2021.

Jessica Marksbury

As a four-year member of Columbia’s inaugural class of female varsity golfers, Jessica can out-birdie everyone on the masthead. She can out-hustle them in the office, too, where she’s primarily responsible for producing both print and online features, and overseeing major special projects, such as GOLF’s inaugural Style Is­sue, which debuted in February 2018. Her origi­nal interview series, “A Round With,” debuted in November of 2015, and appeared in both in the magazine and in video form on
