Navigating golf courses for PGA Tour events is often difficult, especially if you are a first timer going to the tournament. If you're heading out to the Dell Technologies Championship Labor Day weekend, consider watching from one of the 4 best places to view at TPC Boston.
The Front Nine
Hole 2 green and Hole 3 Tee box
The 2nd hole at TPC Boston is a reachable par 5 with a large pond protecting the green. Spectators will cheer if a player hits the green in two shots and boo if a player finds the water; making for an exciting hole. While waiting for players to clear the green on the 2nd hole, check out the tee shots on the long and difficult par 3, 3rd hole.
Hole 5 green, 6 tee and 7 green
Spotting up in this triangle will give you the opportunity to watch shots on three different holes. I will warn you, it is a bit of a walk to get out to these holes, but definitely worth the trek if you are looking for a great spot to watch a lot of golf. This is my favorite spot to watch the Dell Technologies Championship
The Back Nine
18th Hole Green
It is hard to argue that one of the best spots to watch any golf tournament is on the 18th green. The 18th at TPC Boston is another reachable par 5 with a demanding risk/reward carry over a marsh if players choose to go for the green in two. The green is severe and it's common to see players making bogies, but also a lot of birdies. If you are heading to the tournament on Labor Day you should get a spot in the bleachers early!
14th Tee Box, 15th Green, 16th Tee Box
Similar to the trio of holes on the front 9, these three are fairly close to one another and provides an easy way to see a number of shots. The viewing in this area is not as good as the front 9 trio, but the 16th hole par 3 is always fun to watch when players hit it over the water.
Hope this article helps you plan out your trip at the Dell Technologies Championship. If you are on-site at the tournament, send us a tweet (@nextgolfer) as our team plans to be out there watching on Sunday and Monday.
