PGA Tour 20132013 Fry’ Open

Corde Valle Golf Course in San Martin, CA

Yesterday the backside of Corde Valle Golf Course was a frenzy of workers setting up tents, lining up golf carts, piling up road markers, and temporary barricades. All of this activity can only mean one thing: the Open is just around the corner. In fact the PGA tournament at Corde Valle Golf Course begins this week on October 7th and runs through October 13th, 2013.


The players this year include International Presidents Cup team members Angel Cabrera of Argentina, Marc Leishman of Australia and Hideki Matsuyama of Japan. “2012 British Open champion Ernie Els Cabrera won the 2007 U.S. Open at Oakmont and the 2009 Masters. Leishman won PGA TOUR Rookie of the year honors in 2009 and The Travelers Championship in Hartford in 2012. He was fourth in The Masters this year,” according to a Fry’s press release.

For visitors wishing to watch the games, there are many viewing options available and tickets are now on sale at the Open website.  Of course if you really want to go in style, nothing can beat the elite viewing from one of the skyboxes set up on the seventeenth and eighteenth holes.

One of the main considerations for those wishing to visit the area during the PGA tour is parking. The 2013 Open offers free, convenient parking. Parking locations and directions will be listed on the website. Here is the shuttle schedule for all of you driving in every day.

The shuttles run on the following schedules for Fry’s Open:

  • Wednesday October 9th through Friday October 11 the shuttles run from 5:00 am to 7:00 pm
  • Saturday October 13th to Sunday October 13 the shuttle runs from 6:00 am to 7:00 pm
