The most fun course at The Concession might be one the pros aren’t playing

Jack Nicklaus and Tony Jacklin are forever joined in history by “The Concession,” Nicklaus’s famously sporting gesture to his singles-match opponent at the 1969 Ryder Cup. But the two golfers are also connected by their co-design work at The Concession Golf Club, in Bradenton, Fla., a property that has received far less attention than the two-foot conceded putt for which the club is named.

Since it opened in 2006, the private club has remained largely out of the spotlight. That’s changing this week.

With the World Golf Championships-Workday Championship at The Concession kicking off Thursday, golf fans got their first televised look at one of Florida’s most challenging tracks, a 7,500-yard-plus, water-laden course with slick, contoured greens that evoke the putting surfaces at Augusta National.
