PGA Championship: Future Venues

The PGA of America has chosen the venues for the PGA Championship until 2034, taking in some of the great golf venues in the US such as Southern Hills, Oak Hill and Valhalla.

The 103rd edition in 2021 was held at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina. The PGA Championship had traditionally been held in August, the last of the four majors on the golf calendar. But that changed in 2019 when it was moved to May.

Here are the venues for the upcoming championships.

2022: Southern Hills Country Club, Oklahoma

Southern Hills has hosted seven men’s major championships, the US Open three times (1958, 1977, 2001) and four PGA Championships (1970, 1982, 1994, 2007). Tiger Woods won here in 2007. Nearly every hole bends left or right, while the rolling greens are protected by smartly placed bunkers. Famed designer Gil Hanse led a restoration of the course in 2019.

2023: Oak Hill Country Club, East Course, New York

The East Course at Oak Hill Country Club was renovated in 2020 by architect Andrew Green who wanted to return the course to its original Donald Ross design. His success has now been rewarded with a PGA Championship. Oak Hill has hosted three previous PGA Championships, the last in 2013 won by Jason Dufner.

2024: Valhalla Golf Club, Kentucky

The 106th PGA Championship will be the fourth major championship contested at Valhalla. Designed by Jack Nicklaus and opened in 1986, Valhalla is one of America’s greatest venues. Rory McIlroy won the PGA here in 2014 and Tiger Woods triumphed in 2000. Valhalla also hosted the Ryder Cup in 2008 when the US romped home to victory over Europe 16.5-11.5.

2025: Quail Hollow Club, North Carolina

One of the finest courses in southeastern America, this will be the second PGA Championship played at Quail Hollow, but the first to be played in May. In August 2017, 24-year-old Justin Thomas finished two shots clear of Francesco Molinari, Louis Oosthuizen and Patrick Reed to claim his first major.

2026: Aronimink Golf Club, Pennsylvania

Founded all the way back in 1896, Aronimink has hosted a number of big golf events during its storied history, including the 1962 PGA Championship won by Gary Player. Aronimink’s opening hole is one of the most memorable in golf. A par 4 at over 400 yards, it plunges down into a valley, then rises steeply, playing long and uphill to a well-guarded undulating green.

2027: PGA Frisco, Texas

In 2018, the PGA of America announced it will move its headquarters from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, to Frisco, Texas. This new venue will have two championship courses. Work is almost complete on the Gil Hanse-designed East course and Beau Welling’s West course and both are on schedule to open in June 2022. The East course will host the PGA in 2027.

2028: The Olympic Club, Lake Course, California

This will be the first time the PGA of America will stage any of its big events at The Olympic Club, which has however hosted more than 10 USGA events, including five US Opens, on its famed Lake Course. The Lake will also host the 2032 Ryder Cup, the first time that event will be held on the west coast since 1959.

2029: Baltusrol Golf Club, Lower Course, New Jersey

The 2029 PGA Championship will be staged on Baltusrol’s famed Lower Course, which is an A.W. Tillinghast design. Since opening in 1922, the Lower Course has hosted 10 big golf events, including seven majors. This will be Baltusrol’s third PGA Championship: Phil Mickelson and Jimmy Walker notched memorable one-shot victories on the Lower Course in 2005 and 2016, respectively.

2031: Congressional Country Club, Maryland

The Club’s championship Blue Course has already hosted three US Opens and a PGA Championship. Extensively renovated by Andrew Green in 2020-21, the Blue Course is also due to host the 2037 Ryder Cup.
