Oak Hill lined up for 2023 PGA Championship

Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York, will host golf’s 2023 PGA Championship, the PGA of America has announced.

It will be the fourth time that the course has staged the event, and the first time since 2013, when Jason Dufner emerged triumphant. Oak Hill also hosted the tournament in 1980 and 2003 and the 1995 Ryder Cup contest between the US and Europe.

“Oak Hill's membership and the Rochester community have always embraced major championships,” PGA of America president Derek Sprague said. “Their enthusiasm for the game and collective spirit of hospitality is recognized in golf circles worldwide as something to behold.”

Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is the only other course to have staged four PGA Championships. The 2015 tournament took place at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, where Australian Jason Day captured his first major title.

Baltusrol in New Jersey will stage next year’s edition, before Quail Hollow in North Carolina in 2017, Bellerive in Missouri in 2018, Bethpage Black in New York in 2019, TPC Harding Park in San Francisco in 2020, Kiawah Island in South Carolina in 2021, and Trump National in New Jersey in 2022.
