PGA Championship to return to Southern Hills

The PGA of America has announced that it will host two major championships at Southern Hills Country Club, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, between now and 2030.

Having not staged the event since 2007, Southern Hills will be the venue for a PGA Championship no later than 2030. The earliest available date is 2024, with the major already lined up for Quail Hollow Club, Charlotte, North Carolina; Bellerive Country Club, St. Louis, Missouri; Bethpage Black, Farmingdale, New York; TPC Harding Park, San Francisco, California; The Ocean Course, Kiawah Island (South Carolina) Golf Resort; Trump International Golf Club, Bedminster, New Jersey and Oak Hill Country Club, Pittsford, New York over the next seven years.

This will be a record fifth time that Southern Hills has staged the PGA Championship, one of golf’s four men’s major championships. Tiger Woods emerged triumphant in 2007, the last time the tournament was hosted at the course.

Meanwhile, Southern Hills will host the 2021 Senior PGA Championship – the most historic and prestigious major championship in senior golf.

“Few American golf venues match the legacy and record of excellence of Southern Hills Country Club,” PGA of America president Paul Levy said. “Some of our sport’s greatest names have walked these fairways and etched their name in major championship history. We are confident Southern Hills will continue to attract respective world-class fields for both the PGA Championship and the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship.”
