Golf: Aronimink to host 2020 Women's PGA, 2027 PGA Championship
(Reuters) - Aronimink Golf Club in Pennsylvania will host the 2027 PGA Championship and the Women's PGA Championship in 2020, the PGA of America said on Tuesday.
Located in the western Philadelphia suburb of Newtown Square and designed by Donald Ross in 1926, Aronimink hosted the 1962 PGA Championship won by Gary Player and will be the venue for the PGA Tour's BMW Championship next September.
"The PGA of America is thrilled to return major championship golf to Aronimink Golf Club,” PGA of America President Paul Levy said in a news release.
“We’re certain that the best players in the world -- both men and women -- will be pleased, and, when the time comes, sufficiently challenged by one of America’s special layouts.”
The PGA Championship, one of the four men's majors, will move to May in 2019 from its traditional August date. The 2018 event will be held at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis, followed by New York's Bethpage Black in 2019.
The 2018 Women's PGA Championship will be staged at Kemper Lakes in suburban Chicago before moving to Hazeltine National outside Minneapolis in 2019.
