PGA Championship Returning to Oak Hill Country Club

September 9, 2015

The PGA Championship is headed back to upstate New York. In 2023, the year’s final major will return to the East Course at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York, a decade after the club hosted the 2013 PGA Championship.

Reports surfaced of the decision in the middle of August, but were confirmed by the PGA of America on Tuesday afternoon.

It will be the fourth PGA held at Oak Hill, adding to decades of major golf played at the Donald Ross course. Jason Dufner topped Jim Furyk for the title back in 2013, and Shaun Micheel won his major there in 2003. Jack Nicklaus won the first PGA Championship held there back in 1980, his 17th major at the time.

When it comes to big-time events, the course has a storied history. It has hosted the U.S. Open three times, plus two U.S. Amateur Championships, and held the 1995 Ryder Cup that saw the European Ryder Cup team, captained by Bernard Gallacher, beat Lanny Wadkins’ American squad.
