As the 2023 PGA Championship winds toward its finish here at Oak Hill, it’s natural to wonder what’s next. Where are the future majors taking place? Or, more specifically, where is this championship going in the the next few years? 

The next major will be at Los Angeles Country Club, in one month, for the U.S. Open. Then, a month after that we’ll all travel to Liverpool for the 151st Open Championship at Royal Liverpool Golf Club. Somewhere in between those two destinations will be…all seven of the upcoming PGA Championship host courses. Well, at least six of the seven. We’ve listed them out below.

2024: Valhalla Golf Club — Louisville, Kentucky

The last time Rory McIlroy won a major championship, it came here at Valhalla. It was an epic championship nearly a decade ago, with Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler in the mix. This was also the site of Tiger Woods playoff victory over Bob May back in 2000. It’s a PGA of America favorite. 

2025: Quail Hollow Club — Charlotte, North Carolina 

Justin Thomas will love the 2024 host, Valhalla, near where he grew up in Kentucky. But he’ll also love the 2025 host, Quail Hollow, as it was where he won his first major championship back in 2017. Thomas also featured in the 2022 Presidents Cup victory by the United States just there last year. A handful of Tour pros call Quail Hollow home, notably Webb Simpson and Mackenzie Hughes.

2026: Aronimink Golf Club — Newtown Square, Pennsylvania

It was earlier this week that Aronimink earned a shoutout from Rory McIlroy. It’s more northern of a host than the others on this list, and hosting a PGA Championship in May could bring dicey weather. But that just shows the PGA of America’s trust level in this golf course. The last time it hosted the best men in the world, Keegan Bradley won the 2018 BMW Championship. 

2027: PGA Frisco — Frisco, Texas

Haven’t heard of this one? We won’t blame you. This course is bound to host more PGA Championships than just about any other course moving forward. The PGA of America has brought its headquarters to Frisco, Texas. Thus far, the reviews of the course are quite good.

2028: Olympic Club — San Francisco, California

This is the only course that might not fit neatly between LA Country Club and Royal Liverpool. But in terms of hosting men’s major championships, it’s got both of them beat. Olympic Club has hosted five U.S. Opens, most recently with Webb Simpson’s victory in 2012. Yuka Saso triumphed over Lexi Thompson on the slanted fairways of Olympic Club back at the 2021 U.S. Women’s Open. 

2029: Baltusrol Golf Club — Springfield, New Jersey

The last PGA Championship at Baltusrol was a slop-fest, with a water-logged course featuring lift, clean and place conditions. Well, that course has been completely retooled, thanks to Gil Hanse. We’ll get a sneak peek at the result of that restoration in just a couple weeks at this year’s KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. 

2030: Congressional Country Club — Bethesda, Maryland

The recent run of major championship courses should all feel like part of a trend. They’re all old clubs that have gotten a facelift in recent years. Often from Gil Hanse and Jim Wagner, or Andrew Green. The 2030 host in Congressional’s Blue course is no different. Green, the architect who restored Oak Hill, has done the same for Congressional. What can we tell you about it? That there’s seven years between now and when it’ll host a major. We’ll let the course settle a little bit. See you in 2030.
