Aronimink awarded women’s and men’s PGA Championships
Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania will host the 2020 Women’s PGA Championship and the men’s 2027 PGA Championship, the Professional Golf Association of America has announced.
The course becomes the first venue to stage each of the PGA of America’s major championships: the PGA Championship; the Senior PGA Championship; and Women’s PGA Championship.
It will be the first time that the course has hosted the women’s event, while the men’s major returns to Aronimink for the first time since 1962.
Paul Levy, president of the PGA of America, said: “The PGA of America is thrilled to return major championship golf to Aronimink Golf Club. 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. We’re excited to twice celebrate golf and to plug into the enthusiasm for sport that Philadelphia is famous for.”
Next year’s PGA Championship is being staged at the Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis, Missouri, with the women’s event is taking place at the Kemper Lakes Golf Club in Kildeer, Illinois.
