It’s down to 2025 or 2030 for PGA Championship at Southern Hills

Tuesday’s blockbuster announcement that the PGA of America is moving its headquarters to Frisco, Texas, and has already awarded the new site the PGA Championship in 2027 and 3034 could have an impact on when the fifth PGA Championship is held at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa

The PGA had previously announced that the 2027 PGA Championship would be held at Aronimink Golf Club in Newton Square, Pa., but confirmed Tuesday that Aronimink will now host the championship in 2026.

That leaves 2025 and 2030 as the two dates without a confirmed site in the window of when the PGA contracted that it will have the championship at Southern Hills (2025 to 2030). There has been no official announcement yet about either date. Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C., which hosted the championship in 2017, is thought to be in the mix for 2025 along with Southern Hills.

Southern Hills has previously hosted the PGA Championship in 1970, 1982, 1994 and 2007.

The proximity of the new headquarters to Southern Hills could conceivably impact the course’s ability to draw future PGA Championships, although Southern Hills General Manager Nick Sidorakis said today that the markets are different and it should not be a hindrance. The new venue has also been tentatively awarded the 2040 Ryder Cup as well as two Senior PGA Championship (2023, 2029), the PGA Professional Championship (2024, 2030, 2033), the KPMG women’s PGA Championship in 2025 and 2031, the Boys and Girls PGA Junior Championships in 2026, the PGA Cup in 2027 and the Senior PGA Professional Championship in 2028.

For the golf fans in Oklahoma, it will mean major championship golf is six hours away or less on a fairly regular basis, as well as a quality golf resort within an easy drive distance. For the PGA members in Oklahoma, it will mean shorter travel for meetings, seminars, education and national competitions.

Below are the future sites per the PGA of America website.
