This was the second-time in as many years that the PGA of America announced majors for men and women at the same course. They previously announced the PGA Championship and Women’s PGA Championship will be at Aronimink over the next decade.

The Newton Square, Pa. golf course will host its first PGA Tour event this year for the first-time in seven-years. They will host the BMW Championship from Wednesday, September 5th through Sunday, September 9th.

This will be the first event this golf course held since the PGA Tour’s AT&T National in 2010 and 2011. The AT&T National is Tiger Woods’ event.

When the PGA Championship returns to Aronimink, it’ll be the first-time since 1962 this golf course held the PGA Championship. Gary Player shot a 2-under-278 to win the event.

Baltusrol Golf course, which is located twenty miles west from New York City, last held the PGA Championship in 2016. Jimmy Walker shot a 14-under-266 to win the event.

This golf course also held the PGA Championship in 2005. Phil Mickelson shot a 4-under-276 to win the event.

When the Women’s PGA Championship comes to Baltusrol in 2023, it’ll be the first women’s event at this facility since 1985. This golf course has never held the Women’s PGA Championship.

They have previously held two Women’s U.S. Open, along with a Women’s Amateur event. In 1985, Kathy Baker shot an 8-under-280 in the upper course to win the Women’s U.S. Open.

In 1911, Margaret Curtis won the Women’s U.S. Open with a 5 & 3 score.
