Aronimink Golf Club lands 2027 PGA Championship, 2020 KPMG Women’s PGA

You get a major. You get a major. And you get a major.

For the third time in a week, the site of an upcoming PGA Championship has been learned.

Aronimink (Pa.) Golf Club has been awarded a men’s and women’s major championship — the 2027 PGA Championship and the 2020 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship — the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Monday.

Last week, the PGA officially announced that the 2028 PGA Championship and the 2032 Ryder Cup would be held at the Olympic Club in San Francisco. It was also reported that PGA Championship will return to Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky., in 2024.

A formal announcement is set at Aronimink by the PGA of America Tuesday.

The idea of holding majors at the club became more practical after Aronimink embarked on an major course upgrade last year. About 85 percent of the project was completed before work stopped in early spring, and that the entire undertaking will be completed early in 2018, officials told The Inquirer.

Aronimink plays host to the BMW Championship next year, which is the third of four events in the FedExCup playoffs.

Gary Player won the PGA Championship in 1962, the last time it was held at Aronimink. The club, like many others, had a tarnished past when it came to the racial breakdown of its members. Aronimink lost a chance to host the 1993 PGA because it was determined in 1990 the club would not have had any minority members by the time of that event.

The 100th PGA Championship takes place Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis. It will be the final PGA Championship held in August. The event shifts to May in 2019 as the second major when it comes to Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, N.Y.
