KILDEER, Ill. – The PGA of America keeps delivering for the LPGA. The organization announced on Saturday that the 2023 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and 2029 PGA Championship will be played at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, N.J. Both championships will be staged on Baltusrol’s Lower Course, an A.W. Tillinghast design that opened in 1922.
This will mark the second women’s major staged at Baltusrol. At the 1961 U.S. Women’s Open, Mickey Wright finished six shots ahead of Betsy Rawls.
The PGA of America’s accompanying video announcement featured Phil Mickelson, a 2005 PGA winner at Baltusrol, and 2017 Women’s PGA winner Danielle Kang. Since the KPMG and PGA of America took on the LPGA’s flagship major in 2015, the list of championship venues have greatly elevated the prestige of the event. This dual announcement is just the latest example of KPMG’s commitment to give LPGA players a top-of-the-line opportunity.
“KPMG’s commitment to elevating women on and off the golf course is exemplified by the selection of Baltusrol Golf Club as the host of the 2023 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship,” Lynne Doughtie, KPMG U.S. Chairman and CEO, said in a release. “To help more women in business advance to the C-suite, the KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit will be held at Baltusrol and bring together top leaders across multiple industries with women nominated by their CEOs to attend.”
