PGA Championship returning to Oak Hill in 2023


The PGA of America announced Wednesday that the 2023 PGA Championship will be held at Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford, N.Y.

This will mark the fourth time the PGA has been contested at Oak Hill, which will tie a record. The season's final major was first held on the Donald Ross design in 1980, when Jack Nicklaus won his penultimate major, followed by victories by Shaun Micheel and Jason Dufner in 2003 and 2013, respectively.

Oak Hill also hosted the U.S. Open in 1989, won by Curtis Strange, and the 1998 U.S. Amateur, won by Hank Kuehne.

"We are very excited to come back here in 2023," said PGA of America president Derek Sprague. "We are looking for just an unbelievably successful championship there. The community has always embraced the PGA Championships here, and they're real golf enthusiasts here."

The news was first reported last month by the Democrat and Chronicle, which added that Oak Hill could become one of the PGA of America's "core rotation venues." That designation could see it host the PGA every seven or eight years, and could open up the possibility of hosting the KPMG Women's PGA Championship in the future.

The PGA of America removed the Grand Slam of Golf from Trump National in Los Angeles in July and ultimately canceled the event entirely last week. But in reviewing future PGA Championship venues during Wednesday's announcement, the organization confirmed that the 2022 PGA is still planned for Trump Bedminster in New Jersey.

Other future host sites include Baltusrol (2016), Quail Hollow (2017), Bellerive (2018), Bethpage Black (2019), TPC Harding Park (2020) and Kiawah Island (2021).
