Turning Stone to host '16 PGA Pro National Champ.


Turning Stone Resort will host the 2016 PGA Professional National Championship, it was announced this week.

The 312-man event will be held in Verona, N.Y., on June 26-29, 2016.

The resort last hosted the event in 2006. Atunyote Golf Club, which served as the site for the PGA Tour’s Turning Stone Resort Championship (2007-2010), will host the final 36 holes of the championship, while players will also compete on Shenendoah Golf Club earlier in the event.  

“We’re excited to be taking the PGA Professional National Championship back to Central New York and Turning Stone Resort, home to some of the finest public golf in the country,” PGA president Ted Bishop said in a release. “Turning Stone has built a tradition of hosting premier championships and we anticipate in 2016, our centennial year, we will have another memorable chapter written by our best playing PGA professionals.”
