Major venues: Future sites for the PGA Championship

Updated 1/25/2021

The PGA Championship has traditionally been the last of the four major championships on the golf season calendar. But that changed in 2019, when it moved to the month of May. The move pushed the Players Championship back to March, its original spot on the PGA Tour calendar. All the changes are a chain reaction related to golf in the Olympics, as well as considerations for the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup.

In 2020, the PGA Championship at Harding Park was postponed until August because of the ongoing pandemic, but the calendar has reverted back to normal.

The PGA Championship has been staged on more venues than any of the four majors, and in its early days, went to remote resorts like French Lick and Shawnee Inn that are too logistically challenging to host a modern major. Future venues for the PGA Championship include recent U.S. Open sites.

The move to May brought more southern golf courses into play, including top venues in Florida, Texas, Arizona and Oklahoma.

Update (1/25/2021): The PGA of America has selected Southern Hills Country Club to replace Trump Bedminster in 2022. Southern Hills is fresh off a restoration and renovation by Gil Hanse. The Perry Maxwell design is considered a classic test of golf and arguably his best work. The 2021 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship will serve as a nice tune-up for the main event the following year.

For now, here is what we know about confirmed sites for the PGA Championship.
