TPC Harding Park: Host of the 2020 PGA Championship
The PGA Championship in 2020 will mark the first major championship to be held at a TPC property and the first PGA Championship to be staged in San Francisco.
In 2020, the PGA Championship – perennially featuring golf’s strongest and deepest international lineup of any major championship – will make its fifth appearance in California, following Hillcrest Country Club (1929), Pebble Beach Golf Links (1977) and Riviera Country Club (1983, ’95). TPC Harding Park will be the second municipally owned golf course to host the PGA Championship. The only other PGA Championship to be conducted at a municipal golf facility was the 1974 Championship at Tanglewood Golf Club in Clemmons, North Carolina.
“The PGA of America is proud to be taking its major championship in 2020 to the City of San Francisco, home to one of the premier venues that embraces public golf along with the skill to stage some of the game’s greatest events,” said Bishop. “It is exciting to be sharing today’s announcement with the PGA TOUR and the City of San Francisco. Together, we look to grow the game among new audiences and present the finest championships for the greatest players in the world.”
The PGA Championship is one of four premier golf events conducted by the PGA of America. Others include the Ryder Cup, the Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid, and the PGA Grand Slam of Golf, which brings together the winners of golf’s four major championships.
Future PGA Championship venues are as follows: 2017, Quail Hollow Club, Charlotte, North Carolina; 2018, Bellerive Country Club, St. Louis; 2019, Bethpage State Park (Black), Farmingdale, New York; 2020, TPC Harding Park, San Francisco; 2021, The Ocean Course, Kiawah Island, SC; 2022, Trump National Golf Club, Bedminster, New Jersey and 2023, Oak Hill Country Club, Pittsford, NY.
