The 102nd PGA Championship will mark the first PGA Championship in San Francisco, and will mark only the sixth municipal course to host a major championship in the 120-year history of American championship golf. San Francisco’s TPC Harding Park, which is owned by the City and County of San Francisco, was selected back in 2014 as the venue for the 2020 PGA Championship. The tournament, consisting of a week-long series of events beginning May 11, will mark San Francisco’s first time hosting a PGA Championship. It will also be the first time since 1998 that the PGA Championship is held on the West Coast of the United States.
Also included in the deal is an agreement that The Olympic Club, a nearby private athletic club, will host the PGA Championship in 2028 and the Ryder Cup in 2032.
Located in the southwestern portion of the city and set against Lake Merced, the park first opened in 1925 as Harding Park Golf Club, named in honor of president Warren G. Harding. The course was renovated in 2003 and subsequently added to the PGA Tour’s Tournament Players Club network in 2010. Notably, TPC Harding Park will have the distinction of becoming the first major championship to be held at a TPC facility when the 2020 PGA Championship finally tees off next May.
The decision to stage the 2020 championship at TPC Harding Park is just the beginning in a 13-year-long partnership between the City and County of San Francisco and the Professional Golfers’ Association of America, the organizer of the PGA Championship. The PGA of America is one of the world’s largest sports organizations, with nearly 29,000 men and women professionals who work daily to grow interest and participation in the game of golf. The organization continues to lead the multi-billion-dollar golf industry and it conducts some of golf’s most prestigious competitions, including the PGA Championship, the Ryder Cup and the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship. The PGA also partners with the Ladies Professional Golf Association and KPMG, a leading tax, audit and tax advisory firm, to conduct the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.
