PGA, Trump Announce Major Partnership

The PGA of America announced today that it has entered a new partnership with The Trump Organization, selecting Trump National Golf Club -- Bedminster, N.J. as the site of the 2022 PGA Championship and Trump National Golf Club -- Washington, D.C., in Potomac Falls, Va., as the site of the 2017 Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid.

In August 2022, Trump National Golf Club -- Bedminster will host the 104th PGA Championship, which will mark the third New Jersey course to host a PGA Championship and the Championship's fourth overall visit to the state. The 78th Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid in May 2017 at Trump National Golf Club -- Washington, D.C., will be the first time the most historic and prestigious championship in senior golf will be conducted in Virginia.

"The PGA of America is excited to begin a new chapter of major championship history by taking two of our premier championships to venues that bear the Trump label of excellence," said PGA President Ted Bishop. "Mr. Trump understands what it means to present both the finest venues in golf and an unforgettable experience for both our fans and the greatest players in the game. We look forward to having these exceptional sites identify a major champion in the PGA Championship and the Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid."

Donald J. Trump is chairman and president of The Trump Organization, which owns 16 world-class golf properties throughout North America, Europe and the Middle East, not including the spectacular Trump National Doral, the 800-acre facility that Mr. Trump has just rebuilt.
