16 PGA Championship courses to add to your bucket list!

Wannamaker Trophy

There are plenty of PGA Championship courses you can play on golf vacations.

This year’s PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club in New Jersey is off to a great start.

I’m particularly fascinated by the course’s routing – how strange it must be for the pros not to encounter a par five until the 649-yard 17th, and then finish on another (more reachable) three-shotter.

That should make for quite the finish come Sunday afternoon.

One slight bummer about Baltusrol, though, is that unlike last year’s PGA venue – Whistling Straits – very few of us will have the opportunity to play the course, given the private nature of the club.

That said, there are a number of past and future PGA Championship venues that you and I can (and should) visit and play.

And guess what? There are more of these courses than you might think…and you probably live or will soon travel near one of them.

Check out the list here:

As you can see, the PGA Championship has been (and will continue to be) played on plenty of public courses in some of the best golf vacation destinations in America, making it easy to add a major championship to your own personal record book.
