This year’s PGA Championship will be returning to the Baltusrol Golf Club for its second time, but this club is no stranger to major championships.

To date, Baltusrol Golf Club has hosted seven U.S. Opens, four U.S. Amateurs, two U.S. Women’s Opens, two U.S. Women’s Amateurs and, including this year’s championship, two PGA Championships.

Baltusrol Golf Club sits at the base of Baltusrol Mountain in Springfield Township, N.J. Its two championship courses, the Lower and Upper, have played distinguished roles on the national stage since their creation by Golden Age architect A.W. Tillinghast in 1922.

Today, the Lower and Upper both are ranked in the Top 100 Courses in America by three major golf publications, Golf Digest, Golfweek and Golf Magazine.

In 2014, Baltusrol becomes achieved National Historic Landmark status. Past GCSAA President Mark Kuhns is director of grounds at Baltusrol. Learn more about Kuhns, his predictions for the 2016 PGA Championship and his turf tips, here.
