The 86th PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in Kohler, WI was such a success that the course was recently named the home of the championship in 2010 and 2015. Additionally, the course will host the Ryder cup in 2020 pending guarantees of sufficient hotel rooms.
The Straits Course, Pete Dye's latest major design to receive a national audience and a large tournament, was opened in 1998 alongside Lake Michigan and ranks among the top 5 places you can play according to Golf Magazine. At 7,536, the Straits course is currently the longest course in major championship history.
Said Herb Kohler, fauce man extraordinaire, "We are honored that the club professionals of The PGA of America have made such a strong long-term commitment to return to this venue."
