PGA Grand Slam To Be Held In Los Angeles

March 10, 2015

The PGA of America announced that the 33rd PGA Grand Slam of Golf will be hosted by Trump National Golf Club in Los Angeles this year, marking the event’s first return to the U.S. mainland since 1993.

Last year the PGA confirmed that the event will move from Bermuda, which first came to Bermuda in 2007, marking the first time the event was played outside of the United States. It was first played at Mid Ocean Club, and in 2009 the PGA Grand Slam moved to Port Royal Golf Course.

Trump National Golf Club in Los Angeles will host the event in October of this year, and the PGA said the showcase of major champions is part of a multi-year agreement between the PGA of America and the Trump Organization.

“The PGA of America begins a new chapter in celebrating the winners of the Masters, U.S. Open, Open Championship and PGA Championship through an exciting partnership with The Trump Organization, the owner and operator of a large portfolio of exceptional golf properties,” said PGA of America President Derek Sprague.

“The PGA Grand Slam of Golf has always been a showcase for the best in our game. We are pleased that Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles will provide a great challenge to the game’s finest players.”

“We are thrilled to welcome the PGA to Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles – the perfect location for the PGA Grand Slam of Golf,” said Donald Trump, Chairman and President of the Trump Organization.

“It’s an incredible course situated on dramatic bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean and will be a challenging and exciting test for the best players in the world. The combination of the course itself and stunning location will no doubt be a major draw for spectators and television viewers alike.”

The winners of golf’s four major championships in 2015 are eligible to compete in the 33rd PGA Grand Slam of Golf. The major championship lineup for 2015: the Masters, April 9-12, at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia; the U.S. Open Championship, June 18-21, at Chambers Bay in University Park, Washington; the Open Championship, July 16-19, at St. Andrews, Scotland; and the 97th PGA Championship, Aug. 13-16, at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.

  1. San Diago is nice…

    I’m so glad we got rid of this silly golf game and replaced it with the granddaddy of all yachting events, The America’s Cup.

  3. Mixitup says:

    I agree, but I hope you know that LA and San Diego are two different cities.

  4. aceboy says:

    They will have a nice Club House to use.

    Port Royal was supposed to build a new Club House, and could have, but 20 million disappeared like magic.

  5. PBanks says:

    Check The Donald, staying relevant once again. I bet the trophy is going to be huuuuuuge.

  6. Mr. Ed says:

    Bermuda had it’s turn and got lots of exposure for it too – it’s how much it used to cost that is the problem.

      I agree it offered great exposure for Bermuda but unfortunately, very little $ return :-( But, it was fun and a boost to our egos while I lasted :-)
