0 The PGA Championship at Baltusrol

BaltusrolThe final golf major of the year - the PGA Championship - begins tomorrow at the Baltusrol Golf Club in New Jersey.

Baltusrol? It certainly doesn't lodge in the memory banks like Augusta, Pinehurst or Pebble Beach, but the PGA Championship is returning to the club for its second time, and is no stranger to major championships having hosted seven US Opens, four US Amateurs, two US Women's Opens, two US 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, New Jersey. 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 are both ranked in the Top 100 Courses in America by three major golf publications, Golf Digest, Golfweek and Golf Magazine.

In 2014, Baltusrol achieved National Historic Landmark status. Past GCSAA President Mark Kuhns is director of grounds at Baltusrol.
