(March 10, 2015) – Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles, one of the most spectacular golf courses in the country, will host the 33rd PGA Grand Slam of Golf, Oct. 19-21, 2015. The showcase of major champions is part of a multi-year agreement between the PGA of America and the Trump Organization.

It marks the event's first return to the U.S. mainland since 1993. Golf Channel will televise the event beginning this year.

In addition, PGA Grand Slam week at Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles will feature the 2015 PGA Junior League Golf Championship, Oct. 17-19.

"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."

The PGA Grand Slam of Golf features the most difficult qualification requirement in the game – a major championship.

"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."

Golf Channel's coverage of the PGA Grand Slam of Golf will air live on Tuesday, Oct. 20 and Wednesday, Oct. 21, from 3:00-8:00 p.m. ET and include primetime replays.

Additionally, Golf Channel will cover Monday's Pro-Am, as well as live news coverage on Morning Drive and Golf Central for both the PGA Grand Slam of Golf and PGA Junior League Golf Championships.

"This was truly a trifecta of circumstance to the betterment of all parties. From a spectacular venue in Trump LA, to TNT's shift to focus on original entertainment programming in this telecast window and Golf Channel's ability to elevate this unique event with a primetime showcase and robust news coverage surrounding the event," said PGA Chief Executive Officer Pete Bevacqua. "Turner Sports has been and continues to be a valued, long-time partner of the PGA of America and both parties remain committed to our exclusive presentation of the PGA Championship on TNT, now entering its 25th year, and our 12-plus year partnership for the management of PGA.com.”

Established in 2006, Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles features a 7,242-yard, par-71 layout with expansive lakes, massive bunkers, waterfalls and some of the most scenic views in the game from every hole.

PGA Junior League Golf

PGA Junior League Golf is the key youth program of PGA REACH, the charitable arm of the PGA of America. The program is designed to be a fun, accessible and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls ages 13 and under to learn and play the game of golf. The 2015 PGA Junior League Golf Championship follows an explosive 2014 season of growth with 17,500 boys and girls participating on 1,425 teams.

"Playing in the PGA Grand Slam of Golf signifies that you achieved a great milestone in the game. The boys and girls in the PGA Junior League Golf Championship finals during Grand Slam week also have accomplished something very special," said Rory McIlroy, PGA Junior League Golf Official Ambassador. "To have the finals at a great course and on a week celebrating major champions is an experience these young players will cherish for a lifetime."

During PGA Grand Slam of Golf Week, eight 10-player teams matching East vs. West regions will compete in a two-person scramble format, with coaches allowed to substitute every three holes in order that all team members may participate.

"PGA Grand Slam week also will be a showcase for future stars of the game at the PGA Junior League Golf Championship," said Sprague. "This popular program has grown tremendously and makes for a truly special week in golf."

The final matches at Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles will be Monday, Oct. 19.
