A Look at Oak Hill Country Club Like You’ve Never Seen

Published on

Ever wondered what the inside of a major championship venue looks like? We've got you covered. Fly with us through the historic Oak Hill Country Club, future site of the 105th PGA Championship. We'll take you through the hallways, give you a glimpse of the Wanamaker Trophy and show you the first tee where the world's best will start in May 2023.
Built in 1922 in the upstate New York city of Pittsford, Oak Hill Country Club is a world class venue with a deep history of hosting premier tournaments, including five major championships and the 1995 Ryder Cup.
The club's two East and West courses were opened in 1922 and 1925 and originally designed by Donald Ross. They are both surrounded by trees, mainly oak, that were planted on the barren farmland the land originally sat on. Though several architects have applied changes over the years - including Robert Trent Jones Sr and Tom Fazio - Oak Hill turned back the clock in 2019 by commissioning Andrew Green to restore the greens and bunkers.
Beyond the courses, the clubhouse is also rich in tradition and history. From the large oak tree that greets you at the grand main entrance to the historic relics throughout, it's clear to see what makes this place special. In 2023, Oak Hill will host a record-tying fourth PGA Championship, matching Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The 2023 Championship will be the 14th PGA in New York, the most for any state.
