The PGA of America named Quail Hollow the host of the 2025 PGA Championship on Thursday morning.

The news comes days after the organization awarded its 2030 tournament to Southern Hills, and with 2025 now filled, the Wanamaker has its venues lined up for the next 12 years.

“The PGA of America is proud to return the PGA Championship to Quail Hollow and the wonderful host city of Charlotte,” said PGA of America President Suzy Whaley. “Quail Hollow’s course has a well-earned reputation as a stern test for the world’s finest players, but what sets the club apart is its membership and the welcoming atmosphere that they promote. The state of North Carolina’s appreciation for the game and major championship golf is remarkable.”

The announcement signals the PGA’s commitment to making Quail Hollow a part of its championship rota. The course held its first major in 2017 and is set to host the 2021 Presidents Cup, to say nothing of its annual Wells Fargo Championship on the PGA Tour. Preceding Quail Hollow in the PGA lineup will be Kiawah Island Ocean Course in 2021, Trump Bedminster in 2022, Oak Hill in 2023 and Valhalla in 2024.

The course was designed by George Cobb in 1961, with Tom Fazio reconfiguring the front nine in 2016. Quail Hollow’s “The Green Mile,” the final three holes on the course, routinely ranks as one of the toughest three-hole stretches on tour.

This year’s PGA Championship is scheduled to begin Aug. 6 at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco. Brooks Koepka is the defending champ.
