Where will golf’s four Majors be played in 2024?
Three of the four Majors rotate venues every year, with the Masters at Augusta the exception.
All three of the other Majors will be returning to venues that have previously staged it.
Augusta will host the first Major of the year in April, but here we will look at the venues for the other three in 2024.
The PGA Championship, Valhalla Golf Club: May 13-19
The Jack Nicklaus-designed championship course at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky, will stage the PGA Championship for the fourth time in 2024.
The course is located on a 486-acre (2.0 km2) plot of land just outside the Gene Snyder Motorway (I-265) on Shelbyville Road (US 60), in the eastern part of Louisville. Local business magnate Dwight Gahm and his three sons conceptualised it in 1981, and it launched five years later.
It has been the venue for the PGA Championship in each of the last three decades, first hosting in 1996 before returns in 2000 and 2014.
LIV golfer Brooks Koepka will be back to defend the title he won in 2023 meanwhile, the last time Valhalla staged it Rory McIlroy won his second PGA Championship and fourth career major title, one stroke ahead of runner-up Phil Mickelson.
US Open, Pinehurst Resort (No. 2): June 10-16
The most famous of Pinehurst Resort’s ten 18-hole courses will stage the US Open for the second time after its 2014 Major debut.
James Walker Tufts, a Boston soda fountain tycoon, created Pinehurst. For around $1.25 per acre, he bought the 5,500 acres (22 km2) in 1895, and on New Year’s Eve of that year, he inaugurated the Holly Inn. The United North and South Amateur Championship was the inaugural tournament played at Pinehurst on a course that had been laid out in 1897–1898. The course is well-known for having extraordinarily challenging green complexes, which were a hallmark of Donald Ross’s designs. Several of the greens are crowned, making it likely that short shots will roll off the green and leave a challenging chip approach.
Wyndham Clark will be hard-pressed to repeat his breakout display at the 2023 US Open which he sensationally won by a single shot at Los Angeles Country Club.
The last time the Major came to Pinehurst Martin Kaymer led wire-to-wire to win his first US Open and second major title.
The Open Championship, Royal Troon Golf Club: July 15-21
Royal Troon has been a happy hunting ground for American golfers, and only once in its run as an Open Championship course has it even seen a British champion, and that was when it first hosted in 1923.
The Club’s land is bound to the west by the Firth of Clyde, to the south by a caravan park, to the east by the major road and railway line, and to the north by the town of Troon.
In 2016, Swede Henrik Stenson broke a chain of six American winners of the Open Championship at Royal Troon.
American Brian Harmon is the defending Open Champion as the event returns to Scotland.
