Aronimink Golf Club was founded in 1896 and moved to its current location in 1926. Donald Ross, the Scottish pro who became one of America’s foremost golf architects, was commissioned to design the course. Upon returning in 1948 Ross said of the course, “I intended to make this my masterpiece, but not until today did I realize I built it better than I knew.” In 2017, Aronimink Golf Club completed extensive Master Plan restorations, returning the golf course to its vintage look based off aerial and ground photos from 1929. Famed architect, Gil Hanse, lead the design team in restoring 174 original bunkers, reclaiming lost green and fairway space, and reshaping tees to their natural free-form look. AGC is looking forward to showcasing these restorations in June of 2020 at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and the 2026 PGA Championship. Today, Aronimink remains in Golf Digest’s Top 100 courses in the country and 2020 will prove to be yet another critical bookmark in the clubs rich history. Over the past century, the club has hosted many prestigious events. Most notably the 1962 PGA Championship, 1977 U.S.Amateur Championship, 1997 U.S. Junior Amateur Championship, 2003 Senior PGA Championship, 2010 and 2011 AT&T National Championship and the 2018 BMWChampionship.
