About Baltusrol Golf Club
Baltusrol Golf Club, synonymous with champion-ship golf, sits at the base of Baltusrol Mountain in northern New Jersey, only a stone’s throw from New York City. With a rich heritage that dates back to 1895, Baltusrol is considered one of the country’s premier private golf clubs. Its two championship courses, the Lower and Upper, have played distinguished roles on the national golf stage since their creation by Golden Age architect A.W. Tillinghast. Together, the courses have hosted 17 major championships, including seven U.S. Opens and two PGA Championships. The Lower Course is currently closed for an extensive renovation performed by famed architect, Gil Hanse. The Lower Course will open in the spring of 2021 and will host the 2023 KPMG Women's PGA Championship and the 2029 PGA Championship.
