PGA Championship – Bellerive Country Club; St. Louis, Missouri:  August 6-12, 2018


This classic storied venue, founded in 1897 occupied its’ initial location until 1955 when the membership decided to build a new course. This new Parkland test, named “The Green Monster of Ladue”, was designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Sr. and opened in 1960. The course was redone in 2005 by Reese Jones who was careful to maintain most of the original designer’s style.

The rebuild created small targets within the dramatic contoured greens and rebuilt and moved the location of some fairway and greenside bunkers, and these changes will add to the great test this venue will be for the qualified best tour players. During its storied history Bellerive C.C. has hosted the 1965 US Open, the 1992 PGA and the 2004 Senior US Open and many other PGA events.
