The 2023 PGA Championship will be held at Oak Hill Country Club’s East Course, a 1924 Donald Ross design. In this video, we discuss the course’s history and design with club historian Fred Beltz and consulting golf architect Andrew Green. In 2020, Green was hired by the club to prepare it for this year’s PGA Championship and restore as much of Ross’s original design as possible.
A big thank you to Andrew Green, Fred Beltz, and Oak Hill Country Club for not only their time but also the historical photos and assets. Specific credit for access to Donald Ross’s sketches, construction photos, and before-and-after imagery goes to Andrew Green. Historical imagery of the original club, clubhouse, and early photographs of the current property came from Oak Hill.
