Course Insight

Oak Hill’s East Course was designed by Donald Ross, opening in 1925. Through the years, it was modified by Robert Trent Jones and George and Tom Fazio. In 2019, a restoration by Andrew Green brought back original Ross characteristics. The course has hosted three PGA Championships and three U.S. Opens.

Notable Course Features

Two new holes, the par-3 fifth and par-4 sixth, were built in the 2019 restoration in the style of holes on the Ross original that had been eliminated. Also, a pond installed on the par-3 15th in the 1970s was removed. On other holes, the original dimensions of Ross greens were restored, bunkers renovated and trees removed.

PGA REACH is the 501(c)(3) charitable foundation of the 2023 PGA Championship. Its mission is to positively impact the lives of youths, military and diverse populations by enabling access to PGA Professionals, PGA Sections and the game of golf, via several flagship programs.
