The PGA Professional Championship is headed to South Carolina in 2019 …
According to golf’s official website, Belfair of Bluffton, S.C. will host the 52nd edition of this tournament from April 28 – May 1, 2019.
“The PGA of America is excited to take the PGA Professional Championship to Belfair, which is an outstanding location to showcase our finest playing PGA Professionals,” said tour president Paul Levy. “Belfair features the elements we look for in this national championship – challenging courses, inviting facilities and a staff that embraces an exceptional field.”
This is the third time this tournament – which caters to golf club professionals and teachers – will be hosted in the Palmetto State. In 2014 it was held at The Dunes Golf and Beach Club in Myrtle Beach, S.C. and in 2005 it was held at Kiawah Island Golf Resort‘s famed Ocean Course.
The twenty lowest scoring golfers at the PGA Professional Championship earn invitations to the prestigious PGA Championship, which was held at Kiawah’s Ocean Course in 2012. Irish golfer Rory McIlroy won that tournament by eight strokes over David Lynn to secure his second major tournament win.
