BUT NOT UNTIL TODAY DID I REALIZE THAT I BUILT
BETTER THAN I KNEW."

Aronimink Golf Club was founded in 1896 and moved to its current location in 1926. Donald Ross, the Scottish pro who became one of America’s foremost golf architects, was commissioned to design the course.

Over the past century we have hosted many prestigious tournaments most notably the 1962 PGA Championship, the 1977 U.S. Amateur Championship, the 1997 United States Junior Amateur Championship, 2003 Senior PGA Championship,the 2010 and 2011 AT&T National Championship, and the 2018 BMW Championship.
