HAZELTINE NATIONAL GOLF CLUB
On behalf of the members and staff of Hazeltine National Golf Club, welcome to the 2009 PGA Championship where the strongest field in championship golf will vie for the season’s final major.
In hosting this our second PGA Championship, we’re mindful of our club’s mission
to “build and maintain a golf course suitable for the conduct of national
championships.” Since the 2002 PGA Championship, we’ve undertaken several projects,
which further enhance our course and will challenge today’s best players. One of the most
notable changes is that we have added almost 400 yards to the length of the course.
In addition to the hosting of this 91st PGA Championship, our legacy also includes two U.S. Open Championships, two U.S. Women’s Open Championships, the U.S. Senior Open Championship, the PGA Grand Slam of Golf, the U.S. Amateur Championship, and several other significant amateur events. And, of course, we can’t forget the 2016 Ryder Cup coming to Hazeltine!
It’s a stellar list of Championships for a club as young as 47 years, and we’re proud not only of our membership and staff but are excited for our Minnesota golf fans who are among the most knowledgeable and appreciative of great golf anywhere in the country.
Undertaking this major championship would not be possible without the time and energy of the more than 3,500 volunteers who are dedicated to making this event an enjoyable experience for all. We also acknowledge the support and assistance from our partners at the City of Chaska, other metro communities and the State of Minnesota.
I’d also like to acknowledge the benefits that hosting this Championship have brought to our communities, as detailed in the Community Relations Program insert included in this Journal.
We, like you, are looking forward to four days of exciting, challenging and memorable golf played at the highest level, and anxiously await Sunday afternoon when the Wanamaker Trophy will be presented to our 2009 PGA Champion.
