FRENCH LICK, Ind.— The Pete Dye Course at French Lick Resort will be the 2015 home of a historic and prestigious event in senior golf.
PGA officials announced Tuesday the 76th Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid would be held at the golf course from May 21 to May 24, 2015. This event becomes the fourth major championship hosted by the resort.
It will be the first visit to Indiana for the Senior PGA Championship.
“The Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid has demonstrated its ability to attract and establish a tradition of bringing this premier event to many of the premier courses in the country,” said PGA of America President Ted Bishop. “It is exciting to have the opportunity to bring the Championship to French Lick, which most recognize as the hometown of basketball legend Larry Bird, but also became a site of golf history when Walter Hagen, one of our Association founders, enhanced his legendary career. The connection is now alive again in 2015 when the finest senior professionals in the world, including some of legendary status, compete for the Alfred S. Bourne trophy in Indiana.”
Corporate Hospitality packages, Tickets sales and volunteer opportunities will begin this fall for the 76th Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid, “French Lick is a quality venue, with an historic past and a premium experience, just like The PGA of America and our KitchenAid brand. We look forward to working with them and hosting our customers with their first class hospitality”, said Jeff Fettig, Chairman and CEO of Whirlpool Corporation.
