Turning Stone Resort in Verona, home to three of the country’s premier public/resort courses, has been named as the site of the 49th PGA Professional National Championship in 2016, marking a return visit of the showcase event for PGA Professionals to Central New York. The 312-player Championship will be conducted June 26-29, 2016.
The Championship, previously hosted by Turning Stone Resort in 2006, will be contested on the Atunyote Golf Club and the Shenendoah Golf Club. Atunyote, which will host the final 36 holes of the Championship, was the site of the former Turning Stone Resort Championship (2007-10) on the PGA Tour. Both courses have hosted former PGA Regional Professional and Section Championships. Turning Stone also boasts a third championship course, Kaluhyat Golf Club.
“We’re excited to be taking the PGA Professional National Championship back to Central New York and Turning Stone Resort, home to some of the finest public golf in the country,” said PGA of America President Ted Bishop. “Turning Stone has built a tradition of hosting premier championships and we anticipate in 2016, our centennial year, we will have another memorable chapter written by our best playing PGA Professionals.”
