Updated: April 3, 2017

Sunriver Resort, one of the country’s most scenic golf destinations, featuring acclaimed Crosswater Club, will host the 50th PGA Professional National Championship presented by Club Car, Mercedes-Benz and OMEGA, in June 2017. This will be the fourth visit to Oregon by the PGA of America’s showcase event for PGA Professionals.

The Championship will bring a field of 312 to the Central Oregon resort, utilizing both Crosswater Club and Meadows Golf Course that hosted the 2001, ’07 and ’13 National Championships. Crosswater Club, ranked by Golf Digest as one of “America’s Greatest 100 Public Golf Courses,” was the site of the Champions Tour’s Jeld-Wen Tradition from 2007-10; the 2006 NCAA men’s Division I Championship and the 1998 Western PGA Professional Championship.

“We’re excited to welcome back the PGA of America by hosting the 50th PGA Professional National Championship,” said PGA Professional Josh Willis, Sunriver Resort Director of Golf Operations. “We’re confident that the Crosswater and Meadows golf courses will once again provide a challenging test for our country’s best PGA Professionals.” Designed by Bob Cupp, the par-72 Crosswater Golf Club played to 7,530 yards in 2013; while the par-71 Meadows Golf Course, a collaborative effort between Fred Federspiel and John Fought, was played at 6,969 yards in the Championship.
