The Meadows Golf Club offers a Premier Midwest Golf Experience and is located in Ashbury, Iowa.  It was voted Golf Digest Magazine “Four Star Rating” and voted “Best Golf Course in Tri-State area from 2003-2017.   Founded in 1996 the course has generous open fairways and is beautifully lined with fescue and mature trees.  Special thanks to PGA General Manager Jeremy Hawkins for his continued support of the Iowa PGA Junior Tour and Pee Wee Tour in hosting this Major Event.  

Kearney Hill Golf Links is a premier public golf course, located in northwest Fayette County. It is a Scottish links-style course, characterized by deep sand and grass bunkers, sparse trees and open, rolling terrain. The specific landscape makes wind a prominent factor when playing Kearney Hill.

Golf Digest Magazine has ranked Kearney Hill as one of the top 10 courses in Kentucky and the course has hosted many esteemed golfing events throughout the years.  Kearney Hill was designed by famous golf course architects Pete and P.B. Dye, who have designed many other unique and highly-acclaimed courses around the country.

Ames Golf & Country Club was formed in 1911. The renowned Donald Sechrest of Tulsa, Oklahoma, designed the 18-hole, 114-acre course in 1971. The golf course boasts lush fairways, tees and well-manicured greens irrigated and surrounded by a few small, well-positioned lakes. Also included are an ample practice and teaching facility and a large practice green.  In the last couple of years, the facility is undergoing some fantastic rennovations improving course conditions and layout.  Special thanks to Ames G & CC staff and membership for their continued support of this championship.  

Valhalla, the great hall described in Norse mythology where the souls of Vikings feasted and celebrated with the gods, is now the namesake of a modern paradise for championship golf.  Valhalla Golf Club, located approximately 20 miles east of Louisville, opened its doors in 1986. Named one of the top three new private golf courses in the U.S. in 1987, the first year it was eligible, Valhalla Golf Club remains the No. 1-ranked course in Kentucky. 

Dwight Gahm and his three sons – Walt, Gordy and Phil – commissioned Jack Nicklaus to build this private golf facility on 486 acres of rolling Kentucky terrain and has now hosted several PGA Championships and is slated to return in 2024.
