French Lick Resort to host 2015 Senior PGA Championship

Updated:

The Senior PGA Championship will come to French Lick Resort in 2015, the resort announced Tuesday.

French Lick Resort's Pete Dye Course, which opened in 2009, will be the site of the tournament scheduled for May 21-24, 2015.

The Senior PGA Championship becomes the fourth major championship hosted by the resort, following the 1924 PGA Championship, played on the Donald Ross Course, won by Walter Hagen whose triumph began a remarkable four-year PGA winning streak. The French Lick Resort also hosted the 1959 and '60 LPGA Championships. French Lick's Pete Dye Course also hosted the 2010 PGA Professional National Championship.

The Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid marks its first visit to Indiana, with an international 156-member field competing on the par-72, 7,400-yard Pete Dye Course, designed by its legendary namesake.

Ticket sales will begin this fall.
