PHOENIX — Phoenix Country Club is hosting the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, the season-ending event for the PGA Tour Champions, for the seventh time.
The club was established in 1899 with 75 members and started out with a nine-hole layout as well as tennis courts. The club moved to a second location a few miles north for a few years and then in 1919, the club upgraded to its permanent home in central Phoenix.
The golf course was designed by Harry Collis and originally featured oiled sand greens, once a staple of golf courses in certain areas of the country like Texas and Oklahoma.
In 1932 the venue hosted the inaugural Phoenix Open, which was won by Ralph Guldahl, who captured two U.S Opens and the 1939 Masters.
It was redesigned in 2002 Tom Lehman and John Fought. It now plays as a par 71 measuring 6,860 yards.
