Mark Hill, USGA senior managing director, Championships, remarked, “We are happy to return to Atlanta Athletic Club to conduct these three USGA championships.” “The USGA is excited to continue our longstanding partnership with this illustrious club, which has hosted so many memorable USGA championships and iconic champions.”

The Ryder Cup (1963), three PGA Championships (1981, 2001, and 2011), and the 2021 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship have all been held at the club.
