A golfer could have been born, played on the PGA tour and been a veteran on the senior circuit the last time the PGA Tour swung through the Baltimore area.
But Charm City can finally dust off its golf bag, according to reports.
Caves Valley Golf Club, in Owings Mills, Md., will host next year’s BMW Championship, the Chicago Tribune and Baltimore Sun reported Wednesday, marking the PGA Tour’s first stop in the Baltimore area in nearly 60 years. An official announcement is expected on Thursday morning.
The tournament, a FedEx Cup playoff event and the final stop before the season-ending Tour Championship, has been held in the Chicago area every other year since 2011. The Chicago Tribune reported that the Western Golf Association, which conducts the event, wants to both grow the BMW Championship’s national presence and boost donations to the Evans Scholars Foundation, which receives all proceeds from the tournament.
