Donald Trump’s New Jersey golf club will host the 2022 PGA Championship, fulfilling an ambition of the real-estate developer to stage one of the sport’s four major tournaments.

The Trump National Golf Club’s Old Course, which opened in 2004 in Bedminster, N.J., is about a 40-minute drive west of Manhattan. The layout was created by Tom Fazio on a 525-acre site previously owned by car designer John DeLorean.

“It’s a phenomenal property,” said Pete Bevacqua, chief executive officer of the PGA of America. “It has an enormous amount of space for operations requirements for a major tournament and is in a major market. It became an easy decision.”

Trump has said he wants to host a U.S. Open at the course, which is scheduled to be the venue for golf’s 2017 U.S. Women’s Open. U.S. Open sites are set through 2020. Trump National D.C. in Potomac Falls, Virginia, was chosen to host the 2017 Senior PGA Championship. His New Jersey course also held the 2009 U.S. Junior and U.S. Girl’s Junior tournaments.

Trump yesterday said he bought Turnberry, one of the nine British Open courses, the British Broadcasting Corp. reported. He purchased the hotel and its courses in southwest Scotland from Dubai-based Leisurecorp. for an undisclosed amount, the BBC said. Turnberry hosted the Open for a fourth time in 2009.

Before adding Trump’s course for the 2022 PGA, future sites of the PGA Championship had been set through 2019. This year’s tournament is scheduled to be played at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky., Aug. 9-12. The 2016 PGA will be at New Jersey’s Baltusrol Golf Club, while the 2019 event will be at Bethpage State Park’s Black Course in Farmingdale, N.Y.
