Northwest of Tampa, the course was designed by noted architect Donald Ross (1872–1948). It opened 92 years ago in 1927 on New Year's Day as a municipal course,[3] It was acquired by the PGA of America in 1944,[4][5] renamed "PGA National Golf Club," and hosted the PGA Seniors' Championship for eighteen consecutive years (1945–1962). The PGA of America moved its national offices from Chicago to Dunedin in 1956,[6] then sold its holdings in the course back to the city in 1962. It relocated its offices to eastern Florida in 1965 at Palm Beach Gardens.[5]
