Course Breakdown

  • Valhalla Golf Club
  • Charlotte, N.C.
  • Par 71

Valhalla stands as one of the longest courses on the circuit. With only 62 bunkers but numerous hazards, including forced layups and small greens, precision and accuracy are paramount for success at this Major Championship.

Weather conditions for the PGA Championship offer a mixed bag. Ongoing rain will soften the course but potentially pose challenges with intermittent storms throughout the week. While winds remain relatively tame, the ever-changing weather could impact play, making it essential to stay updated closer to lock for any potential advantages.

Our projected winning score is -12 under, with a top-70-and-ties cut in this prestigious event. Previous winners’ performances at Valhalla underscore the importance of driving distance, tee-to-green excellence and strong putting, all of which will play pivotal roles in crowning this year’s champion.
