Tanglewood Park in Forsyth County, NC (near Winston-Salem)  gets go-ahead for a $15 million new clubhouse. The Forsyth County Board of Commissoners gave its approval in December 2023. The new clubhose will be slightly smaller than the existing one and will be built on the same site after the current clubhouse is demolished. A temporary clubhouse (described as a trailer) will be used during the construction phase and it will be located near the existing clubhouse along the 18th fairway of the Chamspionship Course. The estimated date of completion of the project is the Fall of 2025.

The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island to host 2031 PGA Championship.
The PGA of America has announced that The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in Kiawah Island will host the PGA Championship in May of 2031. This marks the third time the event was held at the course. The Ocean Course, regarded as one of the best courses in the U.S., was designed by Pete and Alice Dye. Another interesting fact about The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island is that it is officially rated the hardest golf course in the world, based on course ratings. The course is so challenging that it has earned the nickname ‘The Marquis de Sade’ after the French writer of torture whose name became synonymous with sadism. It has a course rating of 79.6 and is capable of being played up to 7,900 yards from the back tees. The Ocean Course was even a brutal test to some of the best players in the world at the 1991 Ryder Cup, which saw holes won with scores as high as double bogey.
