PGA Winter Championship
The PGA Winter Championships began in 1954, at the former PGA National Golf Club in Dunedin, Fla., to provide additional playing opportunities for PGA Professionals. That first year's schedule featured the Stroke Play Championship and Quarter Century Championship. The Senior-Junior Championship was added in 1959, and the Match Play Championship in 1964. With the founding of the Champions Tour, the Senior PGA Championship was separated from the PGA Winter Championships and a new senior age division competition was developed for PGA members. In 1985, this event was named the Senior Stroke Play Championship. In February 2000, the Women's Stroke Play Championship became the sixth leg of the popular program.
After more than forty years at facilities throughout Florida, PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie became the new tournament headquarters in January 2000.
