TOWN AND COUNTRY, Mo. (KSDK) - Bellerive Country Club will be the third club in history to host all four rotating men's Major Championships when the course becomes home to the 74th PGA Championship May 21-26.

The club first opened its doors in 1897 in north St. Louis as a nine-hole course with 166 members. In 1955, the club moved west and a farm location was picked for the new site.

Bellerive became the youngest course to ever host the US Open in 1965. It has hosted an array of events including the PGA Championship, U.S. Senior Open, and the BMW Championship, part of the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

Bellerive will also host the 100th PGA Championship in August of 2018.
