Report: 2018 BMW Championship to be played at Aronimink near Philadelphia



The PGA Tour is returning to Philadelphia area, with Aronimink Golf Club set to host the 2018 BMW Championship, according to a CSN Philly report.

The Newtown Square, Pa., club has been offered the chance to host the event, which is the penultimate leg of the FedEx Cup playoffs and limited to the top 70 players in the points standings. Members will vote March 4 to accept the invitation; the measure is expected to pass easily.

Aronimink last welcomed the PGA Tour back in 2010 and '11 when it held the Quicken Loans National as regular host Congressional Country Club in Potomac, Md., prepared to hold the 2011 U.S. Open. The club, which hosted the 1962 PGA Championship, still hopes to host a major championship in the future.



The BMW Championship rotates locales each year, with a semi-permanent home in the Chicago area in odd-numbered years. The tournament can move around the country on even-numbered years.
