The Senior PGA championship trophy has been awarded and the corporate tents have been taken down, but the show won't be over for the Bellerive Country Club and big-time golf in St. Louis County.

The Senior PGA Championship at Bellerive was this year's first major on the calendar for the 50-and-over golfers.  But in August of 2018, the order of majors will be reversed when the PGA Championship is held.

Though the magnitude in five years will differ from last week's senior event , David Charles of the PGA of America says his organization will try to keep it simple.

The General Manager and Chief Operating Officer of Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis is in Benton Harbor, Michigan, this week asking a lot of questions. 

Bellerive is the host golf course next year at this time for the Senior PGA Championship, which is now underway at the Harbor Shores golf course. Jeffery Kreafle is entering his fourth year as the GM and COO at Bellerive. It’s the first time he’s been involved with a golf course that’s slated to be the site of a major.  He’s trying to keep from being overwhelmed.
