About The Course:
Caves Valley Golf Club opened in 1991. The exclusive club was established to attract major business executives to the area. Membership is limited to 600 people and only available through invitation. Members have included Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, Under Armour founder Kevin Plank, Baltimore Orioles legend Cal Ripken Jr., and businessman Michael Bloomberg.

The Club hosted the U.S. Senior Open in 2002, the International Crown in 2014, and the Constellation Senior Players Championship in 2017. It has never before hosted a PGA Tour event.MORE NEWS: NFL Week 2 AFC East Preview: 'Wasn’t That Last Week The Miami Dolphins Beat The New England Patriots, The Patriots Beat Themselves,' Says CBS Boston's Steve Burton
