Cherry Hills Country Club has notified its members that the famed Colorado course will host the 2014 BMW Championship.
The Associated Press on Monday obtained a copy of an email sent to members outlining that Cherry Hills entered a contract to host the BMW Championship from Sept. 1-7, 2014.
The BMW Championship, which has long been played in Chicago, is the third in a series of four FedExCup playoff events. Cherry Hills officials did not return messages left by the AP on Monday.
A news conference is scheduled for Tuesday with club president John Elway, though details were not revealed.
Colorado has been without a big-time PGA event since The International ended its run in 2006.
The Chicago Tribune first reported the championship was leaving Chicago for Colorado.
