The Olympic Club in San Francisco has been confirmed as the venue for the Ryder Cup in 2032.
The PGA of America also announced that the historic California course, which has staged the US Open five times, will also host the PGA Championship in 2028.
The Lake Course last staged a major championship in 2012, when Webb Simpson held off Graeme McDowell and Michael Thompson to win his first US Open by a single stroke.
The Ryder Cup has not been played on the west coast of the United States since 1959, when Sam Snead's home side cruised to a five-point victory over Great Britain and Ireland at Eldorado in Indian Wells.
PGA of America president Paul Levy said: "This is a special moment for our Association, to return the PGA Championship and the Ryder Cup to the west coast.
"We're excited to showcase The Olympic Club and its Lake Course, and combine them with the many tastes, sights and sounds that make San Francisco and the Bay Area so distinct."
Olympic Club president Dan Dillon added: "Our membership is elated to host the PGA Championship and the Ryder Cup, two more gems that add to the rich multi-sport history of America's oldest athletic club.
"Our collective anticipation for these signature events has already begun as we look forward to again welcoming golf's finest players to the famed Lake Course."
Whistling Straits in Wisconsin will be the venue for the next Ryder Cup in the US in 2020, with Bethpage Black in New York hosting the contest four years later, but the PGA of America have yet to confirm a venue for the 2028 edition.
