Officials from the PGA of America and Trump National Golf Club of Washington, D.C. had nothing to say Tuesday about the status of the 2017 Senior PGA Championship — scheduled for May of that year at the Sterling, Va. club — in light of the decision to move this year’s Grand Slam of Golf out of another Trump National course in Los Angeles.

The abrupt move of the Grand Slam, scheduled for Oct. 20-21, came weeks after the real estate mogul made controversial remarks about Mexican immigrants during the announcement of his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination.

In a statement, the PGA of America said it met with Trump on Monday. “[T]he parties mutually agreed that it is in the best interest of all not to conduct the 2015 PGA Grand Slam of Golf at Trump National-Los Angeles,” the statement said. “The PGA of America is in the process of exploring options . . . and will comment further at the appropriate time.”

Trump’s office also released a statement that said, “Due to the controversy surrounding statements made by Mr. Trump having to do with illegal immigrants pouring into the United States from Mexico and other parts of the world, Mr. Trump does not want his friends at the PGA of America to suffer any consequences or backlash with respect to the Grand Slam of Golf.”

In response to an e-mail regarding the 2017 Senior PGA Championship — which was awarded to Trump National Golf Club-Washington, D.C. last year — PGA of America spokesman Jamie Carbone said the organization would have no further comment, but added, “Going forward, we will continue to make decisions based on a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion.”

Kevin Morris, the Trump club’s director of golf, said the club also had no comment at this time.

Trump bought the former Lowes Island Club in 2009 and oversaw an extensive renovation of its two courses. The newly christened Trump National was awarded the 2017 Senior PGA Championship in May 2014, the same day another Trump National course in Bedminster, N.J., was awarded the 2022 PGA Championship. The status of that tournament is also uncertain at this time.

“Having the PGA is a very, very big deal,” Trump said at the May 2014 news conference announcing those tournaments. “So it’s very important to me. It’s a great honor for me, and it’s a tremendous honor for both of these clubs.”

Many of Trump’s enterprises have been under attack since his controversial comments last month, in which he referred to Mexican immigrants as criminals and rapists. NBC and Univision dropped one of his beauty pageants, and Macy’s announced it would no longer carry his branded products. On Monday, ESPN announced it was moving its July 14 Celebrity Golf Classic out of Trump National-Los Angeles.
