0 USGA names future US Open Championship sites

usgaThe United States Golf Association (USGA) has named The Country Club in Brookline, The Los Angeles Country Club and Pinehurst Resort & Country Club as the host sites for the 2022, 2023 and 2024 U.S. Open Championships, respectively.

"We are elated to host our national championship at these three historic venues," says Thomas J. O'Toole Jr., president of the USGA. "Each one is located in a region where golf and sports are celebrated, and we have already felt tremendous community support. We look forward to the test of golf that each of these classic designs will present to the world's best players."

The 2022 U.S. Open, to be held June 16-19, will be the fourth U.S. Open at The Country Club and the 17th USGA championship held there. It also hosted the 1999 Ryder Cup, won by the USA in a rousing final-day rally capped by Justin Leonard's clinching putt.

"We are thrilled to bring the 122nd U.S. Open Championship to such a storied golf course and a great club, one of the five clubs that founded the USGA in 1894," says O'Toole.

The 2023 U.S. Open will be held June 15-18, and The Los Angeles Country Club will join the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades and Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego as the third U.S. Open venue in Southern California.

"This George Thomas-designed gem, the North Course at Los Angeles Country Club, was recently restored by Gil Hanse, architect of the 2016 Olympic golf course in Rio de Janeiro," says O'Toole. "It's a perfect opportunity to take the U.S. Open to Los Angeles."

The 2024 U.S. Open, to be held June 13-16 on Pinehurst's Course No. 2, will mark the fourth U.S. Open and 11th USGA championship at the venue.

"Pinehurst has elevated itself to one of the great and historic places in golf in this country," said O'Toole. "Some say it's our St. Andrews - it's certainly something special, and that's why we're going back there for the 2024 U.S. Open."

The 2016 U.S. Open will be played June 16-19 at Oakmont Country Club. Other future U.S. Open sites are: June 15-18, 2017, at Erin Hills; June 14-17, 2018, at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club; June 13-16, 2019, at Pebble Beach; June 18-21, 2020, at Winged Foot; and June 17-20, 2021, at Torrey Pines.
