Major championship venues: Future sites for the U.S. Open golf tournament



The future sites for the U.S. Open go back to tried-and-true venues, but also continue the theme of brand new hosts, or bringing old hosts back into the mix after a long absence.

The USGA broke the mold in the 1990s by adding more public-access and municipal courses back into the mix. Two of those courses were nearly brand new upon announcement, Chambers Bay and Erin Hills.

California is well represented in the future venues with not only Pebble Beach and Torrey Pines but a brand new country club in Los Angeles.

One name missing from the USGA's future venues is Bethpage Black. That infamous New York City muni, one of the toughest in the country, will host the 2019 PGA Championship and 2024 Ryder Cup Matches instead.

The USGA has announced its future sites for our national championship thru 2027. Here is what we know so far, and we'll update when we hear more.

West Coast venues allow for television coverage into prime time on the East Coast. Bigger ad $.

I agree with most of these posts. USGA is all about rewarding East and West coasts. Oakland Hills is a deserving site with it's great history, but hasn't hosted since 1996 and isn't even on the schedule for next 10 years. Chambers Bay was an absolute joke, as was Erin Hills. Let's go back to the great traditional courses, Oakland Hills, Merion, Baltusrol, Cherry Hills, etc.

Why not Olympia Fields, Medina, Hazeltine, or Southern Hills? Maybe a midwest location in the 21st century.

Any plans for USGA to not make this mostly a California and New York/Boston area thing.

In next 10 years its all East and West Cost Open not a U.S. Open

WILL THEY EVER CONSIDER Oakland Hills, or do the fear it's to easy?

Too easy. Hazeltine could work.
