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, is currently a host of the PGA Championship (2019) 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.
