Hey, Siri: Play the hits!
That’s basically what the USGA has decided to do with its future U.S. Open host courses. It’s going to play all the hits, over and over.
After the 2010s came and went with U.S. Open stops at Congressional, Chambers Bay and Erin Hills — a trio of less-heralded courses — the 2020s will once again feature visits to Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, Oakmont, etc.
Thanks in part to the USGA establishing a new headquarters down in Pinehurst, its crown jewel event will be hosted nearby at Pinehurst’s No. 2 course with increased regularity. The announcement of that move came with many future declarations. The U.S. Open will visit Pinehurst in 2024, 2029, 2035, 2041 and 2047. Get your calendars out, folks.
The list of the next seven U.S. Open host courses can be found below, with only one year remaining up for grabs this decade.
