Oakmont, Shinnecock Awarded Future U.S. Opens

While Oakmont Country Club hosts this week’s U.S. Open just outside of Pittsburgh, the prestigious course received news that it will host the 2025 edition of the country’s national championship. It will be the 10th time the tournament is played on the H.C. Fownes design, the most of any host in the event’s history.

“Bringing the U.S. Open Championship to Oakmont for the 10th time in 2025 is testament to the quality of this fine golf course and the longevity of the strong relationship the USGA has with the club,” said Diana Murphy, president of the USGA. “It is an honor to make this announcement during the 116th U.S. Open when everyone here can celebrate the Open’s return to this iconic course in nine years.

Oakmont’s 17 USGA championships are tied for second-most among U.S. clubs, behind only Merion Golf Club, which has hosted 18.

On top of the Oakmont announcement, Shinnecock Hills Golf Club was officially awarded the 2026 U.S. Open. Shinnecock hosted the 2004 U.S. Open and will be the championship’s site once again in 2018.

“In keeping with our goal of providing the most comprehensive test in championship golf, we are also honored to announce a return to Shinnecock Hills Golf Club for the 2026 U.S. Open Championship,” Murphy said. “Four previous U.S. Opens there have yielded memorable competitions and worthy champions such as Raymond Floyd, Corey Pavin and Retief Goosen. New York metropolitan area golf fans can anticipate another exciting chapter in their region’s golf history in 2026.”


Other future U.S. Open sites are: June 15-18, 2017, at Erin Hills in Erin, Wis.; June 14-17, 2018, at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, N.Y.; June 13-16, 2019, at Pebble Beach (Calif.) Golf Links; June 18-21, 2020, at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, N.Y.; June 17-20, 2021, at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, Calif.; June 16-19, 2022, at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass.; June 15-18, 2023, at The Los Angeles (Calif.)
