US Open to return to Los Angeles in 2023

US Open to return to Los Angeles in 2023

The United States Golf Association announced Wednesday that the 2023 US Open will be played at the Los Angeles Country Club, the first time since 1948 the city will host the major championship.

The USGA also said the 2022 US Open will be at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts and the 2024 event will be hosted by Pinehurst Resort and Country Club in Pinehurst, North Carolina.

"We are elated to host our national championship at these three historic venues," said Thomas O`Toole, 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 US Open is one golf`s four major championships along with the PGA Championship, the British Open and The Masters.

It is the first time the US Open will be held in Los Angeles since Ben Hogan won the event in 1948 at the Riviera Country Club. The Riviera has played host to two PGA Championships in 1995 and 1983.

The tournament will run from June 15-18 on the LACC`s north course which opened in 1911 and was given an extensive facelift five years ago.

"The city loves to host major events," said LACC club president John Chulick. "This region, not having hosted the US Open for 75 years will be ecstatic about this."

Riviera had previously tried to woo the US Open back to its Pacific Palisades site but a lack of parking the course`s small layout are two drawbacks. 

Brookline will get its fourth US Open and Pinehurst will get its fourth in 25 years.

Some of the other previously announced US Opens include Oakmont (2016), Erin Hills (2017), Shinnecock Hills (2018) and Pebble Beach in 2019.
