Brookline’s The Country Club to Host Four Future USGA Championships: A Revisit to Iconic Venue

Key Points:

• The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts to host four upcoming USGA championships.
• This is a return to a venue with a rich history in golfing, having previously hosted 17 USGA championships.
• It marks the first time the U.S. Women’s Open will be held at The Country Club.

In a recent announcement, the United States Golf Association (USGA) disclosed that The Country Club situated in Brookline, Mass., will be the site of four forthcoming USGA championships. These events encompass the 2030 U.S. Girls’ Junior, the 2034 U.S. Amateur, the 2038 U.S. Open, and the 2045 U.S. Women’s Open.

John Bodenhamer, USGA’s chief championship officer, expressed excitement about this return to The Country Club. The venue, teeming with golfing history, provides the participants, be they juniors, amateurs, or professionals, an unequalled chance to etch their names into golf’s chronicles.

Regarded as one of the country’s most iconic venues, The Country Club demonstrates a noteworthy legacy, having hosted 17 USGA championships in the past. This positions it merely one championship behind Merion, the venue with the highest number of USGA championships hosted.

Yet another milestone is set for The Country Club in 2045 when it will host the U.S. Women’s Open for the first time. Matt Fitzpatrick, a former victor at the venue, solidified the Club’s status as a revered venue after his one-stroke triumph in the 2022 U.S. Open.

The upcoming championships at The Country Club pay homage to previous successful events, such as the three U.S. Opens held there. All of these U.S. Opens were decided in nail-biting 18-hole playoffs. The Country Club is looking forward to the 2038 U.S. Open that will fall on the 125th anniversary of Francis Ouimet’s famous victory as the first amateur to win a U.S. Open.

Lyman Bullard, president of The Country Club, is thrilled to extend the venue’s fruitful alliance with the USGA. This enduring partnership not only signifies a deep-rooted tradition of championship golf but also opens the floor for the next generation of players to etch their names into the annals of golfing history.

The Country Club, founded in 1882, stands proud as one of the five founding member clubs of the USGA. With its roots as a horse racetrack, the venue eventually evolved into the legendary golf course that it is today – a testament to the tireless work of club members and architects. Today, it boasts three nine-hole courses – the Clyde, the Squirrel, and the Primrose – each holding a unique blend of charm and challenge that will undoubtedly test golfers of all calibers in future competitions.
