Women’s US Open for the first time at Pebble Beach in 2023! – Planet Golf

Linked for nearly a century, the USGA and the Pebble Beach course announced Wednesday a long-term partnership that includes hosting the US Women’s Open for the first time next year.

The first public golf course to host a US Open in 1972, Pebble Beach will host the US Women’s Open for the first time in 2023.

After hosting 13 USGA championships over the past century (6 US Open, 5 US Amateur, 2 US Women’s Amateur), the Northern California course is committed to hosting an additional 10 internationally renowned events over the next 30 years.

The announcements made by the USGA on Wednesday further strengthen ties between the US governing body and the California course.

Until 2048

Therefore, four US Opens will be held here, in 2027, 2032, 2037 and 2044.

But also four future US Women’s Opens in 2023, 2035, 2040 and 2048 will take place on this mythical route on the Monterey Peninsula that has hosted US championships since 1929!

The shared goal is to ensure that both men and women can compete at the highest level on this iconic course in the US Open rotation.

“This long-term relationship with Pebble Beach, long considered a national gem, is a historic step for golf.” USGA Executive Director Mike Whan said. “In addition to participating in the greatness of our championships, the USGA and Pebble Beach are committed to working together to ensure a more diverse, inclusive and accessible game. We welcome this collaboration and share a common vision. »

It should also be noted that, for the first time, the US Senior Open and US Senior Women’s Open will be held back-to-back in the same location in 2030, at the nearby Spyglass Hill course attached to the Pebble Beach Resorts consortium.
