The United States Golf Association (USGA) has announced that The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts, will host four golf championships over the next few decades. This includes two professional majors, as well as the U.S. Girls’ Junior and U.S. Women’s Open.

During a news conference at The Country Club, USGA chief championships officer John Bodenhamer expressed excitement about the partnership. He stated, “We are thrilled to return to The Country Club and bring four exceptional championships to a venue with such rich history. This partnership with The Country Club gives juniors, amateurs, and professionals alike the opportunity to vie for a USGA championship and etch their names in golfing history at one of the nation’s most iconic venues. We look forward to witnessing the incredible talent and passion that will be on display in the coming years.”

The championships scheduled to take place at The Country Club include the 2030 U.S. Girls’ Junior, 2034 U.S. Amateur, 2038 U.S. Open, and 2045 U.S. Women’s Open. While The Country Club has previously hosted 17 USGA championships, these upcoming events will mark the first time the women’s major championship will be held at the venue.

The most recent men’s U.S. Open was held at The Country Club in June 2022, with Matthew Fitzpatrick of England emerging as the victor. Winning by a one-stroke margin, Fitzpatrick secured his first major title at the same course where he had also triumphed in the U.S. Amateur nine years earlier.

The Country Club, founded in 1882, is one of the five founding member clubs of the USGA. Its rich history includes hosting various USGA championships, such as six U.S. Amateurs, the U.S. Women’s Amateur, the U.S. Girls’ Junior, and the U.S. Junior Amateur. The club has also been the site of the Ryder Cup Matches, won by Team USA in 1999.

With its storied past and iconic status, The Country Club provides a fitting backdrop for these upcoming championships. Golf enthusiasts and players alike can look forward to witnessing exceptional talent and exciting competition in the years to come.
