USGA AWARDS 2018 U.S. AMATEUR, 2019 U.S. OPEN TO PEBBLE BEACH
"We are thrilled to bring the U.S. Open and U.S. Amateur to this outstanding golf venue," said Jim Hyler, USGA president. "Pebble Beach offers a spectacular setting and boasts a long tradition of major championship golf.”
The 2018 U.S. Amateur and 2019 U.S. Open Championships will continue the long relationship between the USGA and Pebble Beach, dating back to the 1929 U.S. Amateur. These will be the 12th and 13th national championships conducted at Pebble Beach. This scheduling marks the second time that Pebble Beach will host these two championships in consecutive years. Previously, the course hosted the U.S. Open in 1972, 1982, 1992, 2000 and 2010; the U.S. Amateur in 1929, 1947, 1961 and 1999; and the U.S. Women's Amateur in 1940 and 1948.
Designed by Jack Neville and Douglas S. Grant, Pebble Beach will celebrate its centennial in 2019.
"There's a wonderful symmetry for the 2019 U.S. Open," said Thomas J. O'Toole, Jr., chairman of the USGA's championship committee. "Pebble Beach hosted our 100th U.S. Open in 2000. Now, we return to celebrate their centennial with our national championships."
"We take great pride in our relationship with the USGA and this announcement is truly a special moment in our history," said Bill Perocchi, the chief executive officer of the Pebble Beach Company. "To celebrate our centennial by conducting the U.S. Open and U.S. Amateur will be a thrill for everyone associated with Pebble Beach."
The USGA Executive Committee at a recent meeting in Pebble Beach approved awarding the 2018 U.S Amateur and 2019 U.S. Open to Pebble Beach. The final approval of these championships is pending contractual agreement.
In a news conference at the U.S. Open Championship naming the sites for the 2017 (Erin Hills in Erin, Wisconsin) and 2019 U.S. Open Championships, the USGA reaffirmed its commitment to bring the U.S. Open to venues that are open to the public. From 1999 through 2019, the U.S. Open will have been played at Pinehurst No. 2 (1999, 2005 and 2014), Pebble Beach (2000, 2010 and 2019), Bethpage State Park (2002 and 2009), Torrey Pines (2008), Chambers Bay (2015) and Erin Hills (2017), making a total of 11 U.S. Opens in 21 years on publicly accessible courses.
Prior to 2017, the U.S. Open will be conducted at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md. (2011); The Olympic Club in San Francisco (2012); Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pa. (2013); Pinehurst No. 2 in The Village of Pinehurst, N.C. (2014); Chambers Bay in University Place, Wash. (2015); and Oakmont Country Club in Pennsylvania (2016). The site of the 2018 U.S. Open has not been announced.
