The U.S. Amateur Championship
at Pebble Beach

 

AUGUST 13-19, 2018

The U.S. Amateur Returns to Pebble Beach in 2018

By the time Pebble Beach Golf Links hosted its second United States Amateur Championship in 1947, USGA President Charles Littlefield walked away saying, “If I was going to be President of the United States Golf Association any longer, I’d hold them all here. This is the grandest place to hold a golf tournament I’ve ever seen.”

The U.S. Amateur returns to Pebble Beach in 2018 for a fifth time, and the first since 1999. Pebble Beach has been the stunning stage of everything from Bobby Jones’ upset loss in 1929, to Jack Nicklaus’ dominant win in 1961.

Spyglass Hill will also co-host the championship during medal play for a second time, introducing the game’s rising stars to one of golf’s most demanding tests.

A Proud and Enduring Partnership

Pebble Beach Resorts & The USGA

The USGA’s relationship with Pebble Beach goes back nearly a century. Just 10 years after Pebble Beach opened, it was selected to host its first USGA championship— the 1929 U.S. Amateur.

Pebble Beach has gone on to host 11 USGA championships, and that total will reach 13 after the 2018 U.S. Amateur and 2019 U.S. Open.

Pebble Beach hosted the U.S. Amateur in 1929, 1947, 1961 and 1999, and the U.S. Women’s Amateur in 1940 and 1948. Pebble Beach then made U.S. Open history in 1972 when it became the first championship played on a course that is open to the public. The U.S. Open has since returned in 1982, 1992, 2000 and 2010, and will be played again in 2019.

In June 2010, the USGA awarded Pebble Beach its fifth U.S. Amateur — the upcoming 2018 championship. The U.S. Amateur is both an impressive test and a proving ground for future PGA TOUR stars, with past winners including Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus.
