That’s right, you read that correctly, we have got our grubby little hands on the list of the future U.S. Open venues through to 2030. We also want to have a crack at guessing where it will be held after that.
It seems like just yesterday that the Oakmont hosted Open finished and what an end it was too with Dustin Johnson taking honors with a 69 on the Sunday and a come from behind win over Jim Furyk to take his first major title. Oakmont was special because of it’s atmosphere and surrounding nature. Walking the course with the players as we did for those four days really gave you goosebumps with excitement for what was to come.
In 2017 the Open will be rolling onto Erin Hills Golf Course which is situation up in Wisconsin. The 117th Open decided on a relatively newer course that was only opened just over 10 years ago. Here is the complete list after that:
- 2018 — Shinnecock Hills
- 2019 — Pebble Beach
- 2020 — Winged Foot
- 2021 — Torrey Pines
- 2022 — The Country Club
- 2023 — Los Angeles Country Club
- 2024 — Pinehurst No. 2
- 2025 — Oakmont Country Club
- 2026 — Shinnecock Hills
We also have some hot tips for after 2026 too. Let’s start with a Florida based course because we strongly believe that it’s their turn to host the tournament. One of our favorite courses there is the TPC Sawgrass. And who could forget this was where a young Tiger Woods won his first Amateur championship over 36 years ago.
Our other favorite is Pebble Beach and the reason for this is the Open’s love for the course, it seems to be coming back here every 10 years or so. Have you heard of the Olympic Club Course? Well this is a great little part of the west coast golf circuit and since there are so many Opens held on the east coast, we thought it was time to switch over and have some on the west side.
Let us know in the comments where you think the Opens should be held and why.
