Pebble Beach named as host for women’s and men’s US Opens
Pebble Beach Golf Links has been named as the site for the 2023 US Women’s Open and 2027 US Open Championships.
It will be the 14th and 15th United States Golf Association (USGA) championships in the course’s storied history.
Pebble Beach, which is already scheduled to host the 2018 US Amateur and 2019 US Open Championships, will stage the 78th US Women’s Open – and its first – from June 1-4, 2023.
The 127th US Open – the seventh at Pebble Beach – will be contested from June 17-20, 2027.
The legendary course on the Monterey Peninsula, designed by Jack Neville and Douglas Grant and opened in 1919, has produced several of the game’s most memorable moments in its previous five US Opens.
Jack Nicklaus’s one-iron tee shot that struck the flagstick in 1972, Tom Watson’s chip-in to thwart Nicklaus in 1982, Tom Kite’s pitch-in en route to victory in 1992 and Tiger Woods’ record 15-stroke victory in 2000 are all stamped in the game’s lore.
“We are incredibly proud to bring the US Women’s Open to Pebble Beach for the first time,” said Diana Murphy, president of the USGA.
“The USGA is committed to bringing our championships to golf’s greatest venues and the opportunity to have the best players in the world, female and male, compete at this iconic course will provide a fantastic showcase of the game.
During the course’s 98-year history, it has hosted five US Opens, four US Amateurs, two US Women’s Amateurs and one PGA Championship. These will be the 14th and 15th USGA championships contested on the course, moving it to fourth all-time among host sites.
The 1972 US Open Championship at Pebble Beach was the first to be played on a course that is open to the public. It is one of six public-access courses to host a US Open.
