“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,” said John Bodenhamer, USGA chief championships officer. “We look forward to witnessing the incredible talent and passion that will be on display in the coming years.”

The Country Club has previously hosted 17 USGA championships, second-most among venues to Merion, with 18. The U.S. Women’s Open in 2024 is the first time the club has hosted the women’s major championship. The club recently hosted the U.S. Open in 2022.

At the conclusion of the 2022 U.S. Open, the USGA recognized Director of Grounds Dave Johnson and his crew with the E.J. Marshall Platter.

Other USGA championships played at the club include six U.S. Amateurs (1910, 1922, 1934, 1957, 1982 and 2013) as well as the 1902, 1941 and 1995 U.S. Women’s Amateurs, the 1932 and 1973 Walker Cup Matches, the 1953 U.S. Girls’ Junior and the 1968 U.S. Junior Amateur. Additionally, the club was the site of the 1999 Ryder Cup Matches.

Founded in 1882, The Country Club is one of five founding member clubs of the USGA. The course started as a horse racetrack. The original team installed 18 holes in 1899 with an additional nine holes added in 1927. Rees Jones completed updates in preparation for the 1988 U.S. Open. Gil Hanse led a restoration in 2019.

Today, the club has three nine-hole courses – the Clyde, the Squirrel and the Primrose – with the Clyde and Squirrel nines making up the main course. The 2022 U.S. Open used the ‘Open Course,’ a composite course that consisted of 15 holes from the main course and three holes from the Primrose.
