The relationship between the USGA and Pebble Beach began in 1929 with the 33rd U.S. Amateur Championship. The resort has played host to 13 USGA championships during its first 100 years of existence, including six U.S. Opens, five U.S. Amateurs and two U.S. Women’s Amateurs, with another 10 championships to come over the next 25 years.

“We are honored to deepen our long-standing partnership with the USGA, which will benefit the game of golf for years to come,” David Stivers, Pebble Beach Company CEO, said. “We are proud that Pebble Beach Golf Links was the first public golf course to host a U.S. Open in 1972, and that golfers around the world have the opportunity to play Pebble Beach and walk in the footsteps of champions. This partnership ensures that the legacy of championship golf on this historic course will continue long into the future and leave a lasting impact on the game.”

“This relationship with Pebble Beach, long considered a national treasure, is a historic step forward for golf,” Mike Whan, CEO of USGA, said. “In addition to elevating our Open championships, the USGA and Pebble Beach are committed to working together to ensure a more diverse, welcoming and accessible game. We couldn’t be more thankful for their collaboration and like-minded vision.”

Beyond the future championships, the USGA and Pebble Beach are developing community-based programs to create internships and other career opportunities for the next generation of industry leaders. The expanded relationship also includes a joint initiative with the USGA’s Green Section to invest in turfgrass and water conservation research, contributing to the entities’ shared goal of creating enjoyable golf experiences that are environmentally and economically sustainable.

“Through this relationship, we aim to foster opportunities for future greats of the game, nurture golf’s next generation of leaders and develop new technologies for a sustainable future, all while crowning champions who will follow the legends who walked these hallowed grounds before them,” Whan said.
