“The history of the USGA and American golf can’t be told without Chicago Golf Club, and just over 125 years after hosting its first USGA championship, we’re thrilled to announce our return for two additional significant events,” said John Bodenhamer, USGA chief championships officer. “With the tremendous support of its members and a world-class venue, we’re confident that Chicago Golf Club will deliver memorable moments and an opportunity for golf fans around the world to see one of the country’s finest golf venues.”

Founded in 1892, Chicago GC debuted the first 18-hole course in the United States in 1893 and became one of five founding member clubs of the USGA in 1894.

The course recently underwent a restoration to return the original fairway lines and dimensions of all 128 bunkers on the course, including the reinstallation of 13 bunkers after the club discovered maps that indicated they were part of Seth Raynor’s original 1923 layout.

“Hosting the best players in the world – men, women, amateur and professional – for USGA events is a point of pride for our club and a significant part of our long history,” said Herb Getz, Chicago Golf Club president. “We very much look forward to building upon that history and continuing our valued partnership with the USGA on an even larger stage well into the future.”

Recently, the USGA awarded Los Angeles Country Club the 2032 U.S. Women’s Open and the 2039 U.S. Open
