The United States Golf Association (USGA) announced that Winged Foot Golf Club’s west course in Westchester County, N.Y., will host the 2028 U.S. Open.

“Winged Foot has provided the backdrop for some of the most dramatic moments in the history of our sport, with many of golf’s legendary champions being crowned on the club’s iconic West Course,” said John Bodenhamer, USGA chief championships officer. “We strive to provide players with the greatest stages on which to compete for a national championship, and there are few stages as grand as Winged Foot.”

The 128th U.S. Open will mark the seventh time the championship is at the course — it most recently hosted the event in 2020. It will also be the 14th USGA championship hosted by the club. During its 100-year history, the club has been the site of six U.S. Opens, two U.S. Amateurs, two U.S. Women’s Opens, one U.S. Senior Open, one U.S. Amateur Four-Ball and one Walker Cup Match. In addition, Winged Foot hosted the 1997 PGA Championship.

In 2028, Winged Foot will match Baltusrol Golf Club, in Springfield, N.J., as the second-most visited U.S. Open host site. Oakmont (Pa.) Country Club has hosted the championship nine times, with its 10th scheduled for 2025. The 128th edition of the U.S. Open will be the 22nd contested in New York, the most of any state.
