Following the U.S. Open’s return to Los Angeles, the United States Golf Association (USGA) announced that Riviera Country Club, in Pacific Palisades, Calif., will host the 131st U.S. Open Championship in 2031.

“Riviera Country Club is a truly spectacular course that holds a special place in the game’s history,” said John Bodenhamer, USGA chief championships officer. “We are thrilled to bring the U.S. Open back to the site of such historic moments for golf and the USGA and look forward to writing a new chapter in 2031.”

The 2031 U.S. Open will be the fifth USGA championship held at the club. Riviera previously hosted the 1948 U.S. Open, the 1998 U.S. Senior Open, and the 2017 U.S. Amateur. Superintendent Marshall Dick and his crew will also host the club’s first U.S. Women’s Open in 2026.

Riviera currently serves as host of the Genesis Invitational. The club also hosted two PGA Championships in 1983 and 1995. Riviera will also serve as the host of the men’s and women’s golf competitions for the 2028 Olympics.
