Major championship venues: Future sites for the U.S. Women's Open golf tournament

These prestigious golf courses will prepare to host the United State's Golf Association's top championship for women.
Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club will host the 2022 U.S. Women's Open.

The 2021 U.S. Women's Open was a thriller, with 19-year-old Yuka Saso outlasting Japan's Hinako Shibuno in a playoff to deliver the Philippines its first-ever major championship in golf. For the first time in the event's history, the United States Golf Association (USGA) brought the event to the Lake Course at the Olympic Club, a longtime host of the men's U.S. Open. The sloping fairways and pitched greens of the Lake Course provided just as much challenge and drama for the ladies as in any of the course's prior turns at U.S. Open host.

In subsequent months, the USGA significantly raised the profile of its flagship championship for women in key ways. First, by securing a long-term title sponsor for the event in ProMedica, American golf's foremost organization locked in a sizable financial boost for the championship, with the 2022 edition's own purse jumping from an anticipated $5.5 million to $10 million after the sponsorship was announced. Further increases in the coming years seek to push the purse to $12 million.

Second, the USGA has made a conscious effort to further increase the quality of U.S. Women's Open host venues, in large part by bringing future championships to courses that have held the U.S. Open in the past (and will in the future as well). For example, Pebble Beach will host in 2023 and Erin Hills in 2025, followed by iconic venues like Riviera (2026), Oakmont (2028, 2038) and Merion (2034, 2046). These storied venues will mix well with established past U.S. Women's Open sites Pine Needles (2022) and Lancaster Country Club (2024).
