119th US Open returns to Pebble Beach
The golfing world will be flocking to one of the most iconic links courses - Pebble Beach on the Monterey Peninsula, as it plays host to the 119th US Open Championship. Pebble Beach is unanimously ranked as the top public course in the USA and celebrated as one of the most beautiful places in the world.
The USGA’s relationship with Pebble Beach goes back nearly a century. Just 10 years after Pebble Beach opened, it was selected to host its first USGA championship— the 1929 U.S. Amateur. Pebble Beach has gone on to host 11 USGA championships, and that total will reach 13 after the 2018 U.S. Amateur and 2019 U.S. Open.
Pebble Beach made U.S. Open history in 1972 when it became the first championship played on a course that is open to the public. The U.S. Open has since returned in 1982, 1992, 2000 and 2010.
“Pebble Beach is a magical place,” said Tom O’Toole, chairman of the USGA championship committee. “It is one of our most treasured U.S. Open sites.”
