124th U.S. Open

Pinehurst No. 2



Sunnehanna Country Club

Johnstown, PA, United States Private

Overview

Sunnehanna was designed by A.W. Tillinghast in the early 1920s (it opened in 1923). The club is located on a beautiful property east of Pittsburgh with gentle rise and fall and elevated views of the surrounding Allegheny Mountains. Ron Forse oversaw a remodel of the course in the early 2000s that included bunker renovations and significant tree removal to open up sightlines across the property. More recently, Bruce Hepner, the 13th architect of record to work on the course, has continued the process of enhancing Tillinghast's orignal design by rebuilding all bunkers and tees, adjusting fairway lines and selectively removing additional trees. The club is home to the Sunnehanna Amateur, one of the top events since the 1950s that has attracted young players like Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods
