PGA of America
Two venerable sites, Oak Hill and Southern Hills, have been selected by the United States Golf Association to host the 2027 U.S. Amateur and 2024 U.S. Women’s Amateur, respectively, the organization announced on Thursday.
Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford, N.Y., outside Rochester, has hosted three U.S. Opens (won by Curtis Strange, Lee Trevino and Cary Middlecoff) and three PGA Championships (won by Jack Nicklaus, Shaun Micheel and Jason Dufner). The 2023 PGA Championship is scheduled to be played there.
Charlie Coe and Hank Kuehne have won U.S. Amateurs at Oak Hill and the European team won the Ryder Cup there in 1995.
Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Okla., also has hosted three U.S. Opens (won by Tommy Bolt, Hubert Green and Retief Goosen) and four PGA Championships (won by Dave Stockton, Raymond Floyd, Nick Price and Tiger Woods).
It also has hosted one previous U.S. Women’s Amateur, in 1946, won by Babe Didrikson Zaharias.
“We are excited to return to both Oak Hill Country Club and Southern Hills Country Club, places with incredible USGA championship pedigrees that have produced storied U.S. Open champions,” John Bodenhamer, USGA senior managing director, Championships, said in a news release. “The memberships of these clubs and each community’s unbridled enthusiasm will lend themselves well to what we are sure will be two extraordinary championships.”
