OAKMONT, Pa. — The USGA announced the awarding of future U.S. Opens to Oakmont and Shinnecock Hills.

Oakmont Country Club will host its record 10th national championship in 2025, while Shinnecock Hills Golf Club on Long Island has been given the 2026 event. Shinnecock Hills is already set to host the 2018 U.S. Open.

“Bringing the U.S. Open Championship to Oakmont for the 10th time in 2025 is testament to the quality of this fine golf course and the longevity of the strong relationship the USGA has with the club,” said Diana Murphy, USGA president. “It is an honor to make this announcement during the 116th U.S. Open when everyone here can celebrate the Open’s return to this iconic course in nine years.”

In addition to 2016, Oakmont previously hosted the U.S. Open in 1927, 1935, 1953, 1962, 1973, 1983, 1994 and 2007.

Shinnecock Hills will be hosting its sixth U.S. Open in 2026 and will be the only course to host the championship in three centuries. The club is one of five that founded the USGA, but the most recent Open there, in 2004 ended controversial because of the extreme conditions of the golf course.

"You can’t write the history of Shinnecock without writing the history of the USGA, and vice versa,” said Barrett N. Pickett, Shinnecock Hills president. “Our relationship today is stronger than ever. We are honored to host the 2026 U.S. Open, 130 years after our first in 1896.”

Both venues continue the trend back toward classic, time-tested venues admired for their architecture.
