HOST VENUE: Founded in 1903 by industrialist Henry Clay Fownes, Oakmont Country Club was the first golf course in the United States to be recognized as a National Historic Landmark. Oakmont has previously hosted 15 USGA championships, including five U.S. Amateurs, three PGA Championships, two U.S. Women’s Opens, and eight U.S. Opens (1927, 1935, 1953, 1962, 1973, 1983, 1994 and 2007). This accounts for the most major championships and the most U.S. Opens of any American club.
