As the storied western Pennsylvania club wrapped up another successful hosting of the 2016 Championship, the United States Golf Association announced that it will only have to wait nine years for the next one. It was also announced that Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southhampton, N.Y., will host the 2026 U.S. Open.
As Oakmont (Pa.) Country Club drew praise for once again hosting an exemplary major championship despite significant weather and logistical challenges, the United States Golf Association (USGA) announced that the storied club outside of Pittsburgh will only have to wait nine years for its next U.S. Open.
The Open will return to Oakmont in 2025 for a record tenth time, the USGA announced.
“Bringing the U.S. Open Championship to Oakmont for the tenth time in 2025 is a testament to the quality of this fine golf course and the longevity of the strong relationship the USGA has with the club,” USGA president Diana Murphy said. “It is an honor to make this announcement during the 116th U.S. Open, when everyone here can celebrate the U.S. Open’s return to this iconic course in nine years.”
The announcement came as golfers were finishing up the weather-delayed second round on Saturday, June 18 as the course hosted its ninth U.S. Open. The tournament was completed on schedule by Sunday evening, with Dustin Johnson earning his first major championship win.
The USGA also announced that the tournament will be played at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, N.Y. in 2026. It will be the fifth time the tournament will be played there—the fourth will be in 2018, after the 2017 U.S. Open is played at Erin Hills in Erin, Wis.
