It will be the third USGA championship held at the New Jersey club; the USGA also announced record entries for this year’s Women’s Open at Blackwolf Run.
The 2017 U.S. Women’s Open Championship will be held at Trump National Golf Club Bedminster in Bedminster, N.J., the United States Golf Association (USGA) has announced. The tournament will be held from July 13-16 in that year.
The 2017 tournament will mark the third USGA championship held at the club, which concurrently hosted the 2009 U.S. Junior Amateur and Girls’ Junior championships
“The U.S. Women’s Open is the most sought-after title in women’s golf,” said USGA Women’s Committee Chairman Martha Lang. “We are quite confident that our partners at Trump National Golf Club will provide a course truly worthy of this prestigious championship.”
The 2017 tournament will take place on Trump’s Old and New courses. The Old course, which opened for play in 2004, features 500 acres of farmland, pastures, water hazards and green complexes. The New course opened in 2008 and runs along the perimeter of the Old course.
The USGA also announced that the 2012 U.S. Women’s Open, which will be played at Blackwolf Run in Kohler, Wis., from July 5-8, has received a record number of entries, with 1,364 women aged 11-61 filing for entry.
This year’s total easily surpasses the previous one set in 2010, when 1,296 participants played at Oakmont Country Club in Pennsylvania. Entries from 47 states and 44 countries were received for this year’s tournament, with 85 golfers exempt from sectional qualifying for the championship.
Though the site for the 2016 U.S. Women’s Open has yet to be determined, the championship will be played at Sebonack Golf Club in Southampton, N.Y., from June 27-30, 2013; at Pinehurst Resort (No. 2) in the Village of Pinehurst, N.C., from June 19-22, 2014; and at Lancaster (Pa.) Country Club from July 9-12, 2015.
