Pebble Beach Golf Links in Monterey, Calif., will continue to play host to some of the top moments in golf after it was named Wednesday as a third “anchor site” for future U.S. Open tournaments.

In addition to receiving four U.S. Open dates through 2044, the legendary course along the Pacific Ocean will play host to four U.S. Women’s Opens through 2048.

Players to win the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach include Jack Nicklaus (1972), Tom Watson (1982), Tom Kite (1992), Tiger Woods (2000), England’s Graeme McDowell (2010) and Gary Woodland (2019).

The course will now hold the U.S. Open in 2027, 2032, 2037 and 2044. The venue’s first U.S. Women’s Open will be contested in 2023, with the event set to return in 2035, 2040 and 2048.

Already named as an anchor site for multiple future U.S. Opens were Pinehurst No. 2 in North Carolina and Oakmont Country Club near Pittsburgh. Pinehurst will host the U.S. Open in 2024, 2029, 2035, 2041 and 2047. Oakmont will have it in 2025, 2033, 2042 and 2049.

There are only 10 open years for the U.S. Open until 2051, with a fourth anchor site possible.

This year’s U.S. Open will take place at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass., June 16-19. Spain’s Jon Rahm won the 2021 U.S. Open on the Torrey Pines South Course at San Diego.
