The U.S. Women's Open will be played at Pebble Beach for the first time in 2023.
“We are incredibly proud to bring the U.S. Women’s Open to Pebble Beach for the first time,” said USGA president Diana Murphy.
USGA CEO Mike Davis noted the association’s long ties with Pebble Beach.
“The USGA’s relationship with Pebble Beach dates to the 1929 U.S. Amateur and it has proven itself time and again during the 11 previous championships,” Davis said, describing the course as a national golf treasure.
This news will no doubt be greeted with excitment by the world's best female players, who very seldom get to play the most famous courses that the men play regularly.
The U.S. Women’s Open is scheduled for June 1-4 in 2023.
Bill Perocchi, CEO of Pebble Beach Company, said, “to be given the honor of hosting our first U.S. Women’s Open is truly special and exciting for all of us here at Pebble Beach.”
