Pebble Beach will host the US Women’s Open in 2023, marking the first time the event will be held there. The USGA made that announcement overnight, Australian time, in addition to naming the historic course on California’s Monterey Peninsula as the site for the 2027 US Open.
“We are incredibly proud to bring the US Women’s Open to Pebble Beach for the first time,” USGA president Diana Murphy said in a statement. “The USGA is committed to bringing our championships to golf’s greatest venues and the opportunity to have the best players in the world, female and male, compete at this iconic course will provide a fantastic showcase of the game. Our friends at the Pebble Beach Company have always been wonderful partners and we are excited for all of our upcoming championships with them.”
Not surprisingly, several LPGA stars were excited about the news.
Pebble Beach has hosted the men’s US Open five times (1972, 1982, 1992, 2000 and 2010) as well as the 1977 US PGA Championship. The course will also be the site of the 2019 US Open.
