The future U.S. Open venues have been locked up through 2026, with the USGA announcing that Oakmont Country Club will host the 2025 U.S. Open and Shinnecock Hills will host the 2026 U.S. Open.

Oakmont Country Club, just outside of Pittsburgh, hosted for the ninth time in 2016, and it's typical that the USGA announces a potential return to a site toward the tail end of that week. It makes sense. Oakmont has hosted the U.S. Open more than any other venue, and it's been doing it since 1927 at this Henry Fownes classic.

Shinnecock Hills, in the Hamptons of New York, is a fascinating announcement at this time. The Long Island club was already on the docket to host in 2018, 14 years after the disaster of 2004. Retief Goosen took just 11 putts for the final nine holes in scorched-earth conditions to win his second U.S. Open title.

These traditional U.S. Open venues round out the next 10 years of U.S. Open hosts:

2017 - Erin Hills, Wis.
2018 - Shinnecock Hills, N.Y.
2019 - Pebble Beach, Calif.
2020 - Winged Foot, N.Y.
2021 - Torrey Pines, Calif.
2022 - Country Club at Brookline, Mass.
2023 - Los Angeles Country Club, Calif.
2024 - Pinehurst (No. 2), N.C.
2025 - Oakmont Country Club, Penn.
2026 - Shinnecock Hills, N.Y.

Pinehurst, Oakmont and Shinnecock Hills come after back-to-back somewhat experimental venues. Brookline was a long-time U.S. Open host into the '80s, but it was discarded and had become arguably too short to host an Open. Los Angeles Country Club has never hosted a U.S. Open, although its pedigree certainly makes it an ideal choice as a course, if not host city.
