Unlike the U.S. Open, it is very difficult to predict where the biggest championship in women's golf will go next. So what about from 2032 and beyond? Let’s make some guesses.
Newport Country Club, R.I. -- Newport has a special place in golf history as the host of the first U.S. Open and U.S. Amateur. It did a great job hosting in 2006, when Annika Sorenstam won her third Open in a playoff over Pat Hurst. It gets another crack at the Women's Open.
Cherry Hills, Colo. -- The 2005 U.S. Women's Open was one of the best ever played and ended in dramatic fashion. Known for its great finishes, Cherry Hills can't host the Open, but it sure can handle prestigious championships without the Open-sized footprint.
Streamsong (Red), Fla. -- This may seem somewhat outlandish -- who wants to play the Open in Florida in June? However, the USGA has showed a willingness to bump up the Women's Open for the proper venue. This would be a spectacular one.
Sebonack, N.Y. -- Sebonack is a modern gem that seemed well received in 2013. The USGA likes an occasional home game, so this would make some sense, pending club approval. Would love to see the Women's Open at National Golf Links or Shinnecock Hills, though.
Blackwolf Run, Wis. -- The Kohler course will get another run at a U.S. Women's Open, even if it wasn't much of a contest for Na Yeon Choi in 2012. The '98 Open, won by Se Ri Pak in a 20-hole playoff over Jenny Chausiriporn cemented its status.
