The 2024 US Women's Open is returning to Lancaster Country Club in southeastern Pennsylvania, the USGA announced Nov. 27.
The William Flynn-designed course last hosted the US Women's Open in 2015, when In Gee Chun held off Amy Yang to win her first major championship. The event was well-attended and well-received by the broader golf community, making it a slam dunk to once again host the biggest event in women's golf.
“The 2015 US Women’s Open was one of the most successful in the championship’s history,” said USGA CEO Mike Davis. “The golf course is one of the best in the United States, and the community’s support for golf is record-setting. We can’t wait to return to crown the 79th U.S. Women’s Open champion.”
Lancaster Country Club opened in 1920 and was restored in 2007 by Ron Forse. The club has been a common host of Pennsylvania state championships, but the 2015 Women's Open was the first USGA championship for the club.
Chun has kept close ties to the club in the years since her major breakthrough, partnering with the club's membership to create the In Gee Chun Lancaster Country Club Educational Foundation, which provides scholarships for local students seeking to achieve their educational and vocational goals.
“I am very excited for Lancaster Country Club to host the 2024 USWO, the site of my first win in the US, which gave me the opportunity to play on the LPGA Tour,” said Chun. “The golf course is a great challenge, and the 2015 event had amazing crowds. I have no doubt the community will again embrace this great championship.”
