Among the biggest events on Oak Tree National’s radar are the U.S. Open, PGA Championship, Ryder Cup and U.S. Amateur. All of those events’ future sites are already selected until at least 2019. Here’s a look at where those events are scheduled to be played in the coming years:
With the exception of a couple of courses, the U.S. Open is returning to a lot of familiar courses, so breaking into their regular rotation won’t be easy. But Oak Tree has formed a strong relationship with the tournament’s governing body, the USGA, over the past five years as it prepared for the U.S. Senior Open.
2015: Chambers Bay, University Place, Wash.
2016: Oakmont (Penn.) Country Club
2017: Erin Hills, Erin, Wisc.
2018: Shinnecock Hills (N.Y.) Golf Club
2019: Pebble Beach (Calif.) Golf Links
2020: Winged Foot, Mamaroneck, N.Y.
2021: Torrey Pines, La Jolla, Calif.
After the 1988 PGA Championship, Oak Tree was in good standing with the PGA of America, but the course’s bankruptcy derailed plans to come back in 1994. Still, the course hosted the 2006 Senior PGA and could get back in the rotation for more events.
