Lancaster (Pa.) Country Club has been selected by the USGA as the host site for the 79th U.S. Women’s Open in 2024. The championship, considered the ultimate test in women’s golf, will be held May 27-June 2.
The 2024 U.S. Women’s Open will be the second USGA championship contested at Lancaster Country Club. In Gee Chun of the Republic of Korea edged fellow Korean Amy Yang by one stroke to win the 2015 U.S. Women’s Open, her first of two career major championships. The championship set records for U.S. Women’s Open entries and attendance.
“The 2015 U.S. Women’s Open was one of the most successful in the championship’s history,” said Mike Davis, CEO of the USGA. “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.”
Designed by William Flynn and opened in 1920, Lancaster was renovated in 2007 under the guidance of Ron Forse, who restored many of the original design features. Along with hosting the U.S. Women’s Open in 2015, the course was a local qualifying site for the 2008 U.S. Women’s Open, and it also hosted the 2002 and 2007 Pennsylvania Opens, the 1990 and 2005 Pennsylvania Women’s Amateurs and seven Pennsylvania State Amateur Championships.
“To host the most prestigious event in women’s golf for the second time is something our club and membership is especially proud of, and we’re honored the USGA accepted our invitation to host the U.S. Women’s Open in 2024,” said Ted Bloom, president of Lancaster Country Club. “We have incredibly special memories from 2015, when we crowned a worthy champion in In Gee Chun, someone who has become an important member of our community. We look forward to working with the USGA and the entire Lancaster community to host another memorable championship in just a few short years.”
