Portland Golf Club
Portland, Ore. • qualifying: Jun 04, 2018
Portland Golf Club, one of the oldest and more established clubs in the Pacific Northwest, is set to host U.S. Open sectional qualifying for the first time since 1998. The club has a deep history of hosting major events, including three USGA championships, the 1946 PGA Championship and the 1947 Ryder Cup.
Miller Barber won the first of his three U.S. Senior Open titles at Portland Golf Club in 1982. Seventeen years later Bill Ploeger captured the U.S. Senior Amateur crown, and in 2015, teenager Hannah O'Sullivan won the U.S. Women's Amateur. A year after he won the 1945 Portland Open at Portland G.C. with rounds of 65-69-63-64, Ben Hogan returned to the club to claim the PGA Championship, and the following year he led a strong American team to victory over Great Britain and Ireland in the Ryder Cup.
The Oregon Golf Association, one of the USGA's 59 recognized Allied Golf Associations, will conducted the qualifier.
