For the first time in U.S. Open history, a sectional qualifier will take place in Canada at RattleSnake Point Golf Club in Milton, Ontario. The 36-hole competition will be conducted on both the CopperHead and SideWinder courses. It is being held a few days prior to the RBC Canadian Open at Hamilton Golf and Country Club.

Architect Thomas McBroom designed each 18-hole course as a distinctive test. A big course with robust character, the CopperHead wanders through valleys and woodlands with the occasional water pond or creek to avoid. The links-style SideWinder follows the rolling terrain of the region with plenty of humps and bumps that challenge the golfer’s imagination and shot-making.

McBroom created massive greens protected by gigantic bunkers on both courses, and the yardage can be stretched beyond 7,000 yards. In 2010, RattleSnake Point Golf Club hosted the Canadian PGA Seniors’ Championship won by Jim Rutledge. It is also a regular qualifying venue for the PGA Tour's RBC Canadian Open.
