What better way to celebrate the 125th playing of the U.S. Open than by staging it at the venue that has hosted the most Opens? Oakmont will host the championship for a record 10th time in 2025, three times more than any other club. It will also be the club's 17th USGA championship, which ranks one behind fellow Pennsylvania venue Merion Golf Club for the most all time. Henry Clay (H.C.) Fownes designed Oakmont to challenge the best golfers in the world and that philosophy hasn’t changed since Oakmont member S. Davidson Herron defeated Bob Jones in the championship match of the 1919 U.S. Amateur. Oakmont continues to be one of the most challenging championship layouts, most recently on display in Dustin Johnson’s 2016 U.S. Open victory.
It was announced in August, 2021, that Oakmont would also host future U.S. Opens in 2034, 2042, and 2049, along with a number of other USGA championships, including the U.S. Women's Open in 2028 and 2038, the Walker Cup in 2033, and the U.S. Women's Amateur in 2046.
