The U.S. Golf Association made it official on Thursday when it announced Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., will host the 2017 U.S. Women's Open.
“It is my great honor to have Trump National Golf Club Bedminster host the 2017 U.S. Women’s Open,” said Donald J. Trump, chairman and president of The Trump Organization. “We designed this course to appeal to and to challenge the greatest golfers in the world, and having the most prestigious event in women’s golf at this course makes our plans complete.”
The championship will be played July 13-16.
The club has two 18-hole courses – the Old Course, designed by Tom Fazio and opened in 2004, and the New Course, designed by nephew Tom Fazio II for play in 2008. The USGA has not determined how the club will be utilized for the championship. It could use one of the two courses or create a composite routing blending both courses.
This will be the third USGA championship for the club. Trump National hosted the 2009 U.S. Junior Amateur and Girls Junior Amateur championships on both courses.
