The USGA released on Wednesday its qualifying sites for the U.S. Women's Open. The championship will be contested June 2-5 at Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club in Southern Pines, North Carolina.

Qualifying will be conducted across 26 sites, including those in South Korea, England and Japan. The 36-hole qualifiers are scheduled to take place between April 19 and May 16, and are open to female professionals and amateurs with a handicap index not exceeding 2.4. Online entry applications opens Feb. 16 and continues through April 6.

The USGA accepted 1,595 entries for last year's U.S. Women's Open at The Olympic Club in San Francisco, California. Qualifying was canceled in 2020 because of the pandemic and has not been contested internationally the last two years.

USWO purse nearly doubles as sponsor added

The U.S. Women’s Open is getting a presenting sponsor, five additional host sites and most importantly, a huge purse increase.

Hilary Lunke (2003) and Birdie Kim (2005) are the lone two players to win the U.S. Women's Open after going through qualifying.
