The U.S. Open is one of the more nomadic tournaments in professional sports.
The event has its favorites that it returns to more frequently than others. Oakmont Country Club has been the host nine times. Baltusrol Golf Club has hosted seven times. Several others have hosted four times or more.
But in 2023, the U.S. Open, one of the four major championships in men’s golf, will be headed someplace new. It will be the first time since 2017 that it is headed to a first-time host site, and only the fifth time since 2000 that it will be in a new location.
Where is the U.S. Open headed in 2023? Here’s what you need to know.
Where is the U.S. Open in 2023?

The Los Angeles area has not hosted the U.S. Open since 1948, when the event was held at the Riviera Country Club. Los Angeles has not hosted a men’s major since the 1995 PGA Championship, which was also held at Riviera.
