The U.S. Open is the national golf championship of the United States. It was first played in 1895 and is conducted annually in June, ending on Father’s Day weekend. The championship is played at a different venue every year, and the courses that host the U.S. Open are among the best in the world, the “cathedrals of the game”. The U.S. Open is one of golf’s four major championships, along with The Masters (played in April), the PGA Championship (played in May), and The Open Championship (played overseas in July). In 2022 The Country Club will host its fourth U.S. Open Championship, having previously held the event in 1988, 1963, and 1913.
