Pebble Beach will long remain one of golf’s most important stages. Long time.

The United States Golf Association announced Wednesday that it will hold four more US Opens and four US Women’s Opens at Pebble Beach over the next 26 years. Additionally, nearby Spyglass Hill will host the US Senior Open and US Senior Women’s Open in 2030.

This wave of championships includes next year’s US Women’s Open at Pebble, which was previously announced. This is the first time the National Women’s Championship will be held on the Historic Links route. The Women’s Open will return to Pebble in 2035, ’40 and ’48.

USGA officials previously awarded the 2027 US Open to Pebble Beach, the sixth time the event will be played there. Wednesday’s announcement added 2032, ’37 and ’44 to the lineup.

“It’s important for players to win the US Open or the US Women’s Open,” said USGA Championships Manager John Bodenhamer. “The ghosts of the past matter. There are certain places you go and they’re just for a US Open or a US Women’s Open, and Pebble is one of those places.

Wednesday’s news extended the USGA’s efforts to establish “anchor sites” for its biggest events. The organization made a similar long-term commitment to Pinehurst, North Carolina in 2020, then to Oakmont (outside Pittsburgh) and Merion (near Philadelphia) last August.

Oakmont, for example, will host the US Open four more times over the next 30 years, until 2049, and will host the US Women’s Open twice in the years to come.

The Olympic Club of San Francisco, site of last year’s Women’s Open and five-time US Open host, went the other way. Olympic has aligned itself with the PGA of America and will host the PGA Championship in 2028 and the (still lucrative) Ryder Cup in 2033.

The list of Open champions at Pebble includes some of the greatest players in golf history. Jack Nicklaus won in 1972, when he slammed a 1-iron shot on the No. 17 flagstick; Tom Watson won in 1982, when he landed a memorable shot on No. 17 to beat Nicklaus; and Tiger Woods had a historic rout in 2000, winning by 15 strokes.

Tom Kite also won the Pebble Beach Open, battling strong winds to prevail in 1992. Graeme McDowell won the title there in 2010 and Gary Woodland won the last US Open at Pebble, in 2019.
