Bandon Dunes set to play host to the 2020 U.S. Amateur Golf Championship

Updated: July 6, 2020

Bandon Dunes Resort on the Oregon Coast has been a long-time supporter of the United States Golf Association and this summer that support takes another step when the resort hosts the United States Men’s Amateur Championship.

The championship will be held Aug. 10-16 at both Bandon Dunes and Bandon Trails. Bandon Trails will be a co-host for the stroke-play part of the tournament while the match play will take place at Bandon Dunes.

A field of 312 players is expected to take part in the tournament for two days of stroke play qualifying with the top 64 players advancing to match play.

Hosting USGA championships is nothing new for Bandon Dunes Resort as the resort has played host to the 2006 Curtis Cup, 2007 U.S. Mid-Amateur, 2011 U.S. Women’s Public Links, 2015 U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball and the 2019 U.S. Amateur Men’s Four-Ball.

Bandon Dunes opened for play in 1999 and was designed by David McLay Kidd. It will play to 7,218 yards for the championship while Bandon Trails, designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, will play to 6,883 for the tournament.

The 2021 U.S. Amateur is scheduled for Oakmont in Pennsylvania.
