Seattle Golf Club to host 2027 USGA Senior Amateur

Updated: June 30, 2024

Seattle Golf Club has been chosen by the USGA as the host site for the 72nd U.S. Senior Amateur Championship. The dates of the championship are Aug. 28-Sept. 2, 2027. This will be the club’s fourth USGA championship but first since 1981.

Founded in 1900, Seattle Golf Club overlooks the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains and is surrounded by 100-year-old Douglas fir trees. The original course was designed by Robert Johnstone, the club’s head golf professional from 1905-1937, with assistance from John Ball, a Minneapolis-based Scottish golf architect, and later redesigned by World Golf Hall of Famer and three-time USGA champion Arnold Palmer in 1996. Thad Layton, of the Arnold Palmer Design Company, completed an update of the green complexes while adding several fairway bunkers and tee locations in 2022.

Seattle Golf Club is one of four clubs to host the U.S. Senior Amateur, U.S. Amateur and Walker Cup, joining Shinnecock Golf Club, in Southampton, N.Y., Chicago Golf Club, in Wheaton, Ill., and The Minikahda Club, in Minneapolis, Minn.

Through 2023, there have been 28 USGA championships contested in the state of Washington. In 2024, the U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur will be held at Broadmoor Golf Club, in Seattle, Sept. 21-26. The state will host three USGA championships in 2027. In addition to the U.S. Senior Amateur, the U.S. Junior Amateur will be played at Chambers Bay, in University Place, and the U.S. Senior Women’s Open will be held at Tacoma Country and Golf Club.
