NCR Country Club in Kettering, Ohio, has been chosen by the USGA as the host site of the fourth U.S. Senior Women’s Open Championship starting August 25, 2022.
The club has hosted four USGA championships: the 1986 U.S. Women’s Open, the 1998 U.S. Mid-Amateur, the 2005 U.S. Senior Open and the 2013 USGA Women’s State Team Championship. It also hosted the 1969 PGA Championship.
“As we kick off the 3rd U.S. Senior Women’s Open on Thursday, we couldn’t be more excited to announce that we are taking this championship to another venerable U.S. Women’s Open venue next year in NCR Country Club,” said John Bodenhamer, USGA senior managing director, Championships. “The Senior Women’s Open continues to generate more and more buzz and excitement and has become a must-play event as the game’s greats turn 50. We’re grateful to have the opportunity to return to NCR and crown another worthy USGA champion.”
The 2022 U.S. Senior Women’s Open will be the 41st USGA championship held in Ohio. NCR’s South Course was designed by Dick Wilson and opened in 1954.
“Our history with the USGA runs deep, and we cannot wait to welcome them back for another championship,” said Jeff Grant, chief operating officer of NCR Country Club. “The opportunity for us to share our world-class facility and golf course with some of the best players to have ever played the game is such a treat for all of us. We are honored and privileged to once again stage such a prestigious championship.”
