2024 U.S. Women's Open Dates, Golf Course

The 2024 U.S. Women's Open will be the 79th time this major championship is played. The tournament, run by the United States Golf Association (USGA), is the pre-eminent tournament in women's professional golf. It was first played in 1946.

2024 U.S. Women's Open dates: May 30-June 2, 2024
Golf course: Lancaster Country Club in Lancaster, Pennsylvania (see also: list of all U.S. Women's Open golf courses)
Defending champion: Allisen Corpuz won the 2023 U.S. Open by three strokes over runners-up Charley Hull and Jiyai Shin. It was her first-ever win on the LPGA Tour.
Tickets: Visit the Tickets section of USGA.org for info. Tickets typically become available shortly after the completion of the previous USWO.

The field will include 156 golfers. Qualifying tournaments, 36 holes each, take place at around 25-30 sites in April and early May. About two-thirds of the field will get in via various exemption categories (such as winners of previous majors, world rankings, LPGA money and so on).

The cut is to 60 players following the second round (after 36 holes). A playoff, if required, is two holes, aggregate score (if still tied, the participants continue with sudden-death format).

2024 U.S. Women's Open Golf Course: Lancaster Country Club

Lancaster (Pa.) Country Club is the site of the 2024 U.S. Women's Open. It's a private club, opened in 1900, boasting William Flynn-designed golf holes. A restoration in 2007 brought the club back to its Flynn design. The club has three nines. The USWO will take place on what is called The Old Course, a combination of the Meadowcreek and Dogwood nines.

Lancaster CC does not have a long history of major championship golf. But it has been the site of this tournament before: The 2015 U.S. Women's Open was played at Lancaster CC. The winner was In Gee Chun with an 8-under score of 272. The club has also been the site of the Pennsylvania Open and the USGA has used it for local qualifying.
