Sebonack Golf Club in Southampton, New York, on Wednesday was selected by the United States Golf Association as the site of the 2013 U.S. Women’s Open.
It will be the first U.S. Women’s Open held on Long Island and the first championship conducted in the state of New York since 1973. Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck hosted the 1957 and 1972 U.S. Women’s Opens.
“We believe the combination of the natural beauty and challenge of Sebonack together with the world’s greatest female golfers, will make for a lot of excitement in an area rich with a history of championship golf,” said Michael Pascucci, Sebonack’s owner. “We are very proud to host this national championship.”
Sebonack Golf Club, designed by Jack Nicklaus and Tom Doak, opened in 2006 and was named Best New Private Course in America by Golf Digest.
