USGA to hold 129th U.S. Amateur at Inverness Club in Ohio in 2029

On Wednesday the United States Golf Association announced that the 129th U.S. Amateur will be played at Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio, Aug. 13-19, 2029.

Inverness has hosted nine previous USGA championships, including the 1973 U.S. Amateur won by Craig Stadler. The club also hosted four U.S. Opens in 1920, 1931, 1957 and 1979. A second course for stroke play for the Am will be named at a later date.

“The growth of the U.S. Amateur over the last 100 years has been phenomenal, and earlier this year we saw near record-high entries for the championship,” said the USGA’s John Bodenhamer, senior managing director, Championships. “Part of that growth is a commitment by the USGA to take the championship to the best courses in the country, and Inverness is certainly among that group. We look forward to continuing our partnership with them with another U.S. Amateur.”

Most recently Inverness hosted the 2021 Solheim Cup, where Team Europe defeated the USA, 15-13.
