Edina’s Interlachen Country Club to host 2030 US Women’s Open
The U.S. Women’s Open is coming to Minnesota, although fans will have to endure a bit of a wait.
The U.S. Golf Association (USGA) announced future sites for the U.S. Women’s Open on Friday, naming Interlachen Country Club in Edina as the host for the event in 2030. The event will also come to Wisconsin in 2025 at Erin Hills, which was previously announced.
The 2030 event will mark the second U.S. Women’s Open at Interlachen and the sixth USGA championship overall. It will also be played on the 100th anniversary of Bob Jones’ U.S. Open win at Interlachen.
Most recently, Interlachen hosted the 2008 U.S. Women’s Open. Other championship events at the club included the 1935 U.S. Women’s Amateur, 1986 U.S. Senior Amateur and the 1993 Walker Cup.
The U.S. Women’s Open is one of 15 national championships conducted annually by the USGA.
Also in Friday’s announcement, the association announced it has entered a long-term partnership with ProMedica, which will help elevate the championship purse in 2022 from $5.5 million to $10 million. The USGA said the Women’s Open purse will raise to $11 million and then $12 million in the next five years.
