  • Celebrating 10 years of the Virtual U.S. Open, and the Inaugural Virtual U.S. Amateur

    27 Feb 2018

    This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Virtual U.S. Open on WGT in collaboration with the United States Golf Association (USGA). Over the past ten years, more than 4.2MM people have competed, playing over 28MM rounds on U.S. Open Championship courses!

    In celebration of this milestone, we've created a new course made up of the best holes from past U.S. Open Championships.

    Starting in March, you'll be able to compete in the 2018 Virtual U.S. Open on some of the country's most prestigious courses including Bethpage Black, Pebble Beach Golf Links, Congressional Country Club, The Olympic Club, Merion, Pinehurst No. 2, Chambers Bay, Oakmont Country Club and Erin Hills.

    This May-June, play in the Virtual U.S. Open Qualifier tournament for the chance to win a trip to Pebble Beach to experience the 2019 U.S. Open in person! 

    As part of our effort to grow and celebrate the game of golf we all love, the USGA and WGT are excited to announce the first-ever Virtual U.S. Amateur this year. This new virtual Championship will be played on the same course that the U.S. Amateur will be played this August, Pebble Beach, followed by Pinehurst Resort and Country Club in 2019.

    In 2020, the U.S. Amateur will be hosted at Bandon Dunes and as a result we'll be busy working on the full 18 holes of the iconic Bandon Dunes Golf Course. 

    We'll be sharing more details on the 2018 Virtual U.S. Open tournament and the new Virtual U.S. Amateur as we have them, so stay tuned!
