U.S. Amateur Four-Ball hopefuls can breathe a sigh of relief.

2014 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball qualifying dates and locations have been announced by the USGA.

Slated for May 2-6, 2015, the inaugural U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championships have gained an impressive amount of interest and qualifying for the event -- to be held at The Olympic Club in San Francisco -- is indeed a hot topic.

Several of the qualifying sites have a history with the USGA. According to a release from the association:

Several U.S. Amateur Four-Ball qualifying sites have hosted USGA championships. Philadelphia Country Club, in Gladwyne, Pa., has been home to four, including the 1939 U.S. Open, which was won by Byron Nelson. Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis, Mo., was the site of the 1965 U.S. Open (won by Gary Player) and 2004 U.S. Senior Open (won by Peter Jacobsen).

The 2015 U.S. Senior Open will be conducted at Del Paso Country Club in Sacramento, Calif., another qualifying site for the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball.

Four courses that have hosted a pair of USGA championships are serving as sites for U.S. Amateur Four-Ball sectional qualifying. Gold Mountain Golf Club in Bremerton, Wash., hosted the 2006 U.S. Amateur Public Links and 2011 U.S. Junior Amateur. Pasatiempo Golf Club in Santa Cruz, Calif., was the host site for the 1986 U.S. Women’s Amateur and 2004 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur. Desert Forest Golf Club in Carefree, Ariz., hosted the 1990 U.S. Senior Amateur and 2007 U.S. Women’s Mid- Amateur. Tulsa (Okla.) Country Club hosted the 1960 U.S. Women’s Amateur and 2008 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur.

To be eligible for the U.S. Amateur Four- Ball, a player must have a Handicap Index® not exceeding 5.4, with no age restrictions. Team partners will not be required to be from the same club, state or country, and substitution of partners will be permitted until the close of entries.
