The Olympic Club's Lakeside Course is one of the
most iconic venues in all of championship golf. Its
USGA pedigree runs deep -- when the club hosts
the 2030 U.S. Women's Amateur it will become
just the fifth in history to host the U.S. Open,
U.S. Women’s Open, U.S. Amateur and U.S.
Women’s Amateur. On the men's side, the Lake
Course (as it is commonly known) hosted three
U.S. Amateurs (1958, 1981, 2007) and five U.S.
Opens, including Jack Fleck’s stunning three-
stroke playoff victory over Ben Hogan in 1955
and Billy Casper’s four-stroke playoff win over
Arnold Palmer in 1966. Webb Simpson (2012),
Lee Janzen (1998) and Scott Simpson (1987)
each also produced come-from-behind U.S. Open
The club got a later start hosting USGA women's
competition when it was the stage of the 2021
U.S. Women's Open. Yuka Saso defeated Nasa
Hataoka in a three-hole playoff to become the
first female to hoist a USGA trophy at The
Olympic Club, while 17-year-old Megha Ganne
stole the hearts of San Franciscans in claiming
low amateur honors. The club was awarded the
2030 U.S. Women's Amateur in August of 2022.
