The USGA has announced that Martis Camp Club in Truckee, Calif., will host the U.S. Senior Amateur in 2023. Martis Camp previously hosted the 2013 U.S. Junior Amateur, when Scottie Scheffler defeated Davis Riley, 3 and 2, in the 36-hole final.
“The USGA is pleased to partner with Martis Camp Club in bringing the U.S. Senior Amateur for the first time to the Sierra Nevada, the Lake Tahoe region and the Truckee community,” said John Bodenhamer, USGA senior managing director, Championships. “The U.S. Senior Amateur title is highly sought after by the more than 2,500 who file entries and the 156 players who vie for the Frederick L. Dold Trophy each year. The competitors will relish the scenic and challenging environment.”
Martis Camp was designed by Tom Fazio and opened for play in June 2008. Set within the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Martis Valley, the course features mature pines, natural elevation changes and mountain views on the outward nine, with finishing holes framed by views of Mount Rose and the Carson and Sierra Nevada ranges.
The 2023 U.S. Senior Amateur will be the 88th USGA championship in California. The Golden State has previously hosted the U.S. Senior Amateur five times, including in 2014 at Big Canyon Country Club in Newport Beach. In 2023, California will also host the 78th U.S. Women’s Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links and the 123rd U.S. Open at The Los Angeles Country Club.
The 2020 U.S. Senior Amateur will be contested Aug. 29-Sept. 3 at the Country Club of Detroit, in Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich. The 2021 championship will be played Aug. 28-Sept. 2 at The Honors Course, in Ooltewah, Tenn. The 2022 championship will be held on Aug. 27-Sept. 1 at The Kittansett Club, in Marion, Mass.
