The USGA announced that Chambers Bay has been selected to host the 2028 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship. The Championship will be taking place from May 20-24.

This will be the sixth USGA Championship that will be held at Chambers Bay. The course has previously hosted the 2010 U.S. Amateur that Peter Uihlein won over David Chung, 4 & 2. That Championship had future golf stars, Justin Thomas, Patrick Cantlay, Max Homa, and Patrick Reed, among others. In 2015, the U.S. Open was held at Chambers Bay, won by Jordan Spieth by one shot over Louis Oosthuizen and Dustin Johnson. Johnson three-putted the last hole to miss out on a playoff while Spieth won his second consecutive major.

In 2021, the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship was held at Chambers Bay, where Kiko Francisco Coelho and Leopoldo Herrera III from Florida won over Brendan MacDougall and Sam Meek in 19 holes in the championship match. Then in 2022, Saki Baba from Japan won over Monet Chun 11 & 9 in the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship.

Chambers Bay will also host the 2027 U.S. Junior Amateur and the 2033 U.S. Amateur. When the 2028 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship takes place at Chambers Bay, it’ll be the 31st USGA Championship hosted in Washington. Washington will host the 2024 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur Broadmoor Golf Club in Seattle this September. The most recent USGA Championship held in Washington was the 2023 U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball at The Home Course in DuPont. The Home Course will be a stroke play co-host in 2028.

The U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship is open to sides of amateurs, each player’s handicap index is 5.4 or less and there are no age restrictions.
