The USGA has announced Wisconsin-based golf course SentryWorld will host the U.S Senior Open in 2023.

SentryWorld Golf Course was selected by the USGA to host the 43rd U.S. Senior Open in 2023 to showcase the area’s extraordinary beauty. The golf course is no stranger to USGA events; it hosted the 1986 U.S Women’s amateur, and the 2019 U.S. Girls Junior Championship. The U.S. Senior Open is the most prestigious event to come to SentryWorld yet. 2023 will be the 17th time Wisconsin has hosted a USGA Championship.

The U.S. Senior Open was first staged in 1980, and is open to any golfer over the age of 50, any amateur or professional with a Handicap index not exceeding 3.4. Steve Stricker won the 2019 event at Notre Dame’s Warren Course with a six-stroke victory. This year’s event will be played at Omaha Country Club in Nebraska.
