Question: Which Golf Course Has Been the Site of the Most U.S. Opens?
The U.S. Open golf tournament is played on different golf courses each year, but some courses host the tournament with regularity. Which course has been the site of the tournament most often?
Answer: Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, Pa., has hosted the U.S. Open eight times. Oakmont most recently was the tournament site in 2007. Previously, it hosted the U.S. Open in 1927, 1935, 1953, 1962, 1973, 1983 and 1994.

And Oakmont CC is on the USGA schedule to host again at the 2016 U.S. Open.

Runner-up to Oakmont is the South Course at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Township, Mich. Oakland Hills South has been the site of the U.S. Open six times (1924, 1937, 1951, 1961, 1985, 1996).

Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, N.J., has hosted seven U.S. Opens, but not all on the same course. Five of Baltusrol's Opens were played on its Lower Course; two other times the U.S. Open was played on the club's Old Course, which no longer exists.
