The "Open" course at The Country Club takes players through a gorgeous natural landscape where rolling fairways are cut through ancient rocks on their way to small, firm, sloping greens. Stunning topographical features can take a player's breath away while challenging blind shots will test a player's nerves.
All facets of a player's game will be tested at Brookline when the 2022 U.S. Open gets underway on June 13:
• Power and accuracy off the tee are needed to set up ideal angles of approach and avoid deep rough and long, gnarly native grass.
• Precise, crisp iron play is required to negotiate the many uneven lies and elevation changes players will encounter throughout the round.
• Players out of position will find themselves in a variety of hazards and will need to use a combination of creativity and finesse to scramble for pars.
This unique course with a varied architectural lineage will reward players who embrace its quirks. Players who prefer playing "driving range golf" will likely be trunk-slamming on Friday night.
