Shinnecock Hills Hole By Hole Guide

The US Open pitches up at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Long Island, New York this year.

Having last hosted the US Open in 2004, the course has been lengthened in some areas. For example the par-3 second has been lengthened by 26 yards to take it to 252.

The winner in 2004 was South African Retief Goosen on a score of four under.

It also hosted in 1896, 1986 and 1995.

The course was founded in 1891, and is one of the five founding member clubs of the USGA.

Originally it was a 12 hole course, but it was then expanded to 18 holes in 1895.

Laid out utilising the topography of Shinnecock Hills, the course has a links feel to it, with a distinct British Isles vibe too.

It has long been recognised as one of the best course in America, and will provide a tough challenge to those competing in 2018.
