A pair of changes have been made to future sites for the U.S. Senior Amateur Championship. The Country Club of Detroit, in Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich., will be the site of the 66th championship in 2021, scheduled for Aug. 28-Sept. 2, while the 69th U.S. Senior Amateur in 2024 will be played at The Honors Course, in Ooltewah, Tenn., from Aug. 24-29.
The Country Club of Detroit, the site of two previous U.S. Amateur Championships, was originally slated to host the 2020 U.S. Senior Amateur, which was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Honors Course, which hosted the 1991 U.S. Amateur and 1994 Curtis Cup Match among its five previous USGA championships, was scheduled to host the 2021 Senior Amateur but is moving to allow for a more complete recovery from damage sustained in a tornado in April.
“The Country Club of Detroit is excited to continue our long tradition of supporting amateur golf by proudly hosting the 2021 U.S. Senior Amateur Championship,” said George J. Baer III, club president. “As the location where Arnold Palmer launched his historic career by winning the 1954 U.S. Amateur, the Country Club of Detroit holds a unique place in golf history, and we look forward to continuing this great tradition.”
