118th U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills - course overview

By Mike Tyler

June 14, 2018 - June 17, 2018 - The 118th U.S. Open will be played at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, New York. The links-style course is hosting the major for the fifth time, and will play as a par 70 at 7,445 yards – a stretch of almost 450 yards since the 2004 Open – thanks to 10 new back tees.

The most significant adjustments come at the downhill par-4 14th (now 519 yards) and the winding par-5 16th (now 616 yards). Seven acres of fairway have also been converted to rough as part of a project begun in 2012 to restore the course to its 1931 design.
