Winged Foot Golf Club was founded in 1921, by a consortium consisting mainly of members of The New York Athletic Club. The club took its name and logo from the NYAC's logo, but the two have never had any direct affiliation. Winged Foot has hosted many top level tournaments and national championships on both its East and West courses. The renowned West Course has staged US Opens, US Amateur Championships, a US PGA Championship and a Walker Cup. The shorter East Course has hosted US Women's Opens and the inaugural US Senior Open. The 120th U.S. Open Championship will be played at Winged Foot Golf Club on June 15-21, 2020.
At Winged Foot, West course you will find one of the United States' most admired tree-lined and open parkland layouts, with an outstanding array of excellently crafted and challenging holes. Golf courses don't get any better than this. However, this is a private club with its courses generally playable only by members and their guests.
