The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts has been one of golf’s greatest stages for dramatic history, and the 2022 U.S. Open has a script that’s primed for another blockbuster.
For the golfers, it’s the shot at PGA Tour infamy, a chance to raise the U.S. Open Championship trophy and become part of the elite names who have won the storied major before them.
For the fans in attendance, it’ll be the opportunity to watch the world-class field of golfers—every tee shot, fairway approach and putt—while walking a course that is genuinely part of American golf’s origins.
And for both, it’ll be a historical experience that is unique to 2022.
Founded in 1882, the iconic and exclusive grounds just outside of Boston is the oldest country club in the U.S., and one of five founding members of the United States Golf Association. And for the fourth time, the course will be an 18-hole setting for the U.S. Open.
But it’s not just any typical 18 holes at The Country Club from June 13 to June 19.
The 7,300-yard-plus layout—configured from the 27 holes that make up the two courses at the club—will provide a modern-day chapter to the longstanding golf lore, a sequence of holes that differs from the order played in past majors and the 1999 Ryder Cup. Plus, an inclusion of a hole that’s remained unused in a major since the 1913 U.S. Open.
Something old. Something new.
When considering such a one-of-a-kind, overall golf experience, it’s easy to see why the tournament has become a must-attend. And if you’re looking to make a trip to the 2022 U.S. Open, then TicketSmarter can help begin the memorable journey.

1913 U.S. Open Championship
The 1913 U.S. Open played out like a Hollywood film. The young amateur Francis Ouimet went up against the great Harry Vardon and Ted Ray, two of the top pros and both major winners, and came out of the dramatic 18-hole playoff as a champ. The 20-year-old Ouimet was the first amateur to win the U.S. Open, a feat that was so impressive it inspired the book “The Greatest Game Ever Played: Harry Vardon, Francis Ouimet, and the Birth of Modern Golf.” That eventually got the treatment the tale deserved, an adaptation for the big screen in 2005.
1963 U.S. Open Championship
Fifty years later, The Country Club provided more fireworks when the ’63 U.S. Open went to an 18-hole playoff to decide the winner. Arnold Palmer looked to avoid back-to-back runner-up finishes while Guy Boros and Jacky Cupit added to the epic battle. Boros started hot and stayed consistent, while Palmer found trouble on the 11th (pictured) and wound up with a triple-bogey. Cupit didn’t fare much better on the par-4 11th, carding a bogey. The mistakes were too much to overcome in the final stretch, and Boros rolled to a three-shot victory, becoming one of the oldest ever to win the U.S. Open (currently fourth-oldest).

Seventy-five years after the first, 25 years after the second, it was more U.S. Open playoff drama at The Country Club. This time, Curtis Strange went up against Nick Faldo in a close matchup, one that was a toss-up at the turn. But like Palmer and Cupit before him, Faldo ran into trouble on the 11th, taking a bogey that proved to be the start of a downward spiral. Strange kept his game steady enough to hold the lead, winning the playoff by four strokes.
