The United States Golf Association (USGA) has announced that the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California, has been chosen to host the 2031 US Open Championship.

That edition of the iconic major will take place from June 12 to 15, 2031, whilst the course in the greater Los Angeles area will also hold its first US Women’s Open in 2026.

The announcement has been made following the conclusion of this year's US Open, which took place at the Los Angeles Country Club.

John Bodenhamer, USGA's chief championships officer, said: “Riviera Country Club is a truly spectacular course that holds a special place in the game’s history.

“We are thrilled to bring the US Open back to the site of such historic moments for golf and the USGA and look forward to writing a new chapter in 2031.”

Megan Watanabe, chief executive of the Riviera Country Club, added: “We are so grateful that the USGA will return the US Open to our club in 2031.

“Over a six-year period, we will showcase our championship course to the world with the US Women’s Open in 2026, the men’s and women’s Olympics competition in 2028, and the US Open in 2031. 

Los Angeles mayor Karen Bass said: “Los Angeles is our nation's city of champions, and after a successful return of this year's US Open to LA, I am thrilled that the USGA has chosen our city to host the 2031 Open as well.

"From last year's Super Bowl to the upcoming World Cup and Olympics, L.A.'s major events create joy and economic development across our city."

The 2031 US Open will be the fifth USGA championship held at the Club. Riviera previously hosted the 1948 US Open, the 1998 US Senior Open, and the 2017 US Amateur Open.

The 2031 US Open will also be the seventeenth time the championship has been held in California, and the third in Los Angeles.

The city will host more major golf tournaments over the next couple of decades, as the Los Angeles Country Club (LACC) is also set to stage the 2039 US Open and the 2032 US Women’s Open.

Meanwhile, German car manufacturer BMW has signed a partnership with the teams-based biennial Ryder Cup golf tournament.

The deal will allow BMW 7 Series drivers to watch coverage of this year’s tournament from inside their cars live, in global markets excluding the UK, Ireland, North America, and Mexico.

The Cup was established in 1927, and involves the top professional golfers from the US and Europe competing against each other in teams. This year’s tournament will take place from September 25 to October 1 in Rome.

As part of the partnership, there will be a Ryder Cup in-car app, which will enable passengers in the back seats to watch while content can also be accessed on the display in the front when the car is stationary.

Stefan Ponikva, vice president of BMW brand communication and brand experience, said: “The Ryder Cup is associated with unique emotions and great prestige, there is no other golfing event like it.

“The exclusive opportunity to combine sheer driving pleasure with the emotions of the Ryder Cup combines all this with the BMW Group’s aspiration to rethink the digital experience both inside and outside the car and to create innovative worlds of experience.”

Earlier this month BMW signed another golf partnership, striking a sponsorship agreement with the biennial women’s golf Solheim Cup competition, the female equivalent of the Ryder Cup.
