USGA Announces 45th U.S. Senior Open Will Return to The Broadmoor

The United States Golf Association (USGA) has announced The Broadmoor Golf Club in Colorado Springs, Colo., will host the 45th U.S. Senior Open in 2025.

The Broadmoor, which has already been the host course of two U.S. Senior Open Championships and eight USGA championships, recently celebrated its centenary.

The welcome announcement was made by the USGA at the closing ceremony of the 39th U.S. Senior Open, which saw American David Toms take the trophy.

A ‘gracious’ host

“Beginning with the U.S. Amateur in 1959, The Broadmoor has been a gracious and wonderful host and a valued partner to the USGA, helping us to showcase the world’s greatest players on the game’s greatest stages,” said Mike Davis, CEO of the USGA.

“This has been a tremendous week of golf and a great celebration of the game, and we are excited to bring the championship back to Colorado Springs in 2025.”

Donald Ross designed The Broadmoor’s East Course, which opened for play in 1918. The course is now a combination of holes from Ross’ original layout and holes designed by renowned Robert Trent Jones Sr. It sits at an elevation of over 6,300 feet on the southern edge of the Rocky Mountains.

‘Thrilled’ about the USGA’s announcement

Jack Damioli, president and CEO of The Broadmoor Golf Club, said the venue is “thrilled” to host its ninth USGA championship.

“This opportunity would not be possible without the support and partnership of the city of Colorado Springs, El Paso County and the state of Colorado.

“Colorado has a storied history of hosting golf’s biggest events, and we are privileged to once again stage a national championship.”

A historic major championship

The U.S. Senior Open Championship was first played in 1980 and is open to any professional and amateur golfer who is 50 years of age with a handicap not exceeding 3.4.

Future U.S. Senior Open Championships will be held at: The Warren Golf Course at Notre Dame, Notre Dame, Ind., In 2019; Newport Country Club in 2020; Omaha Country Club in 2021; and at Saucon Valley Country Club, Bethlehem, Pa., in 2022.
