Updated: July 7, 2018

With any first time event, there is always excitement. Add in the fact that some of the greatest women golfer that have every played the game are in the event makes it even better. Then consider that the first time event is a U.S. Open, at the Chicago Golf Club which is one of the most historic Golf Courses in the country just puts it over the top.

This is the inaugural U.S. Open on “The Legends Tour” and the excitement is building.  The biggest names in the sport are taking on The Chicago Golf Club, one of the founding course members of the USGA.

The course was designed by Charles Macdonald, and if that name sounds familiar, it should.  He is widely considered the “Father of American Golf Architecture” and another of his courses is being used this week on the PGA Tour at The Greenbrier, Old White TPC.

The Chicago Golf Club, designed by Macdonald was later tweaked by Seth Raynor, another legend in Golf Architecture.

The course is set up this week at just over 6000 yards with the score card that looks like this.
