USGA Set To Announce CordeValle Golf Club As Host Of '16 U.S. Women's Open
Published June 26, 2013
FRAMING THE SHOT: On Long Island, Neil Best notes '13 U.S. Women's Open host Sebonack Golf Club is just 7 years old and "does not have the history of most courses that have hosted national championships." But the Southampton, N.Y., course can "compete with any when it comes to scenery." NBC Sports Golf Producer Tommy Roy said, "This is one of the most spectacular courses ever. It would be very similar to Pebble Beach, except in this case the greens aren't right next to the water." Roy said that giving viewers a "sense of place is a priority." That includes shots "from a blimp, which are not usually deployed for women's Opens, to show off the golfing neighborhood, including Shinnecock Hills and National Golf Links of America" (NEWSDAY, 6/26).
