Home of the
2018 U.S. Senior Amateur
Championship

August 25 - 30, 2018

The tradition continues…

Eugene Country Club has a long and rich history of hosting prestigious national championships including the 1964 U.S. Junior Amateur, 1978 NCAA Championship, 1993 U.S. Mid-Amateur, 2002 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur, 2008 U.S. Women’s Amateur, and most recently the 2016 NCAA Championships (men’s and women’s).

Today, Eugene Country Club’s membership and staff are proudly turning our focus to the U.S. Senior Amateur. The excitement and anticipation leading up to this historic championship will build as it grows closer, knowing that we will be hosting 156 of the world’s best senior amateur golfers. We excel at hosting prominent golf championships and look forward to once again putting our course, our membership, and our hospitality on display.

We know that our course will, as always, prove to be a challenging test for these elite golfers. We hope you will consider joining us to see the next national champion crowned at Eugene Country Club. Judging by last year’s championship excitement, this year will see many twists and turns that you won’t want to miss. Will last year’s winner, 55-year-old Sean Knapp, come back for a repeat? After competing in 40 previous USGA Championships and losing twice in the semifinal round, on his first appearance at a U.S. Senior Am, he sunk a 20-foot par putt on the 17th green to win over two-time champion Paul Simson.
