Merion Golf Club, Ardmore, Pa.

Established in 1896, Merion Golf Club enjoys the distinction of hosting more USGA championships (the 2013 U.S. Open will be its 18th) than any other club in America. It has been the site of several iconic moments in the game's history, including Bobby Jones completing the "Grand Slam" in 1930 with his U.S. Amateur triumph, and Ben Hogan winning the 1950 U.S. Open 16 months after surviving a near-fatal automobile accident. The current East Course, which opened in 1912, was designed by Merion member Hugh Wilson on just 126 acres. Minor renovations and tweaks have been made to the classic design over the last 101 years. And despite being considered "short" for today's modern game, Merion's strong architectural features make it an ideal setting for its fifth U.S. Open.
