Pinehurst handed US Open in 2014- 16 Jun 2009 00:00:00
Pinehurst has been named as the host venue for both the men’s and women’s US Open tournaments in 2014 - the first time both golf majors have been staged on the same course.
The events will run back-to-back in June on Pinehurst's number two course with the men's edition held on 12th-15th June and the women's event staged a week later at the North Carolina club.
Pinehurst's number two course, designed by Donald Ross and opened in 1907, was the scene of Michael Campbell's 2005 Open victory over Tiger Woods.
This year's championship takes place at Bethpage Black in New York starting this week.
