Beacon Hall Golf Club first Canadian course to host U.S. Open local qualifier
Local qualifiers for the U.S. Open will include a Canadian golf course for the first time for the first time in the tournament’s 117-year history. The United States Golf Association announced Tuesday that Beacon Hall Golf Club, in Aurora, Ont., will host the local Canadian qualifier on May 8. It’s one of 114 local qualifiers, with all others taking place in the U.S. Players who advance out of local qualifying will compete in sectional qualifying, which will be conducted over 36 holes at 10 U.S. sites on June 5. Japan and England will host international sectional qualifying in late May.
