NOTRE DAME — The University of Notre Dame and the United States Golf Association (USGA) released today exclusive introductory ticket packages and volunteer opportunities for the 40th U.S. Senior Open Championship to the general public.
The championship will be played on The Warren Golf Course at Notre Dame, June 24-30, 2019, and will be the first time the U.S. Senior Open is played on both a college campus and a public golf course.
“It is an honor to have been selected by the USGA as the host site for the 2019 U.S. Senior Open”, said John Foster, general chairman of the 2019 U.S. Senior Open. “We see this as a tremendous opportunity to showcase our great university, the Warren Golf Course and the South Bend community to a worldwide audience.”
The U.S. Senior Open returns to the state of Indiana for the second time in championship history. In 2009, Crooked Stick Golf Club, in Carmel, served as the host site. Fred Funk won his first USGA championship with a record 20-under-par 268 to capture the title by six strokes.
