Coming off a successful 2019 U.S. Junior Girls Championship, the United States Golf Association is returning to SentryWorld in Stevens Point for 2023. So this marks the third USGA future championship scheduled for Wisconsin in the next four years.
Because Erin Hills near Milwaukee will host the 2022 Mid-Amateur Championship, before hosting the 2025 U.S. Women’s Open.
“The USGA is pleased to return to Sentry World and the state of Wisconsin. To conduct the most prestigious championship in senior golf,” said John Bodenhamer, USGA senior managing director, Championships. “We know that the region and community will enthusiastically support the U.S. Senior Open. And that Sentry World will provide a complete test for an international field competing for the Francis D. Ouimet Memorial Trophy.”
In 2013 the parkland style golf course had a renovation by Robert Trent Jones Jr., but was led by architects Bruce Charlton and Jay Blasi.
But USGA Championship golf is no stranger to SentryWorld. Because in 1986 Cindy Schreyer defeated 13 year old Vicki Goetze, 3 & 2 in the U.S. Women’s Public Links final.
Pete McPartland, Sentry chairman of the board, president and CEO, said. “Golf is part of our DNA. Because the camaraderie of play helps create the perfect environment for developing and building great relationships with our customers, business partners and the community. It’s why we built SentryWorld.”
Sentry Insurance is the sponsor of the PGA Tour’s Tournament of Champions, played in January at Kapalua’s Plantation Course in Maui, Hawaii. Sentry Insurance just renewed to sponsor the championship through the year 2030.
This will be the second U.S. Senior Open played in Wisconsin. The first was held at Whistling Straits in 2007. The home of this years Ryder Cup in September and part of the American Club operated by Kohler Company.
While a new Inn should open by SentryWorld this spring, the golf course will not. The course remained closed for all of 2020 because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
But in 2021 the course will now open in mid-August. That’s when 2023 U.S. Senior Open improvements should be completed. So for more details see USGA.org or visit SentryWorld.com
