Three representatives from the USGA will be stationed at Lakeside in the buildup to the 2021 U.S. Women’s Open.
As is customary in preparing to host such a prestigious event, this team will help provide on-site logistical support for USGA, while also helping to enhance the overall member experience at our Club. A big part of achieving that goal will be offering members exclusive volunteer opportunities.

USGA News - 2021 USWO
Since making the decision to move the 2020 U.S. Women’s Open to December, the USGA and Champions Golf Club leadership have been working closely on planning a variety of scenarios to safely play the championship. While we are extremely grateful that we will be able to execute on an outstanding championship, out of an abundance of caution for health and safety, we have decided that only players, essential workers and volunteers will be permitted on-site, which means we are unable to accommodate fans. We will, however, be working closely with The Olympic Club to offer a variety of virtual and digital ways for you to be involved in this year’s championship without needing to be in Houston.
We are excited to host another major championship at The Olympic Club. We'd love for you to join us as a Standard Bearer at the 2021 U.S. Women's Open Championship, which will be conducted on June 2-6.
The USGA is hosting the 120th U.S. Women's Amateur this week, and the champion will earn a spot into next year's U.S. Women's Open (USWO)!
