Charity Benefit The USGA Foundation provides support for programs that target under-served audiences, junior golfers, women and beginners of all ages to develop a passionate and engaged group that will have a long-term commitment to the game. Additionally, the USGA is committed to making the game more accessible for disabled golfers.

The 543-yard par-5 18th is one of the most iconic holes in golf with the ocean lining the left side. The stretch of Nos. 6 through 9 also play along the ocean, on the right side, with the eighth and ninth particularly demanding par fours. The toughest hole on the course in the 2010 U.S. Open was the 17th, a 208-yard par 3 exposed to the wind as it plays toward the water.
