Founded in 1921 and opened 2 years later, the Winged Foot Golf Club was formed by a consortium of members of the New York Athletic Club, which provided inspiration for the name and logo of the golf club. The two courses on offer at Winged Foot are two of the best within America.
The course has opened the U.S. Open five times (1929, 1959, 1974, 1984, 2006) and the PGA Championship once in 1997. The club hosted a sixth U.S. Open in 2020, making it equal third on the most used venue for the championships.
