    A Guide to the 2024 U.S. Women’s Open Presented by Ally

    THE COURSE

     

    In 1919, William Flynn was hired to remodel the existing nine-hole course at Lancaster Country Club and add another nine holes. No one could have predicted then that Flynn would go on to become one of America’s greatest golf course architects or that his work at Lancaster would be considered among his best.

     

    Following Lancaster, Flynn designed multiple major championship courses, including Shinnecock Hills, the Country Club (Brookline), and Cherry Hills while having a hand in the design evolution of American classics like Pine Valley and Merion. His relationship with Lancaster was unique. For 26 years until his death in 1945, Flynn returned to Lancaster to work on the course, eventually taking it across the Conestoga River in 1941.

     

    LCC has been committed to preserving Flynn’s masterpiece, and no changes have been made to the course without the expert advice of Lancaster County native and golf course architect Jim Nagle, who is a studied Flynn expert. Course architecture website Golf Club Atlas called Flynn’s work “one of the best marriages of property with a master golf course architect.”

     

    At 6,629 yards and par 70 for the 2024 U.S. Women’s Open, the course is a traditional parkland course that meanders over gently rolling terrain, is dissected by the Conestoga River, and even features two holes without a single bunker, a rarity in today’s golf game.
