Brookline hosts the US Open

The Country Club in Brookline, one of the oldest country clubs in the nation, has hosted the US Open golf tournament three times. In 1913, 20-year-old amateur and Brookline native Francis Ouimet shocked the golf world by winning the US Open in an 18-hole playoff. An American golf hero was born and more enthusiasm for the sport ensued. The Country Club subsequently hosted the Open on the 50th and 75th anniversaries of the Ouimet victory. The match was dubbed as “The greatest game ever played” in a book and movie. The 100th anniversary next year will not be played at The Country Club — they will host the 2013 US Amateur Championship. - Leanne Burden Seidel
