The course

The Country Club measures 7,264 yards in length, just over 250 longer than the last U.S. Open played at the course in 1988. The major difference between that event and this one is that the layout will play to a par of 70 instead of 71. Curtis Strange won in '88 with a 6-under, a number that would be just 2-under when played to a par of 70.

There are 27 holes on the property with a composite 18 forming the track for the U.S. Open. There are eight par 4s that measure at least 450 yards, very difficult tests when you factor in how unforgiving the thick rough is when missing the fairway.

Fairways will be at a premium with the usual U.S. Open rough in play, and The Country Club's tricky putting surfaces should provide a very stern test for the season's third major.
