Inverness Club hosted the 2021 Solheim Cup in September, attracting a record 130,000 people.

Four months removed from hosting a highly successful Solheim Cup, Inverness Club will be announced as the venue for the 2027 U.S. Women's Open on Friday.

According to The Blade, the Toledo, Ohio, course will host its first U.S. Women's Open and fifth different USGA event. In November, Inverness was chosen as the site for the 2029 U.S. Amateur Championship.

“The partnership between Inverness and the USGA is very strong, and the U.S. Women’s Open adds to the collection of USGA championships that we’ve hosted,” John Swigart, Inverness chairman of future championships, told The Blade.

Inverness was the first course to host four USGA events — four U.S. Opens, two U.S. Senior Opens, one U.S. Amateur and one U.S. Junior Amateur. It will now become the first to host five national championships, and it has also hosted two PGA Championships and the Solheim Cup. The 2027 U.S. Women’s Open is scheduled for June 24-27. 

Despite the lingering effects of the pandemic, the Solheim Cup proved to be a success for Inverness and the community. A record 130,000 people attended the week-long event in early September, helping to create a $40 million economic impact.
