The Olympic Club has hosted the U. S. Open 5 times, and has been the scene of some of the most dramatic upsets in golf history. Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, and Tom Watson all saw 54 hole leads disappear here. The 2012 winner, Webb Simpson wasn’t even in the final group when play started. The course belongs in San Francisco as there are very few level lies. Everything goes up or downhill, and usually sideways as well. It starts with a 520 yd par 4, so it lets you know right away that this isn’t going to be easy. You won’t see a par 5 until #16, and then its the longest hole in Open history at 670 yards. The 17th is the only other par 5 and it just about demands that you for it. One new feature has been added to ASG Golf for this course: Alternate tees, on both 15 & 16 that will dramatically change how the hole will be played.
