SAN MARTIN, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CordeValle, nestled in the rolling foothills just south of San Jose, is set to host the 71st U.S. Women’s Open Championship. The property will host tens of thousands of golf devotees during the championship, which will be conducted July 4-10, 2016. Limited early ticket offerings are now available to the public for purchase at www.2016uswomensopen.com, while supplies last.
Tickets range in price from $75 for a 2-Entry Flex Package, which includes two individual admissions to use on two separate days or on a single day, to a $125 7-Entry Flex Package, which includes seven individual admissions in any combination on any day or all on a single day.

This will be the third time the U.S. Women’s Open has been conducted in California and the first in more than three decades. The championship was held at San Diego Country Club in Chula Vista in 1964, and Sacramento’s Del Paso Country Club hosted the event in 1982. CordeValle has hosted top tier championships in years prior, including the PGA Tour’s Frys.com Open from 2010-2013, as well as the 2011 and 2015 PGA Cups, and the U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur Championship in 2013.
“It is an honor to host such a prestigious golf championship,” said CordeValle President Luca Rutigliano. “Our membership and the surrounding communities of Morgan Hill and Gilroy are all thrilled to be involved. The eyes of the sporting world will be upon us, making the 2016 U.S. Women’s Open nothing short of a coming-out party for this beautiful region.”

“The USGA is looking forward to our return to CordeValle for the 2016 U.S. Women’s Open,” said Diana Murphy, USGA vice president and chairman of the Championship Committee. “This course, which beautifully incorporates the iconic Northern California landscape, will surely provide a true test of the competitors skill and mental fortitude, as well as a truly extraordinary experience for spectators.”
