Will the Women Ever Play at Pebble Beach?

Recommended Posts

I thought the woman would never play at Oakmont, but I was there when Paula Creamer won the U.S. Women's open in 2010.
I Will be at St. Andrews, Scotland when the women play the British Open this July.
I will be hoping that someday soon, the woman will be invited to play at Pebble Beach.
What does everyone think?

I think they will someday.  Times are changing and as younger people with more modern ideas take over, things will continue to change.  Granted, it might be another 20 or 30 years but I think eventually you will even see a Womens' Masters at Augusta.

Am I missing something? This isn't a rights thing, it's just that they don't have a tournament scheduled there, correct?

Does the LPGA have an Open?  Or do you mean the USGA Women's Open? If so, it comes down to money, doesn't it? The cost of holding a major tournament at Pebble Beach would have to be much more than at some of the private courses they normally use for the Women's Open.  Pebble doesn't need the "prestige" factor, and quite likely wouldn't want to tie up its course for that many weeks unless it was the Men's Open, IMO.

The USGA Women's Open. It has been held at Oakmont. Why not Pebble Beach? The Women's British Open is in St. Andrews this year.
