The U.S. Open golf tournament is played on different golf courses each year, but some courses host the tournament with regularity with Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, Pennsylvania serving as the site the most times as of the 2016 U.S. Open.

Oakmont has played host to the U.S. Open in 1927, 1935, 1953, 1962, 1973, 1983, 1994, 2007, and most recently in 2016 with Tommy Armour, Sam Parks, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, Johnny Miller, Larry Nelson, Ernie Els, Angel Cabrera and Dustin Johnson winning titles each year, respectively.

The next closest, in terms of most U.S. Open Championships hosted by a single club, the Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, New Jersey has hosted seven competitions, though not all on the same course. Five of Baltusrol's Opens were played on its Lower Course, and two other times the U.S. Open was played at the club's Old Course, which no longer exists.

U.S. Open Winners at Oakmont

The first time the Oakmont Country Club played host to the U.S. Open Championship was in 1927 when Tommy Armour took home the title; after that, the Open didn't return to Pennsylvania until the 1935 Open Championship, which Sam Parks Jr., a local of the area, won.

1953 saw Ben Hogan take home the trophy while 1962 gave the prize to the Golden Bear Jack Nicklaus emerge into the field from the amateur league, beating out rival and top-ranking golfer Arnold Palmer to earn his first professional championship win.

In 1973, Johnny Miller scored one of the most famous rounds of golf ever played in the final round of that year's U.S. Open, soaring from six points away from the lead to a victory at 5-under par; Larry Nelson took home the prize at Oakmont in 1983, but it wasn't nearly as memorable.

The 1994 U.S. Open Championship saw the rise of another golf legend when Ernie Els broke onto the scene with his first championship win, though it became a controversial one when a referee ruled his ball could be moved due to a temporarily immovable obstacle. Els went on to win the game in a sudden-death playoff against Loren Roberts.

The 2007 U.S. Open saw a year where no one finished under par, with Angel Cabrera taking home the championship title with a 5-over score, but players seemed to fare much better when they returned in 2016 and Dustin Johnson took home his first U.S. Open win, coming in four under par.

Other Courses That Several Hosted U.S. Opens

The Oakmont Country Club isn't the only club to play host to the U.S. Open Championships multiple times, Winged Foot Golf Club, Pebble Beach Golf LinksOlympic Club and Merion Golf Club have all hosted the tournament five times.

The South Course at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Township, Mich., has also been the site of the U.S. Open six times in 1924, 1937, 1951, 1961, 1985, and 1996.
