The induction ceremony will air live on Golf Channel on Monday, June 10, at 7 p.m. ET and will help kick off the week of the 124th U.S. Open.

The 2024 event also marks a “return” to Pinehurst for the World Golf Hall of Fame, which 50 years ago opened at Pinehurst before moving to St. Augustine, Fla., in 1998. Earlier this month, the World Golf Hall of Fame opened its new location as part of USGA’s Golf House Pinehurst, a seven-acre campus located footsteps from the Pinehurst Resort & Country Club main clubhouse.

The new World Golf Hall of Fame location now sits alongside USGA’s equipment-testing and research facility, the visitor-friendly USGA Experience and an outdoor educational landscape feature. The World Golf Hall of Fame and USGA Experience are now open to the public, and admission is free through June.
