Next week the world will spend 4 days with the Championship renowned Merion Golf Club for the 113th US Open. When Merion Golf Club hosts the 2013 US Open, June 13th thru 17th it will have hosted it’s 19th Championship. The first for Merion East was the US Amateur in 1916 won by Chuck Evans.

Winner of 18 career Major Championships, Jack Nicklaus has said this about Merion Golf Club – “Acre for Acre, it may be the best test of golf in the world.”

We only felt fitting as the world experiences one of golf’s greats that we provide something uniquely great – US Open Social Media Experience by Turf Republic. Next week we will be launching a fantastic social media experience for you to enjoy as Merion hosts the 113th US Open.

To kick off our US Open Social Media Experience by Turf Republic we wanted to share some of the great history of Merion Golf Club and it isn’t just about golf. In some ways, the return of the US Open to Merion Golf Club is a reunion.
