It is well known that 'The Open' = Birtish Open decided a long time ago to have a fixed rotation/rota:
St Andrews, Muirfield, Royal St George’s, Royal Liverpool, Royal Troon, Royal Lytham and St Annes, Carnoustie, Royal Portrush, Turnberry
The last one deserves a threat of its own for other reasons non-related to golf, but I do not want to talk about it :)
Do you think it is time the USGA adopted a fixed rota of US Open venues?
Which would be the ideal venues for a US Open?
Pinehurst 2014, 2024, XXXX?
Oakmont 2016, 2025, XXXX?
Shinnecock 2018, 2026, XXXX?
Pebble Beach 2019, 2027, XXXX?
It is already happening.

The The Open is oldest tournament, and as you stated was determined a long time ago is rotated among their elite courses in the UK. With all the courses available in the US should we just limit it to a few on a rotating basis every ten years. I say open it up to more courses, after all it is the US Open and there are a lot of states with worthy courses with emphasis always on old public courses. With respect.
