New U.S. Open Ticket Option Announced

New U.S. Open Ticket Option Announced

The USGA has recently announced a brand-new U.S. Open ticket option for 2018.

“Top of the Hill” will allow fans to experience all the action at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club—the host course of the 118th edition of one of golf’s best-loved majors.

Located amid the first four holes of the closing nine on top of the highest points on the property, “Top of the Hill” offers a social-centric ticket option. It will consist of an open-air facility with a beer garden-style atmosphere and a panoramic view of the course.

A ‘social’ setup

The new U.S. Open ticket option will include open-deck seating, a large screen broadcast of live championship coverage, a variety of culinary options and bar service with local craft beer and wine offerings available for an additional charge.

Tickets are available in limited quantities and can be purchased from usopen.com at the following daily prices: Monday or Tuesday $80; Wednesday $95; Thursday $165; Friday, Saturday or Sunday $185.

Sarah Hirshland, USGA senior managing director for Business Affairs, said: “We are always evaluating ways to innovate and elevate our fans’ U.S. Open experience.

“If we’re able to create more social and convenient options for fans, we’ll do it, and we feel these new ticket offerings provide just that.”

Ticket package

In addition to the new U.S. Open ticket option, a limited number of daily and multi-day ticket package options are available. These start from $60 for daily gallery tickets and $125 for package options.

The 118th U.S. Open Championship will be contested at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, N.Y., from June 11-17.

Established in 1895, the U.S. Open Championship is one among four of golf’s majors. The 117th championship, which was sensationally won by Brooks Koepka by a margin of four strokes, was played at the historic Erin Hills in Erin, Wisconsin.

Past winners of the tournament include world number one Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods.
