US Golf Open 2013 for Spectators and Volunteers

By joining the United States Golf Association or Homepage keen golfers and other tourists can obtain tickets - so long as they plan about 18 months ahead e.g. in 2013 from June 13 -16 Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pennsylvania. Membership, particularly from outside the USA, gives access to buying single day or weekly package tickets OR as I did this year becoming a Volunteer - where free tickets and access are given for a few hours work on four of the seven days of the tournament plus some free parts to a uniform etc. Try it - membership is at reasonable prices starting at US $70 which also gives free caps, towels, buggy tags, rule books and the like - and a option to attend by purchasing tickets. yes you need to find your own travel and accommodation nearby to Merion Golf Club - why not use VT? I have been to three majors already - happy to help on VT.

Good Luck and Good Golfing by the Rules

The USGA also has an extensive information service on golf rules and follow up support for Members.

NB this is not an advertisement but a strong VT Member recommendation of the way to see one of the four major golf tournaments each year for enthusiasts and golfers alike.

Pros and Cons
