Help please in planning US Golf Open trip to San Francisco

Jump to last reply

I would like to attend the next US Open golf tournament in San Francisco but having never before attended a US Open I am seeking advice from those who have. I posted a similar question on the Lounge forum but am hoping others here will be able to help.

I have been to SF before and love it. For a trip involving the US Open, where should we stay? We would like to do things other than the tournament, such as before and after and at nights -- should we stay near the golf course, or is it easy to stay downtown and commute to the tournament?

As for the tournament, can I simply buy tickets (or like the Masters are they very hard to get) and then walk around and see golfers, plant chairs by a hole of my preference and wait there, have access to any bleachers, etc.? Are there some areas or holes that are blocked off for corporate sponsors? I see on the website that tickets for the "1895 Club", "Trophy Club" and grounds are possibilities...is it better to pay for one of the clubs than just get grounds tickets? If I get grounds tickets only, is that a good way to see the US Open?

I am not experienced in going to golf tournaments, but my spouse would like such a trip and I would like to arrange it. I would really appreciate advice from those who have been to other US Opens.

Thank you!
