The Country Club is located in Brookline, Mass., approximately five miles from downtown Boston. Due to the densely populated and residential nature of The Country Club’s location, the USGA has established satellite fan parking options where complimentary shuttle transportation will be provided to and from the Championship grounds. Given limited capacities at satellite fan parking venues, all parking must be prepaid and reserved in advance of the Championship. 

Ticket holders will be contacted in May and provided an opportunity to purchase a parking pass based on their ticket package and point of origin. Further information, including parking lot location(s), will be communicated to ticket holders once parking passes go on-sale.

Please Note: Parking passes will be limited and are subject to sellout. There is NO general fan parking or parking for fans with disabilities available in the immediate vicinity of The Country Club. All local street parking will be enforceable in accordance with prevailing Brookline ordinances and regulations and roads in the general vicinity of The Country Club are subject to closure and traffic restrictions. All other U.S. Open parking is by permit and parking pass only.

Parking & Transportation Services for Fans with Disabilities

The USGA is committed to providing a positive and user-friendly experience for all fans with disabilities. Accessible parking spaces for all vehicles displaying the appropriate HD/DP license plates or placards will be reserved at all parking locations. Fans requiring lift-equipped transportation should contact the USGA Admissions Department at tickets@usga.org ahead of the Championship to receive specific parking instructions.

Ride Share

Fans traveling from points east of The Country Club – and fans who live in the Brookline, Boston, Cambridge, Chestnut Hill areas – are encouraged to take ride share services to Larz Anderson Park. U.S. Open Ride Share and passenger drop-off will only be allowed at the designated area at Larz Anderson Park, accessed via Avon Street, and is located within a 10-minute walk to Gate 6.

To avoid traffic restrictions and heavier congestion, fans traveling on I-95 from points west and north and south of Boston – and fans who live in the Newton, Needham, Dedham, Waltham, Wellesley, and Weston areas – are encouraged to take ride share services to Lot X (37 A Street, Needham, MA 02494) where complimentary shuttle transportation will be provided to and from The Country Club.

There is no parking or staging for vehicles at either Ride Share location, so pick-up times will need to be coordinated accordingly. Vehicles proceeding to the Ride Share locations will be instructed to follow directional signs and parking attendants to the appropriate pick-up and drop-off location. Due to traffic restrictions, access is limited to vehicles no larger than a 12-passenger van or limousine. Ride share vehicles are NOT permitted to pick-up or drop-off at any other location around the Championship grounds.  All other U.S. Open parking is by permit and parking pass only.
