Where to take in all the action at the 39th U.S. Open… PLUS a special stay and play package at The Broadmoor!
FEATURED BLEACHERS: Patrons can find bleachers on the first tee; the fourth, 10th and 15th and 16th greens; and between holes 12 and 13, 13 and 14, and 17 and 18; and on the 18th fairway. There are additional bleachers at the 18th green that are set back to afford views of the first and fourth tees.
HOT SPOT: The stacked bleachers at the 16th green—the last par 3 hole—also afford views of the 6th green and 17th tee. Adjacent concessions and restrooms naturally increase crowd size. “That will be the rowdy spot,” predicts Tournament Director Doug Habgood.
WHAT ABOUT A PLAYOFF? If 72 holes aren’t enough decide the tournament, fans already at the 18th won’t have far to go. The tied players will square off in a two-hole aggregate playoff on the tough par-3 4th and the visually intimidating par-4 18th, adjacent holes that both have water coming into play. In the event of a tie after two holes, the competitors return to 4 to begin sudden-death play.
BRING THE KIDS: Children under age 17 receive free admission with a ticketed adult. The Youth Golf Experience tent, located on the first hole of The Broadmoor West Course, will be open June 25-July 1. Conducted by the Junior Golf Alliance of Colorado, the Experience involves kids in various fun golf activities. They’ll learn about junior golf in Colorado and receive a Birdie Ball sporting U.S. Senior Open and JGAC logos.
SERVING SERVICE: The Colorado PGA is co-sponsoring a hospitality area called “The Bunker” located right behind the 18th green at the Clubhouse, where active-duty military, veterans and immediate family can get complimentary food and beverage.
- Classic accommodations for two nights (upgrade options available)

Available May 1 – October 31, 2018, for Friday and Saturday nights only.

8:30 A.M. Drive, Chip and Putt: The first local qualifying DC&P event ever conducted at the site of a major championship will take place at the 18th hole of the West Course.
