I am a local neighbor, what can I expect in terms of noise?

As construction and vendor activity begins increasing in mid-March, it is anticipated there will be added daytime noise around the championship site. In the weeks leading up to the championship, the construction hours of operation will steadily get longer and longer. As such, the USGA is working with the Town of Brookline to establish a noise variance for the associated work.

The approximate daytime hours of construction are as follows: March 7:00am-5:00pm, April 7:00am-6:30pm, May 7:00am-7:00pm, June 1-12 6:00am-9:00pm for final preparations. During the week of the U.S. Open (June 13-19), the USGA, The Country Club, its suppliers, public safety and law enforcement partners will conduct a coordinated and thorough U.S. Open overnight servicing and restocking program that will take place between the hours of 9:00pm-5:00am. Recognizing deliveries will not be able to take place during the daytime hours of play, servicing and restocking will be completed overnight to ensure the integrity of the championship grounds and security perimeter. More information on this potential for neighbor impact will be communicated in the Spring of 2022, including a public noise variance hearing at a TBD date..
