What is the Open Works Program? How does a business or individual get involved with the U.S. Open?

On January 24, 2022, the USGA announced the Open Works Program, an initiative designed to allow diverse Brookline businesses and residents to receive priority for the labor and supplier needs connected to the 2022 U.S. Open Championship. The program will create an equitable and inclusive process for Brookline businesses and residents to register into the USGA’s U.S. Open supplier and employment registration portal, located at www.usga.org/openworks.

The USGA is encouraging diverse and locally-owned businesses and individuals to provide supplier needs and labor support for the championship, which will be held at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass. Small, women, minority, LGBTQIA, people with disabilities, and veterans with service related disabilities owned businesses and individuals are invited to visit www.usga.org/openworks to learn about current opportunities the USGA and its national contractors and suppliers are seeking support for in the planning and execution of the championship. Businesses and residents will have a chance to enter information and specify the services or labor opportunities they are interested in offering or applying for through the U.S. Open supplier and employment registration portal. With consent from the business and/or individual, the USGA will match the registrant with its contractors and suppliers seeking like-minded products, equipment, and/or manpower.
