There will be several temporary employment opportunities for individuals in the months and weeks leading up to the championship. Multiple USGA suppliers will be looking for additional support in various functions such as parking management, private security, and food and beverage services. Additional employment information will be made available as suppliers begin active recruitment.
The USGA coordinates an extensive local, regional and statewide team to support a safe and smooth arrival for all players, fans, volunteers, vendors, and staff traveling to the championship grounds. The primary goal of the transportation plan is to minimize vehicular traffic and congestion in the immediate vicinity, neighborhoods, and roadways surrounding The Country Club. We will do this by utilizing satellite parking lots and mass transit (MBTA) options to maximize an efficient shuttle system and maintain a secure public safety perimeter around the championship grounds and neighboring residences.
The USGA’s goal is to limit the inconvenience of Brookline residents as much as possible and to implement a parking and transportation plan that minimizes the impact on neighbors in the immediate proximity of The Country Club, allowing residents to continue with their day-to-day access and activities during the week of the championship. The USGA is working with the Brookline Police Department, Brookline Department of Public Works (DPW), hired traffic consultants, and several local supporting agencies to identify and develop road closures or modifications necessary to host a safe, efficient, and secure championship at The Country Club. It is expected that public and private roadways in the immediate vicinity of The Country Club will be impacted and require further traffic and access control measures during the week of the championship.
To further discourage and prevent fans and attendees from taking parking and transportation matters into their own hands (“attempt to park as close as possible”) and causing unwarranted congestion and safety issues in the local area, the Town of Brookline and USGA are working on a comprehensive plan that identifies the neighborhoods that will be impacted the most by the championship and require further access control, otherwise referred to as “limited access” areas. Residents who live within any predetermined limited access areas will be provided with resident and resident guest parking hangtags that will identify you as a resident of the neighborhood and grant you access to come and go freely. Residents will be instructed to place the hangtags on the rearview mirror which must be visible when approaching the traffic control point. Further information on physical distribution and obtaining additional resident and/or resident guest parking hangtags will be made available in the Spring of 2022.
Exact road modifications, closures, hours of operation, and limited residential access points for surrounding roadways and neighborhoods will be communicated in 2022 as plans are further finalized between the USGA, Town of Brookline, and The Country Club.
Yes. Residents that live within the planned limited access areas surrounding The Country Club, will have the ability to walk to the U.S. Open. Signage will be strategically placed to help guide you to the nearest championship admission gate in a safe and efficient manner. Residents who do not live within the planned limited access areas will be encouraged to follow the general parking, MBTA, or ride share guidelines that championship organizers will communicate in the Spring of 2022. There is no general parking in the immediate vicinity of The Country Club and all nearby street parking will be enforceable in accordance with prevailing Brookline ordinances and regulations.
Ride Share will only be allowed at designated area(s) that will be communicated in the Spring of 2022. There is no parking or staging for vehicles, so pickup times will need to be coordinated accordingly. Vehicles proceeding to the ride share location 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.
Fans are strongly encouraged to take the T to the U.S. Open. If you do intend to drive to the championship, please visit usopen.com to learn more about available parking options.

The primary goal for the USGA is to provide championship fans and the surrounding community with a safe and secure environment. The championship’s public safety plan encompasses security, parking and transportation, fire suppression, first-aid services, emergency medical services, and the support of other various public and private agencies that may be called upon to perform certain duties.
