FAR HILLS, N.J. – Tickets for the 2015 U.S. Open Championship, conducted by the United States Golf Association (USGA) and scheduled for June 15-21 at Chambers Bay in University Place, went on sale today, June 9.

This is the first time the U.S. Open will be held in the Pacific Northwest in its 115-year history and the fourth time the championship has been conducted at a publicly-owned course.

A variety of daily and weekly ticket options for the U.S. Open, with prices starting at $50 and $450 respectively, are available for purchase at usga.org/tickets or usopen.com :

1895 Club: This climate-controlled pavilion located in the North Meadow (near the 13th hole) is the highest end spectator ticket option available for purchase. The 1895 Club offers the convenience of an all-inclusive food and beverage package featuring breakfast, a buffet lunch with hot entrees, afternoon snacks and full bar service throughout the day in a custom designed hospitality environment.

Trophy Club: Also located in the North Meadow, the Trophy Club is a climate-controlled pavilion offering ample seating, live network coverage of the championship in a sports bar like setting, and a variety of food and beverage options that may be purchased at an additional charge.

Gallery: Gallery tickets provide access to the grounds of Chambers Bay and to all concession facilities and grandstands throughout the course.

Weekly packages: Each ticket type can be purchased as a week-long ticket package. All weekly packages include a playoff ticket for Monday, June 22 (if needed).
