The nation’s golf spotlight will turn to Haverford Township next month when the U.S. Open comes to the Merion Golf Club.
The 2013 U.S. Open runs June 10 through June 16 at the Merion Golf Club. Those of you who are familiar with the club know that there is not much parking in the area, so people are being bused in from two remote parking lots, one at PPL Park in Chester and the other from Rose Tree Park in the Media area, so the crowds won’t be confined to the immediate Merion area.
No Phones, No Swearing
If you’re heading to the event, or even if you’re not, you may be surprised by some of the rules set up by the United States Golf Association, which include the item that you can get thrown out for “making rude, vulgar, or other inappropriate comments or gestures,” and spectators are not allowed to bring cell phones.
