Take the LIRR to the 118th U.S. Open Championship at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club
June 11-17, 2018

The MTA Long Island Rail Road is the easiest and most convenient way to get to the U.S. Open. The LIRR is committed to providing safe and comfortable transportation. Train service will be provided in both directions on the Montauk Branch and will accommodate customers traveling from either New York City or Eastern Long Island. Shinnecock Hills Golf Club is located 85 miles from New York’s Penn Station and the trip is expected to take approximately two hours.

Golf fans will utilize a temporary train platform that will be constructed in close proximity to the championship grounds. After exiting the train, fans will proceed through security screening prior to crossing a pedestrian bridge to reach the championship grounds. Provisions for persons with limited mobility will be in place to enable access to the championship. Regular fares will be charged. Tickets purchased after boarding the train carry an additional charge, so the LIRR encourages golf fans to purchase tickets in advance from a Ticket Machine, staffed Ticket Office, or through MTA eTix, a mobile ticketing App. Please visit for information on schedules and fares (information will be posted on or about May 1).
