I'm new here. Sorry if there is already a thread on this but i am having massive problems trying to sort out going to the US Open in June 2014.
I'm an Australian who will be holidaying and heading to the 2014 US Open at Pinehurst.
I have booked the nearest hotel i could find which is in Raleigh.
I intend to go on Saturday and Sunday and will buy the tickets from the USGA website for $135 each day, which is all good.
My big question is - will there be return public transportation from Raleigh to Pinehurst??
There only seems to be tour groups which have the big pricey packages or expensive limousines from the airport. I thought it would be so much easier. I have searched the net relentlessly.
Am i best to just hire a car? (i've never driven on the other side of the road in my life) or should i just wait until a later date to see if there will be public transport? Surely there would be wouldn't there?
Also, do they only mail tickets out?... there doesn't seem to be an E-Ticket option?
I've asked the USGA some of these questions via the website, but their answers are very basic.
ie. there will be free shuttles in a 2 mile vicinity of Pinehurst where the car drop off point is
