US Open Golf
A trio of Americans have laid claim to the last three US Open championships, but there's always a full field of multinational talent gunning for the top prize. This year will be no different as golf pros and spectators from around the world arrive on charter flights to the US Open to watch the action unfold at Shinnecock Hills in Southhampton, NY.
Defending champion Brooks Koepka won last year's title by a comfortable four-stroke margin. He was preceded by fellow Americans Dustin Johnson (2016) and Jordan Speith (2015).
2018 will be the fifth time the US Open will have been hosted at Shinnecock Hills, regarded as one of the country's most storied golf courses. The Southhampton club first hosted the even in 1896, the second year the event was ever held. To put the club's history into perspective, it is the only course to host the event in three different centuries.
The current course was designed by William Flynn in 1931.

The vast majority of commercial air traffic coming to Long Island arrives via John F. Kennedy (JFK), La Guardia (LGA) and, to a lesser extent, Long Island MacArthur Airport (ISP). Private travellers booking charter flights to the US Open have several options that are considerably closer, and less congested. Francis S. Gabreski (FOK) is a joint civilian-military airport just 17 miles from Southampton in Westhampton Beach. It has a pair of 5,000-foot runways, and another 9,000-foot runway. Smaller private jets can access East Hampton Airport (HTO), which is just 10 miles from the city.
Accommodations: The Easterner Motel, Southampton Inn, Southampton Long Island Hotel.
