There will be bleacher seating for 18,000 at various locations on the course. If the tournament comes down to the final hole on Sunday, there will be 5,834 grandstand seats on No. 18, the most in U.S. Open history.

If you’d prefer focusing on one hole, the scenic No. 16, which can range from a drivable 279 yards to 423 and is bordered to the west by Puget Sound, will have two grandstands. Numerous other locations will offer views of multiple holes.
