To help lessen the impact on many of the area’s two-lane roads, shuttles will be bringing spectators from as far away as Washington Dulles International Airport, in Northern Virginia.

Montgomery County is directing all spectators arriving by car to park at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds and the Crown Farm property off Interstate 270 in Gaithersburg.

The U.S. Golf Association will operate roughly 180 shuttle buses from both parking areas. They will run continuously and drop off spectators near the club’s main admission gate. Spectators also can take a Red line Metrorail to the Grosvenor-Strathmore Station in Bethesda. Shuttle service to the course is available, but spectators must make reservations.

“It’s tough getting back and forth from work, but it just means I go Bradley [Road] instead of River Road,” said Patrick Coffey, who lives about a mile from the club. Neighbor Laurence Richard is hosting a family that has rented their house along the course to spectators, and like Mr. Coffey, said additional cars won’t be a bother.

“The impact on the community is that it brings people from all over,” she said. “If we, immediate neighbors, aren’t welcoming, who will be?”
