119th US Golf Open

For Father’s Day, my family and I celebrated my dad by going to the 119th US Golf Open in Pebble Beach, California! In case you missed the previous post, I grew up in a very golf-friendly household and I can definitely say that I got my love of golf from my dad. Since I live a few hours north from my family, we met up in San Jose where we spent the night before we watched the US Open!

My aunt and her family joined us for the weekend, as well! We grabbed dinner at Dish N Dash, a Middle Eastern casual dining restaurant. I ordered the beef shawarma with the aged basmati rice and a side of hummus. Topped it off with some garlic yogurt on the side too *drools*

On Sunday, we left the hotel very early to make it to Pebble Beach by seven in the morning. When we got there, it was already packed and there were several busses going in and out of the parking lot to take us to the golf course! Golf fanatics are something else, I tell ya. When we got to the course, we had to go through check-in and then we stopped by the merchandise tent where I dropped $300 on US Open merchandise – came out with a long-sleeve top, keychain, bag tag, shirts and a jacket (I will reason that I can use the jacket at work when it gets colder again!).

My mom got us tickets for the Trophy Club so we were able to enjoy some decent food and clean porta-potties! By clean, I mean, they actually flushed… thank heavens. I was disappointed because the food selections in the Trophy Club were waaaaaaay overpriced – $15 for a tiny bowl of chicken teriyaki? Yikes!

Despite the bathroom situation and the expensive meals, I really had such a great time! I got to see so many of golf’s biggest stars (Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth, Henrik Stenson, Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia, Adam Scott… to name a few) and it was so, so fun. The hype! The walking! The views of the Pacific Ocean! It was spectacular.

And on top of that, I got to high-five Dustin Johnson and I’m thinking that I may never wash my left hand … ever again.

The US Golf Open is a national championship of golf in the United States and it was the very first professional tournament I saw in person and it did not disappoint. I’m already looking forward to 2027 when they’ll be back on this beautiful course. Until the next adventure!

    I love how your family is super into golf. Ok, you still need to take me one day, hehe. Mmm, the meal you had looks delicious. IS THAT HUMMUS?? MMMM. Oh man, $300 for merch – you’re a super fan!! You got a good amount of goodies with that $$$. Forget fancy nancy, it is bougie eena, hehe.

    Oh wow, the field where the US open took place looks really cool! Next thing you know, 2027 is already around the corner – really quick! Glad you had fun out there!

    Oh my word, the food pic looks so GOOD it’s making me hungry. That is such an awesome Father’s Day present for your dad! I’ve never been to the US open but it def seems like a great experience to see such a thing. They always overprice food like that esp in places like that, I wish they could just stop, lol. There are porta john’s that flush?? I didn’t know that even existed LOL! Glad you had a good time overall! 2027 will probably come in the blink of an eye… hehe 🙂

    I’m not at all into golf but I can see that this was a fantastic experience for you and your family. What a shame about the food prices though, that’s really unfair. Your comment about never washing your hand again made me chuckle, Eena, that’s too funny! Lisa x

    That shawarma with the garlic yoghurt looks absolutely amazing. It’s so cool that you were able to see so many big names in the Golf world and that you had such a wonderful weekend with your Dad!

    I love that you can do something like this as a family and all enjoy it! I know this is probably really dumb, but I’ve never actually thought about watching golf live in the grounds and the walking involved. Dumb, I know. I hope you enjoy all of your merch!! It sounds like you guys had a great time, and your food looks great x

    Glad you had fun! I’m not into gold but it was cool you got to see Tiger Woods! I would’ve loved the Middle Eastern restaurant, I especially love lamb, rice and tzatziki yogurt!

    This looked like such a cool family day out. Love how many golf pro’s you saw too. I always imagine that you don’t get to see any actual “famous” golfers during tournaments, or that it would be incredibly difficult.

    What a great way to celebrate Fathers Day! I think that sometimes experiences make the best gifts. The day sounds like so much fun, although it is a shame that you have to pay more for decent toilets and that the food was so expensive- we recently went to the horse races and found the exact same thing! They always overcharge at events like these I think!

    That sounds like a great way to celebrate, especially for a golf loving family! I am a firm believer that experiences are better than physical gifts, and this is the perfect example.

    Looks like you had an amazing time with your family! That merchandise was so expensive, is it the jacket you’re wearing in the photos?
