Uber has teamed up with Callaway Golf to provide US Open fans a one-of-a-kind-experience for the tournament. Limited edition SUVs complete with ice cold Arnold Palmers, golf umbrellas ready for rain or shine and other surprises will be available through the Uber app for free rides to and from Merion Golf Club Course.
One lucky rider will win a pair of tickets to the Saturday, June 15 round of the US Open, courtesy of Uber Philadelphia.
When is this available?
This promotion is running during the US Open, from June 13 – 16, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. only.
- Download the Uber app for your smartphone.
- From June 13 – 16, users who open the Uber app will see a new ride option: CALLAWAY.
- Select this option, and you will have an SUV at your disposal to take you to or from Merion Golf Club for free.
Where do I get picked-up or dropped-off at the US Open?
Hannum Drive in Ardmore, PA is the only place to get picked up & dropped off near the course! Plenty of streets will be closed off and detours will be up – this will be the easiest way to ensure you connect with your driver quickly and efficiently.
What about my phone? I heard that phones aren’t allowed at the tournament.
Although there are no phones allowed on the course, the USGA has a phone check for when you enter and leave so you can still bring your cell along. These phone checks can be found at the Rose Tree and Ardmore gates.
What if I want to go somewhere other than the US Open?
The free Uber rides through #MyCallawayDriver are only available for trips to or from the US Open, but we’re also offering a discount for first time Uber users. Just download the app and enter the promo code: CALLAWAYUBER for a $20 discount off of any Uber ride.
