Spectators should keep in mind that the players' first responsibility during championship week is to compete for the national championship. Spectators should not approach a player for an autograph from the time immediately preceding the player's starting time up to and including the player's completion of her round, including the time when the player is at the practice range and practice green or en route to the first tee. This policy applies to practice rounds as well as championship rounds.
Cameras and camcorders are only allowed on-site at the course during practice rounds, Monday through Wednesday, for personal use only and without their cases.
A Disabled Services facility will be located at the main spectator entrance to provide disabled spectators with complimentary scooter carts. The Disabled Services Committee will have a limited number of scooter carts available for the disabled on a first-come, first-serve basis; no advanced reservations will be taken. Special viewing areas for disabled spectators will be provided at various locations around the course.
Two first-aid stations will be located on the course - one at the main spectator entrance and one near the clubhouse. Both first-aid stations will be staffed with emergency medical technicians. If a medical emergency arises, please notify a U.S. Women's Open volunteer or USGA official.

The USGA will have meteorology staff on-site monitoring the possibility of inclement weather. If a storm is approaching, special "weather warning" signs will be posted on leaderboards around the course. When the sign appears, spectators are advised to take immediate precautions prior to any suspension of play. Grandstands will be cleared when weather warning signs are posted. If play is suspended, close your umbrella and seek shelter immediately. In the event of a weather warning, please avoid: open areas, hilltops, high places, isolated trees, golf carts and wire fences.
