The ISPS Handa 2018 US Open Blind Championship was held April 5 through April 9 in Green Valley Arizona at the Haven Golf Course. Thirty-four golfers and their coaches representing Canada, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Israel and the United States participated in the tournament.

Seventy local volunteers helped with the tournament. Every golf/coach team had a score marker assigned to them and the score markers stayed with their player for the two days of the tournament. Other volunteers assisted with providing water on the course, transportation, awards dinner and guide dog care.
Transportation, to and from the airport as well as to and from the golf course, was provided by volunteers for those players who requested it.
