Admission Policies


Tickets and/or credentials, in the form provided by the Professional Golfers’ Association of America (“PGA”) or its subsidiary PGA Tournament Corporation, Inc. (“PTC”) will be required for admission into the Championship. All admission tickets issued by PGA or PTC granting access to the Championship are licenses that may be revoked by the PGA or PTC in their sole discretion for any reason or no reason at all. Please retain your ticket or credential at all times as security personnel will not allow admission into the event for individuals without appropriate credentials. Please do not tamper or interfere with the bar code presented on the ticket or credential. PGA/PTC is not responsible for lost or stolen tickets and/or credentials.

Re-Admission Policy

There will be no daily re-entry to the grounds. If you leave the grounds, you must have an unscanned ticket to return to the Championship. Once your ticket has been scanned, it will no longer provide admission. The only exception is when the Weather Warning signs have been posted.

Refund Policy

Unless otherwise determined by PGA Tournament Corporation or The PGA of America, in their sole discretion, there shall be no refunds, rainchecks, exchanges or replacements of tickets except as provided for in the following Event Cancellation / Weather Policy outlined in the full Championship ticket terms and conditions.

Junior Admission Policy

As part of the Championship’s mission to grow interest and participation in the game of golf, juniors 15 years of age and younger will be admitted into the Championship grounds for free when accompanied by a ticketed adult. Each ticketed adult will be permitted up to four (4) junior grounds admissions per day at no additional charge. Junior tickets may be picked up on-site at the Admissions Office located at the Main Spectator Entrance on the day of admission.

Junior tickets cannot be obtained in advance and will be available regardless of a sell-out.

Please note, junior tickets do not gain access into private hospitality areas or clubs.

Children under the age of 2 do not require an admission ticket to enter the Championship.

Military Admission Policy

To honor the men and women who serve our country in the Armed Forces, the Championship is pleased to offer Active Duty, Retirees*, Veterans, Reserve, National Guard, and their accompanying guest (limit one) complimentary daily grounds access to the Championship.

Upon arrival, military personnel must go to the Ticket Office at the Main Spectator Entrance to present their identification card in exchange for daily grounds tickets. Please note, these tickets cannot be upgraded to alternative venues, but are eligible for the junior admission policy.
