The KPMG Women's PGA Championship is an accessible event, and we are dedicated to continually improving our efforts to ensure that you have access to all the Championship amenities. We welcome and encourage all feedback and suggestions from our guests. The following explains the services provided this year. For any accessibility-related questions please email us at DisabilityServices@pgahq.com. We will do our best to help you enjoy your Championship experience.

Wheelchair Accessibility
There are accessible pathways that connect parking, event entrances, the area around the Clubhouse including the practice range, each hole on the course, restrooms, food and beverage, and other amenities. Additionally, we encourage all guests with mobility disabilities to utilize personal forms of transportation, including wheelchairs and scooters. If you need to recharge your motorized wheelchair, you may do so at the First Aid Station near the Practice Range. Patrons should bring all cords and accessories needed to charge their devices. Chargers must use a 110-volt, 20 amp circuit. We will not be providing wheelchair or scooter rentals.

ADA Parking will be located at the front of Lot A which is located at the Norwood School (8821 River Rd, Bethesda, MD 20817). This is also the best location for disabled guest pickup/dropoff. From this location our disabled guests will be shuttled to the course. You will need a Disabled Person Parking placard, permit, or license plate to park in a disabled parking spot. Please display your placard, permit, or plates upon entering the parking lot and the traffic team will direct you to a disabled parking spot. The person to whom the placard or plate is issued to must be present in the vehicle, as a driver or passenger.
