Prohibited Items:
Due to the events earlier this year and heightened security measures across our nation, the Charles Schwab Cup Championship will continue its normal security policies but expand screenings for ALL patrons, sponsors, volunteers, media and vendors attending or working the 2013 tournament.

Officials are asking everyone to participate in making the event safe and enjoyable by being aware of their surroundings during their visit to TPC Harding Park. Should a person see an activity that might be unusual or suspicious, they're urged to notify a member of CMPD, security personnel, or Tournament Official working the event. Everyone is urged to keep a simple phrase in mind: "See something, say something."

Since the safety and well-being of everyone is of the utmost importance, please adhere to standard tournament policies:
• No bags larger than a small purse 6x6x6, including carrying cases, backpacks, camera bags or chair bags (folding chairs are permitted - the sleeves that hold them are not) *
• No knives, firearms or weapons of any nature
• No video cameras (Monday - Sunday)
• No cameras (Thursday - Sunday)

• No radios or TVs
• No posters, signs or banners

All items are subject to search. You will be asked to return all unauthorized items to your car before you are allowed to board shuttles. Tournament does not provide a “check” facility, so attendees are urged not to bring restricted items.

*All portable chairs must be removed from the course each night.
Please note: Diaper bags and medical necessities will be permitted, but searched.
