Know Before You Go

Welcome PGA TOUR Fans!

The health and safety of all associated with the PGA TOUR and our global community continues to be our number one priority. The PGA TOUR has developed health and safety measures to promote a safe environment and quality experience on the golf course. As CDC guidelines as well as state and local requirements continue to evolve, PGA TOUR guidelines for on-site spectatorship and attendance are subject to change. Please visit your local tournament’s website for more information on important health and safety measures.


Stay close to the action at every PGA TOUR tournament by downloading the PGA TOUR Mobile App. The PGA TOUR App provides fans access to event information, tee times, real-time leaderboards, play-by-play, video highlights, news, statistics, 3D shot tracking and more.


All persons and items are subject to search prior to being granted access into the tournament. Persons found to be in possession of prohibited items or bags that exceed the permitted size specifications will be asked to return those items to their vehicle before being allowed to board shuttles or enter the tournament grounds. The tournament may not provide a bag check facility, so attendees are urged not to bring prohibited items.


To enhance the autograph experience for all spectators, while allowing players to properly prepare for competition, the PGA TOUR has established the following guidelines:

Bag Policy

No bags larger than 6"x6" (including carrying cases, backpacks, camera bags, or chair bags) are permitted through the gates. No clear, plastic, vinyl, or other carry items larger than 12"x6"x12" are permitted through the gates. For more information, please visit PGA TOUR Prohibited Items.


Lounge or oversized chairs with extended footrests, or seat cushions in a carrying case with pockets or compartments are not permitted through the gates. Collapsible chairs without chair bags and seat cushions that do not require a carrying case or have pockets or compartments are not permitted. All portable chairs must be removed from the course each night.
