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.

Masks/Face Coverings

  • Indoors: Per CDC Guidelines, regardless of vaccination status, masks are required at all times indoors or in fully enclosed spaces, unless actively eating or drinking.

  1. Autographs can only be obtained at designated Autograph Zones.

Onsite Transactions and Payments

In partnership with Mastercard®, the PGA TOUR has worked to enable contactless payments across key point of sale locations on-course so guests can purchase the things they love using a safer cashless method in a clean environment. At PGA TOUR tournaments, guests are encouraged to “tap-and-go” with their contactless credit card at checkout at applicable events and vendors.
