  • Cameras and video recorders
  • Coolers

Tips for Spectators

The following suggestions will ensure you have the most enjoyable experience possible:

  • Please do not ask for autographs prior to or during competition. There will be a designated autograph zone located on the pathway next to the #18 hole.
  • Please stay behind the gallery ropes and cooperate with the marshals' directions.
  • Please remain quiet and still throughout each shot until each player in the group has played.
  • Please watch your step and walk carefully. Running is prohibited on the golf course.
  • Daily drawsheets will be available at the Ticketing Counter and Spectator Information desk.

Inclement Weather Policy

Observe the leaderboards throughout the golf course for "Weather Warning" signs that will appear prior to inclement weather moving into the area. When this sign appears, spectators are advised to take precaution PRIOR to play being suspended. If the siren sounds, seek shelter immediately. Remember, lighting is arbitrary, random and unpredictable – it can cause extreme or fatal injury.

Here are some precautions you can take if you are caught on the golf course in a lightning storm:

  • Avoid open areas, high ground and isolated trees
  • Avoid water (swimming pools, lakes, ponds, rivers), beaches, and boats
  • Seek shelter inside a building or in a nearby automobile, but NOT a convertible or golf cart
  • Stay away from doors, windows, and metal objects (such as pipes, faucets, or metal fencing)
  • Avoid contact with electrical devices or metal (including some golf clubs, umbrellas, golf carts, etc.)
  • Do not lean against concrete walls
