PGA Championship Update: Spectators Allowed & Tickets Available

We’re thrilled to say the PGA of America has announced a limited number of spectators will be allowed to attend the 103rd PGA Championship this year! The official announcement states that “the decision to play with a limited number of spectators on-site was made in coordination with the state of South Carolina, MUSC Health (the official medical services provider of the 2021 PGA Championship) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”. Since then, all ticket holders have been notified of their order status via email.

What to expect at the 2021 PGA Championship

As we mentioned above, a limited number of spectators will be allowed to attend this year. The PGA of America has designed a comprehensive set of COVID-19 health and wellness measures to promote a responsible environment at the 2021 PGA Championship. The list of policies and procedures listed on their website includes:
Icons for face coverings, social distancing, hand washing stations, and more

  • Face coverings will be required for all spectators, staff, and volunteers who are two years and older (including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine).
  • Social distancing measures will be in place, and those attending will be expected to maintain appropriate social distancing at the PGA.
  • Hand sanitization stations will be available throughout the grounds.
  • Mobile ticketing & cashless transactions to create contactless experiences during your time on-site. Please keep in mind, no cash will be accepted.

We highly recommend reading through the PGA Championship’s Spectator Guide to learn more about policies and procedures you can expect while you’re there:
