PGA TOUR Health and Safety Protocols
The health and safety of all associated with the PGA TOUR and our global community continues to be our No. 1 priority. An extensive set of COVID-19 health and safety measures developed in conjunction with CDC guidelines have been implemented to promote a safe environment and quality experience on the golf course. This includes the three Ws: Wear a Mask, Watch Your Distance, and Wash Your Hands. It takes the steadfast participation of everyone on-site to ensure a safe environment for our guests, players, caddies, volunteers and staff.
It is important that everyone on-site practices social distancing in order to help maintain a safe environment. While on-site, pay attention to visual and verbal cues for capacity, directional flow and viewing area guidelines. Social distancing will lead the way.
Masks are required at PGA TOUR tournaments at all times, both indoors and outdoors, with limited exceptions. Exceptions include:
- Medical Conditions that make wearing a mask difficult
- Children under the age of 2
- While actively eating or drinking
Guests should bring their own CDC approved face covering or cloth mask from home. Per CDC guidelines, a face shield is not an appropriate substitute for a face covering. Masks will be provided by the tournament to those guests who do not bring their own. Masks should fit snugly around the sides of the face and cover your nose, mouth and chin. Masks must be affixed prior to arrival at the main entry gate.
Prior to Arrival
Those who feel ill or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 will not be admitted to PGA TOUR tournaments. Please check your temperature before arrival to confirm you do not have a fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or more. For more information on symptoms and procedures for those experiencing them, please visit the CDC’s website, which can be found here.
Upon arrival to the event, each guest will be subject to a brief health questionnaire. Once an admissible result is received, guests will proceed through standard security checks and bag search in a safe and socially distant manner.
Signage & Guidelines
Guests will notice increased safety signage throughout the golf course, as well as visual and verbal reminders of safe behavior guidelines and Code of Conduct that must be adhered to while on-site. Failure to comply with any posted or verbal guidelines may result in consequential action, including expulsion from the tournament grounds.
Ropeline and Bleacher Policy
Consumption of food and beverage is prohibited within 10 feet of the ropeline. Masks must be worn at all times in this area, even when in possession of food and beverage.
PGA TOUR tournaments will have enhanced sanitization protocols in place to ensure all areas are routinely cleaned and sanitized. Sanitization and handwashing are encouraged throughout your time on-site. Guests are permitted to bring their own sanitizer from home.
Our PGA TOUR players can’t wait to see guests back on-site, but please understand, for the health and safety of everyone on property, no handshakes, first bumps, autographs, photographs or selfies, are permitted at this time. Please respect their space and watch your distance.
Feeling Ill On-site
If you begin to feel ill on-site, please return safely home or seek medical attention at the First Aid Tent.
The Final Putt
Once the final putt drops, please exit the tournament venue safely and patiently, while keeping socially distant from others.
