  • Devices may be used to capture video, audio and photos (content) in all areas throughout tournament week for personal use only; no commercial use.
  • No live streaming or real-time coverage (e.g. no shot-by-shot coverage). 
  • Data use (e.g. texting) is permitted in all areas throughout tournament week. 
  • Phone calls are allowed only in areas away from play. 
  • Please be respectful of play and do not interfere with players, caddies or media. 
  • All postage signage and instructions from tournament staff must be observed. Failure to comply with this policy may result in the revocation of your ticket. 

Should you notice an activity or individual that might be suspicious, please notify a uniformed law enforcement officer, private security personnel, a tournament official, or dial 911. 


If inclement weather is approaching, a “Weather Warning” notification will be posted on all electronic scoreboards on the course. When this message appears, spectators are advised to take immediate precaution by evacuating bleachers and hospitality tents. In the event of a “Severe Weather” warning and a suspension of play, please proceed to the bus loading area to be returned to your car for safety. A suspension of play is preceded by an air horn signal. Suspension of play is a stoppage of play, not necessarily a cancellation of play for the day. Notification of continuation of play will be given in each parking lot.


There is no specific attire that you are required to wear to the tournament. However, we recommend comfortable walking shoes and sunglasses. The weather can change at any time. Check the forecast before you head out to make sure you are prepared.
