Spectator Guidelines

5 05 2011

Find Out When Your Favorite Players Tee Off

Thursday and Friday pairings are determined before the tournament begins, with each golfer playing one day in the morning and the other day in the afternoon. Saturday and Sunday pairings are based on a player’s score, with the leaders teeing off last. Free daily pairing sheets will also be available at the tournament.

Have a Plan

How do you plan to watch your favorite players on the course-“Parade Style” or “Cross-Country Style”? Pick a spot and watch the field pass by (“Parade Style”) or follow a particular player or group around the course (“Cross-Country Style”).

Arrive Early

Arrive early to reserve a spot, especially if you plan on watching the tournament “Parade Style.” On Thursday and Friday, groups simultaneously start on the first and tenth holes. Most people watch the action on the back nine holes, which may give you the opportunity to get a better view of the players on the front nine.

Daily Pairing Sheet and Course Map

Pick up a daily pairing sheet to find out when the players tee off and the order of the groups. Pairing sheets include a course map, and are available near entrances and at selected locations on the tournament grounds. Plan ahead using our course map.

The pros usually play in 3somes on Thursday and Friday and 2somes on the weekends. Check the scoreboards to find out who the leaders are and where they are on course. One way to tell the players from a distance is to look for their caddies, who wear vests with their player’s name on the back.

Proper Apparel

Be sure to check the weather to determine proper apparel. Always bring a rain jacket or poncho, and wear light colored and cool clothing on hot and mostly sunny days. Also, be sure to wear comfortable shoes, preferably with flat soles to avoid injury that may result due to uneven terrain.


Cell phones are allowed on course.  Please make sure your ringer is set to Silent.  You may use cell phones to make calls in designated call areas. Call centers will be available at the 9th Tee, clubhouse area, and near the driving rage area to make outgoing calls.

Special Services

Special services are available to any patron needing assistance. Special services is located in front of the clubhouse and provides access to and from the handicap viewing areas on the 9th green, 18th green, and to and from hospitality venues. People in need of these services may drive their car to the special services at the clubhouse through the main gate where valet parking is available. Access through the gate requires a handicapped license plate or tag. Special Services can be reached throughout tournament week at the following numbers:

Other Tips

  • Review the course map prior to arriving at the tournament.
  • Carpool whenever possible and remember where your car is parked.
  • Tickets must be prominently displayed at all times.
  • Wear headgear and sunglasses for protection from the sun and use sun block.
  • Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration.
  • Concession stands are located at the clubhouse, 5th green, 7th tee, 9th green, 13th tee and the 16th green.
  • Familiarize yourself with the 1st Aid Stations located on-site.
  • ATMs are located near the backside of the clubhouse.
  • Volunteers in Information Services, wearing “Ask Me” pins, will be able to answer any questions you may have while on-site.
  • Stay behind the gallery ropes and cooperate with the marshals.
  • Kneel or sit down if you are in the front row.
  • Remain still through each shot and do not move until all players in the group have played or completed the hole.
  • Walk carefully-never run.

In the event of an emergency, contact any uniformed tournament Marshal or Law Enforcement personnel in order to expedite medical assistance.
