Record Pace of Registrations Signals High Demand for 2017 PGA Championship Tickets
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (June 20, 2016) – The PGA of America announced today that ticket registrations for the 2017 PGA Championship, slated for Charlotte’s Quail Hollow Club Aug. 7-13, 2017, are outpacing those of past PGA Championships, suggesting the demand for tickets will be extraordinarily high when they go on sale to the public this August.
“The amazing volume of ticket registrations indicates that the actual sale of tickets will be very strong,” said 2017 PGA Championship Director Jason Mengel. “Based on this demand, we anticipate the most popular ticket types – including single-day access to the championship rounds and weekly Wanamaker Club passes that offer upgraded amenities – to be among the first to sell out. So we’re urging those that want the best selection of ticket options when they go on sale in August to register immediately to avoid missing out.”
To ensure widespread access to the most coveted ticket types, PGA Championship tickets are sold exclusively through a free, no obligation, online registration process. Fans can visit www.pgachampionship.com to hold their place in line – first come, first served – to purchase tickets when they go on sale in August of 2016.
A variety of ticket options will be available to suit every level of interest, including:
• Weekly Wanamaker Club Ticket Package – This package provides admittance to the grounds for all seven days of the Championship plus access to the Wanamaker Club, an air-conditioned, sports-bar-like atmosphere, located on course, featuring televisions, luxury restrooms and premium food and beverage options available for purchase. Each weekly Wanamaker Club ticket package comes in the form of seven individual daily tickets (one for Monday, one for Tuesday, etc.) and is $600 per package.
• Weekly Grounds Ticket Package – Perfect for the avid golf enthusiast, this package provides access to the Championship Grounds at Quail Hollow Club for all seven days of the Championship (Monday through Sunday), and is $295 per package.
