PGA Championship sees record ticket sales, limited tickets still available
NEW YORK, NY – With less than 100 days until Bethpage Black hosts its first-ever PGA Championship, a record number of fans worldwide have already purchased tickets, making this one of the fastest selling events in Championship history.
Although week-long grounds tickets are sold out, the PGA of America confirmed today there are still a limited number of single-day tickets available for the Championship to be played at Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, New York on May 13-19, 2019.
To date, Championship tickets have been purchased by fans from 49 states and 52 different countries. Additionally, nearly 3,500 volunteers representing 45 states and 17 different countries have registered to be a part of the 101st PGA Championship.
“The fan response for tickets and volunteer positions has been phenomenal,” said Scott Reid, 2019 PGA Championship Director. “We’re quickly approaching a sellout on the weekend but do have a limited number of daily tickets and upgraded weekly packages remaining for the most in-demand days. For fans who want a unique behind-the-scenes experience, there are still a number of volunteer positions available. With this high demand for tickets and volunteering, we encourage fans to act quickly while options are available.”
With a sellout expected, remaining single-day tickets for Monday through Sunday can be purchased online or via mobile at www.pga.com/tickets.
As part of the PGA of America’s commitment to growing the game of golf, each ticketed adult can bring up to four children aged 17 or younger onto the grounds for free. Junior tickets will be available each day of the Championship week, regardless of sellout. In addition, Active Duty, Retirees, Reserve, National Guard and their accompanying guests (limit one) will receive complimentary daily grounds access, regardless of sellout.
For fans interested in PGA corporate hospitality ticket experiences, availability is limited to the Sarazen Suites, Champions Club and the all-new Empire Club — the only all-inclusive individual ticket providing access to the iconic Bethpage Clubhouse and a private viewing suite overlooking the 18th green. Each hospitality option includes premium food service, extended open bar hours and access to climate-controlled entertaining venues. Businesses or individual spectators can visit www.pgachampionship.com to learn more.
A limited number of volunteer positions remain available within the Championship’s PGA Shops, a 60,000 square-foot air-conditioned merchandise venue that will offer branded apparel, gifts and other items while serving as a key gathering spot for visitors. For fans 22 years of age or older interested in volunteering, registration is open at www.pga.com/2019volunteer. Junior Volunteers ages 16-21 can still register to join a waitlist.
