Facilities for the physically impaired are provided. For the safety of all concerned, it is suggested that those using wheelchairs or similar transport use the hard surfaced roads and flat observation areas as much as possible. The grass is often damp and becomes very slippery on sloped areas. As a reminder, those accompanying a physically impaired individual must also have proper credentials.
Cell phones, beepers and other electronic devices are strictly prohibited on the grounds at all times. Cameras are strictly prohibited on Tournament days. Violation of these policies will subject the ticket holder to removal from the grounds and the ticket purchaser to the permanent loss of credentials.
*Personal bags, belt bags, purses no larger than 10"W x 10"H x 12"D are allowed.
**Cameras are allowed for personal use only on Practice Round days—Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
For your personal safety, we ask that you exercise due care at all times. Also, please be reminded that under wet conditions the grounds may become slippery; take appropriate precautions.
Please observe all scoreboards/message boards for the WEATHER WARNING sign shown at right. This sign will appear in advance of inclement weather as information becomes available.

Seek shelter immediately upon hearing the alert. During periods of inclement weather, you should avoid the following:
Appropriate clothing and shoes should be worn at all times.
For everyone’s safety and protection, there will be a NO AUTOGRAPH POLICY enforced on the golf course for the practice and Tournament days. Autograph seeking is only allowed around the Practice Range and on the Par 3 course during the Par 3 Contest. It is expected that all parties (patrons, press, players, etc.) will comply.
Children of all ages must have a ticket to enter the grounds. On Tournament days only, a child between 8 and 16 years of age, accompanied by the patron of record (the person whose name is on the Patron List) may obtain a complementary ticket for that day. As a reminder this is limited to one child per day for the patron of record only.
No animals or pets are allowed onto the grounds except animals necessary and specially trained to assist or guide the physically impaired.
