Due to the pandemic, the tournament is only allowing a daily attendance of 5,000 spectators. CDC approved safety protocols will be in place, and many of the popular hospitality suites and big name entertainment at the Birds Nest will not be happening.

All attendees will undergo a temperature check at the time of entrance. Attendees will be required to wear a mask at all times. Click here to learn more.
16TH HOLE REIMAGINED
The famous Par 3 16th Hole, undoubtably one of the coveted tickets of the yearly tournament, will still be part of the 2021 tournament. However, it is little smaller with only one-story. The venue is open-air and has a limit of 2,000 people.
Individual tickets to the 16th Hole are available and include admission, food, and drink. They vary between $600-$650 per person (two tickets minimum).
