A message from the tournament

The health and safety of all associated with the Principal Charity Classic is our No. 1 priority. The tournament and the PGA TOUR have an extensive set of COVID-19 health and safety measures planned in conjunction with CDC guidelines to promote a safe environment and quality experience on the golf course. This includes the three W’s: Wear a Mask, Watch Your Distance and Wash Your Hands.

2021 Guide to Fan Safety

Limited Attendance

As of today, the crowd size will be limited to a maximum capacity of 5,000 fans a day. Each hospitality venue will have a certain occupancy limit depending on the size to ensure they do not become overcrowded.

Prior to Arrival

Those who feel ill or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 will not be admitted to the Principal Charity Classic. For more information on symptoms and procedures for those experiencing them, please visit the CDC’s website.


Upon arrival at the event, each guest will be subject to a temperature check and a brief health questionnaire. Once admissible results are received, guests will proceed through standard security checks and bag search in a safe and socially distant manner.

Ticketing Admissions

Guests are required to present a valid ticket to enter tournament grounds via the contactless admissions process. Guests will proceed through the gates once a valid scan has been registered. Please practice social distancing when queuing for entry and wear your mask at all times.

Signage & Guidelines

Guests will notice increased safety signage throughout the golf course, as well as visual and verbal reminders of safe behavior guidelines. Failure to comply with any posted or verbal guidelines may result in expulsion from the tournament grounds.

Rope Line Policy

Consumption of food and beverage is prohibited within 10 feet of the rope line. Masks must be worn at all times within 10 feet of the rope line, even when in possession of food and beverage.


The Principal Charity Classic will have enhanced sanitization protocols in place to ensure all areas are routinely cleaned and sanitized. Sanitization and handwashing are encouraged throughout your time on-site. Guests are permitted to bring their own sanitizer from home.


PGA TOUR Champions players can’t wait to see fans again, but for the health and safety of everyone on the property, we ask that no handshakes, fist bumps, or autographs occur at this time.

Feeling Ill On-site

If you begin to feel ill or have symptoms after arrival at the event, go directly to a First Aid tent. Medical professionals will be ready to assist you in accordance with COVID-19 protocols.

Masks/Face Coverings

Masks are required at the Principal Charity Classic at all times, both indoors and outdoors, with limited exceptions. Exceptions include:

  • Medical Conditions that make wearing a mask difficult
  • Children under the age of 2
  • While actively eating or drinking

Face coverings will be provided to anyone who needs one.

Social Distancing

It is important that everyone on-site practices social distancing where possible in order to help maintain a safe environment. While on-site, pay attention to visual and verbal cues for capacity, directional flow, and viewing area guidelines.
