Inclement Weather

WEATHER WARNING AND SUSPENSION OF PLAY: If inclement weather is approaching,
a “Weather Warning” notification will be posted on all electronic scoreboards on the course.
When this message appears, spectators are advised to take immediate precaution by evacuating
bleachers and hospitality tents. In the event of a “Severe Weather” warning and suspension of play,
please proceed to the bus loading area to be returned to your car for safety. A suspension of play is
preceded by an air horn signal. Suspension of play is a stoppage of play, not necessarily a cancellation
of play for the day. Notification of continuation of play will be given in each parking lot.

In the event of a weather warning, please avoid:

  • Hilltops
  • High places
  • Isolated trees

If play is suspended, please close your umbrella and seek shelter immediately.

If it rains on any day of the tournament, play will continue as long as it is deemed safe to do so.
All Corporate Hospitality will be open every day, rain or shine. The PGA TOUR Champions and
tournament staff will always keep spectators informed at the earliest possible moment of any
