Ticket pricing is now available for the 100th PGA Championship that will be coming to St. Louis.
The major tournament will be held Aug. 6-12, 2018, at Bellerive Country Club.
The PGA of America has announced that it is experiencing unprecedented demand for this historic Championship, with all 4,000plusvolunteer positions already filled, more than a year in advance.
“Given the number of interest forms we received before volunteer registration opened on June 20, we knew there may be an opportunity to fill all positions quickly. We are pleased to announce that all volunteer positions have been filled at a record pace,” 2018 PGA Championship Director Barry Deach said. “We are seeing a similar trend in our ticket registration process
“We urge local and regional fans to register for tickets soon because national registrations will grow rapidly in the last two weeks of the registration window.”
Tickets will come in three price tiers:
* Daily grounds tickets for Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday for access to the Championship Grounds at Bellerive for the specific day purchased will be $35 each.
* Daily grounds tickets for Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday for access to the Championship Grounds at Bellerive for the specific day purchased will be $100 each.
* Week-long grounds tickets for every day Monday through Sunday for access to the Championship Grounds at Bellerive for all seven days will be $325 each.
The100thPGA Championship will continue the PGA of America’s commitment to offering free Championship access to young fans ages 17 and under, as well as for America’s active and retired service men and women.
Each ticketed adult can bring up to four juniors under the age of 17 onto the Championship Grounds at Bellerive for free each day. No registration for juniors is necessary.
Junior tickets will be available at the admissions and will call office at the Championship’s main entrance and will be available regardless of a sellout.
Deach said interest in the ticket registration for all seven days of the championship is being recorded at a similar rate as was the volunteer registrations.
“I’m not surprised in the least,” Deach said following the media day press conference on Monday. “The people of St. Louis and of the metropolitan area are passionate about their sports and especially professional golf.
“A milestone event like this doesn’t come around very often in sports and that makes every day of the championship next year pretty special.”
The PGA Championship promises a boost to the St. Louis economy, with an estimated 80,000 people from outside the region expected.
“And we estimate 100,000 people from the St. Louis area will also be on the grounds of Bellerive that week,” said Brian Hall, chief marketing director for Explore St. Louis. “The overall economic impact for the region will be about $100 million.”
Tickets will be sold through an online registration program. The earlier fans register the better positioned they will be to access the most popular tickets types when they go on sale following the 2017 PGA Championship in August.
Ticket registration is currently underway and will conclude on August 13.
