The 2015 PGA Championship will shift to Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.
The championship is scheduled to start on Monday, August 10 and run through Sunday, August 16.
There’s a new pre-registration ticket process for the 2015 championship, which required fans to complete the free online process prior to August 11 to be eligible to purchase tickets during the public sale. It can be found at www.PGAChampionship.com.
“We anticipate a very strong demand for 2015 PGA Championship tickets and are preparing to welcome thousands of passionate golf fans to stunning Whistling Straits for the most innovative major in professional golf where fans are truly embraced as part of the event,” said PGA Championship Director Jason Mengel.
Ticket options include weeklong tickets, going for $295, and daily tickets, going for $30 (Monday or Tuesday), $40 (Wednesday), $90 (Thursday), and $95 (Friday, Saturday, or Sunday).
Tickets for the Wanamaker club, a sports-bar-themed pavilion located in a new prime position on the course to the right of the 9th fairway, are going for $475 for the week.
There’s also a ticket package called the “Ultimate Foursome” that gives fans four tickets to the Wanamaker Club, and also the right to purchase four weekling tickets for the 2020 Ryder Cup, which will be held at Whistling Straits, bypassing the Ryder Cup random ticket draw.
Complimentary grounds access will also be available on a daily basis for juniors (age 17 or younger, accompanied by a ticketed adult) and select military personnel (Active, Military Retirees, Reservists and Civilians with Department of Defense ID) for the 2015 PGA Championship.
As for those wanting to volunteer, registration opened in May but is still open as more than 3,000 are needed.
“The PGA of America depends on thousands of dedicated and passionate volunteers to help operate the PGA Championship every year,” said Mengel. “These volunteers play a major role in making the event a success, and we couldn’t do it without them. We often hear from our volunteers that their experience is extremely rewarding and memorable.”
Volunteer assignments are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, and positions vary from working on the course as a marshal to being inside in the climate-controlled merchandise area. Committee positions that may be available include Admission Sales and Will Call, Corporate Hospitality Services, Transportation, Merchandise Operations, Marshals/Special Teams and Information Services.
Volunteers, who must be 22 or older, must pay a $204.75 fee to volunteer, receiving in return meal and water vouchers, preferred parking, and a volunteer uniform, in addition to access to the grounds all seven days of the championship.
