Can I follow players during their practice rounds?

Yes. On Wednesday and Thursday, February 26-27, you will be able to follow the players during the Jose Cuervo Pro-Am.  There is no admission fee on Pro-Am days and parking is limited on-site at Omni Tucson National Resort.  No concessions available.

Where is Public Parking located?

General Public Parking is available Friday-Sunday, February 28-March 1, and is located at Ina Road and Thornydale Road (south of Ina and west of Thornydale) on West Aerie Drive behind Target. General Public Parking is $5 per vehicle and includes complimentary round-trip shuttle service to the main gate of Omni Tucson National Resort.

 

Can I buy tickets at the gate?

If available, general admission and Conquistador Club tickets can be purchased at the gate with cash or credit card.

All sales are final, no exchanges or refunds.  The Cologuard Classic is not responsible for lost or stolen tickets.  The resale of tickets is prohibited on the course, in the parking lots or on surrounding roads.  Violators will have tickets confiscated.  Tickets are transferable, but each individual ticket may be used only on the specific day. 

Can I bring children to the tournament?

Children 17 years old and younger are admitted free to the tournament when accompanied by a ticket-holding adult.

To ensure that everyone has the best tournament experience, please attend to your child and walk away from play if your child gets fussy as to not disturb the golfers and other spectators. We encourage parents with young children to bring umbrella strollers since they are easier to maneuver around the course. Diaper bags (including bottles, juice, and snacks) are permitted but will be checked at security points for prohibited items. See a list of prohibited items here.

 

Can I bring a folding chair in a bag to the tournament?

The folding chairs that come in bag sleeves ARE permitted, however the bags they come in are NOT. Please leave the bag sleeve at home or in your car before boarding the shuttles.

 

What do I wear?

To know how to best dress for the Cologuard Classic, check the weather forecast in advance. Always bring a rain jacket or poncho, just in case, and wear light-colored and cool clothing on hot and mostly sunny days. Also, be sure to wear comfortable shoes, preferably with flat soles, in order to avoid injury that may result due to uneven terrain. Many spectators do wear golf shoes. Sunny or cloudy, don’t forget your sunscreen!

 

What is the cell phone policy?

Please SILENCE your mobile phone. Phone calls are only permitted in designated areas.

 

What is the photo policy?

Photography is permitted during practice rounds and on Pro-Am days (Monday-Thursday). No photographs are permitted after Thursday, February 27. Please also note that video recording is NOT permitted at any time.

 

When are the best times to get autographs?

Playing in the Jose Cuervo Pro-Am is a sure way to get autographs, great photos, and more.

Otherwise, all day on Monday and Tuesday (practice rounds) and after the competitive rounds, you may hang out at the driving range and near the practice putting green. Players are much more likely to stop and sign in these areas as opposed to when they're on the course. During the practice and Pro-Am rounds, follow the same group for several holes. Often, a player will make a point to thank you for following along all day. Just be respectful, creative, and bring a Sharpie.

 

Will I be able to watch other sports such as College Basketball?

The private Conquistador Club is the perfect place to watch college basketball, catch some golf, and relax with friends and family. Televisions will also be located in other public areas.

 

I am disabled. Will I have access to and the ability to move about the tournament?

Dedicated wheelchair-accessible buses will shuttle disabled persons and their guests to the tournament from designated parking areas. Disabled parking is offered at Pima Community College Northwest Campus. The vehicles parked in disabled parking must have proper Arizona-issued disabled parking credentials. On the course, you will find reserved seating for people with disabilities located on various holes. For specifics, check the spectator guide upon arrival at the tournament. Pedestrian paths (cart paths) throughout the course can accommodate wheelchairs.

 

What is the severe weather policy for the tournament?

Pertinent weather information will be provided in the Daily Pairings Guide. In the event of thunderstorms, lightning, or other severe weather, Weather Warning information will be displayed on the electronic scoreboards around the golf course. When these warnings appear, spectators should take precautions and seek shelter, even before play is suspended. If the siren sounds suspending play, seek shelter immediately. The electronic scoreboards will keep spectators advised of the length of delay in play.

 

What is proper spectator etiquette?

  • Watch a golf game with quiet intent. The game requires a lot of concentration on the part of the athletes, and they deserve a solemn atmosphere while hitting.
  • Follow proper etiquette by using only the designated crossing points to move across fairways. Never move across the fairways during play, and always check to make sure the players have advanced before crossing.
    • Stand behind those sitting along fairway ropes. It is not proper etiquette to stand in front of anyone sitting when observing a golf game.
      • Walk briskly only when necessary when observing a golf game. Typically though, you can slowly walk to follow your favorite golfer in plenty of time to see each shot clearly.

        All portable chairs must be removed from the course each night.
