KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Health & Safety
Following the PGA TOUR’s announcement of the cancellation of all tournaments through April 5, 2020, the Savannah Golf Championship will no longer be contested the week of March 30 – April 5. At this point it is premature to know if there will be an opportunity to reschedule the event for another week in 2020, but please know we are working diligently with TOUR leadership to discuss all possibilities.
This is obviously a very fluid situation that requires constant review, communication and transparency, and we are dedicated to all three aspects. Together with The Landings Club and our tournament partners, the PGA TOUR will continue to monitor all directives issued by State and Federal governments, as well as information provided by the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, local government health agencies and Savannah’s leading medical providers in the coming weeks.
Parking for the Savannah Golf Championship is $5 and located at Skidaway Institute of Oceanography – University of Georgia.
The $5 fee is donated directly to Bethesda Academy. A complimentary shuttle will pick you up from the lot and drop you off at the Tournament Entrance. When you leave, the same shuttles will take you back to the parking lot. Easy access in and out! If you are coming to the tournament in an Uber or Lyft, you will be able to come onto the property and your ride can you drop you at the Tournament Entrance.
Address: 10 Ocean Science Circle, Savannah, GA 31411
Directions: Once you cross over the Diamond Causeway Bridge, please continue straight through both traffic lights. You’ll want to be in the left hand lane as you approach the four-way stop. Make a left at the four-way stop and that road will take you to the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography – University of Georgia. Volunteers will help you get parked and a complimentary shuttle will pick you up and bring you to the Main Entrance of the tournament.
CHECK THE WEATHER
Check the weather forecast before you visit the Savannah Golf Championship and dress appropriately. Expect cool mornings and sunny afternoons, so dressing in layers is the best idea.
MUST HAVE ITEMS
Sunscreen, Bug Spray, Hat, Comfortable Shoes and Binoculars.
The Savannah Golf Championship is implementing several environmentally friendly initiatives to help reach the tournament’s recycling and sustainability goals. The green initiatives supporting the Savannah Golf Championship’s efforts to be environmentally responsible and generate less waste include:
The Green Team
An all new volunteer committee, The Green Team is focused on ensuring our fans know how they can help us recycle. Fans will see improved signage and a greater effort, thanks to The Green Team around collection areas to ensure fans are utilizing the proper bins. Our focus will be on aluminum cans and all cans are donated to the Boy Scouts Troop 57 – Skidaway Island.
The Savannah Golf Championship has committed to removing plastic from our primary food and beverage venues during our tournament. Fans can expect to see a plastic free space in our Private Skyboxes, The Landings Company Eagle’s Nest, Schooner Cove Suites presented by Publix, and in all on course concessions. In addition to removing plastic from our hospitality venues, our tournament has also eliminated the use of plastic inside the Clubhouse in Player/Family Dining.
Thanks to Coca-Cola Bottling Company United Savannah River Division – all Coca-Cola products offered on the course will be in aluminum cans.
HAVE A PLAN
There are essentially two ways to watch a golf tournament. “Parade Style” is where you pick a spot and watch the field pass by or “Cross-Country Style” is where you follow a particular player or group around the course.
Arrive early to reserve a spot, especially if you plan on watching the tournament “Parade Style.” On Thursday and Friday, groups are simultaneously started on the first and tenth holes. Most people watch the action on the back nine holes which may give you the opportunity to get a better view of the players on the front nine.
SPECTATOR GUIDE AND DAILY PAIRINGS SHEET
Pick up a Spectator Guide for a quick reference Course Map and grab a Pairings Sheet to find out when the players tee off and the order of the groups. Spectator Guides and Pairing Sheets are available at the Main Entrance and at select other locations on the Course. The pros typically play in threesomes on Thursday and Friday and twosomes on the weekends. Check the scoreboards to find out who the leaders are, and where they are on course.
Players are more receptive to requests for autographs after they have completed their round, so please do not interrupt them before or during their round. The Kids Autograph Zone presented by Morris & Templeton Insurance is located between #9 Green and #18 Green, right next to the Player Scoring Trailer. Purchase your golf ball, benefiting SAFE Shelter, and grab some autographs!
