The game will go on, as planned, March 11-14, 2021. And it will take place as expected at the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. But this year, with the safety and health of the players, sponsors, volunteers and fans the highest priority, THE PLAYERS Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach will be implementing some changes.

Fans will be allowed to attend the tournament, but only to 20% of its maximum expected capacity. All attendees must wear masks, encouraged to practice social distancing, and are urged to visit here for safety protocols in place before going to the event. Tickets are being made available February 1st to previous attendees, then opened up to the public February 16th here. Details for events are still being worked out to make sure that fans have the best and safest experience possible. Here are some highlights:

Military Member or Veteran Discounts

In support of heightened military restrictions limiting large gatherings and adherence to comprehensive safety protocols, this year’s tournament will not include a Military Appreciation ceremony, concert, nor hospitality venue (Patriots Outpost) that traditionally hosts thousands of military and their families. However, complimentary admission will be provided to active duty, retired, reserve and National Guard members and one dependent on Tuesday, March 9th and Wednesday, March 10th. Valid ID and credentials are required. Veterans with valid ID will receive a 50% discount for admission Tuesday, March 9th and Wednesday, March 10th. Military vouchers will be available on or around February 16th. Visit here to access Military dropdown icon for verification.


There will be a PGA TOUR Fan Shop within the Welcome Experience (main entrance) as in years past featuring unique merchandise and commemorative items and apparel. And while there will be fewer hospitality suites than in past years, there will be a wide assortment of food and beverage venues showcasing the great local cuisine of Northeast Florida. All designed to be wide open spaces with social distancing in place.

And there’s no better place to see and be seen than at THE PLAYERS. From the red carpet at the Welcome Experience to selfies at the Island Green 17th hole, THE PLAYERS is an experience you will remember forever.
