The championship is open to the public with no cost for admission and will provide a wonderful opportunity for golf enthusiasts throughout the Lehigh Valley and Northeast region to see elite amateurs up close. As there will be few roped off areas around the courses, spectators will have tremendous access for viewing the competition, much more so than when attending most professional events or open championships.

The U.S. Mid-Amateur schedule for stroke-play and match-play competition is as follows:

Saturday, Sept. 6 First Round of Stroke Play Old & Weyhill Courses
Sunday, Sept. 7 Second Round of Stroke Play Old & Weyhill Courses
Monday, Sept. 8 First Round of Match Play Old Course
Tuesday, Sept. 9 Second & Third Rounds of Match Play Old Course
Wednesday, Sept. 10 Quarterfinal & Semifinal Rounds of Match Play Old Course
Thursday, Sept. 11 Championship Match (36 holes) Old Course

Gates will open to spectators each day at 6:30 a.m. for stroke-play rounds. Available spectator amenities will include food, beverages and championship merchandise concessions at locations on the Old and Weyhill Courses. Both breakfast and lunch items will be available, beginning at 7:00 a.m. each day. Shuttle service will be available from parking areas to both courses.
