SPECTATOR GUIDELINES

To help ensure that your experience at the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship is enjoyable, we recommend:

  • If in possession, display your credentials at all times.
  • Spectators are allowed to walk on the fairways, keeping a respectful distance from the players. Thank you for cooperating with the marshals at all times.
  • Drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration.
  • Walk carefully as some of the terrain includes grassy hills, dirt paths and uneven surfaces.
  • Please wear appropriate footwear.
  • Please walk around putting greens, not across.

 

WEATHER WARNING & SPECTATOR EVACUATION

The USGA has meteorology staff on-site monitoring the possibility of inclement weather. In the event of inclement weather, please avoid open areas, hilltops, high places, isolated trees, golf carts and wire fences. If play is suspended, which will be indicated by one prolonged air-horn blast, please close your umbrellas and seek shelter. In the event of suspension of play, the grounds will be cleared immediately and spectators will be directed to return to their cars or the Pacific Dunes clubhouse.
