Difference between a Gallery, Trophy Club, and 1895 Club ticket

A Gallery ticket provides access to the grounds of Shinnecock Hills.

A Trophy Club ticket includes Gallery access as well as the ability to enter the Trophy Club, which is a tented pavilion on the grounds of Shinnecock Hills. It includes access to separate restrooms as well as seating in an air-conditioned pavilion. Food and beverage inside of the Trophy Club will be available for purchase.

An 1895 Club ticket includes Gallery access and gives ticket holders the ability to enter the 1895 Club, which is an all-inclusive tented facility on the grounds of Shinnecock Hills. It includes access to separate restrooms as well as seating in an air-conditioned pavilion. Food and beverage (including alcohol) is included in the ticket price.

Please note: the Trophy Club and 1895 Club are separate tents and require the proper ticket type to enter.

 

Weekly Ticket Package & Weekly Badge
