CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Officials from the Wells Fargo Championship announced that they are raising the age that children can receive free ground tickets when accompanied by a ticketed adult to 17.
For the past 17 years, children ages 12 and under were admitted at no cost.
“In an effort to grow the game of golf and better-accommodate the sports fans in this region, our title sponsor Wells Fargo and the operating committee, felt it is time to move the age limit higher,” Wells Fargo Championship Tournament Director Gary Sobba said in a new release.
The event will take place from the April 27-May 3 PGA TOUR event at Quail Hollow Club.
“This is also a spring time family event and we want to encourage families to spend time together at the Wells Fargo Championship,” Sobba said.
According to a news release, as a result of last year’s event the tournament was able to share nearly $1.9 million in donations to Charlotte-area organizations.
In the past 17 years, Champions for Education has assisted with awareness and contributed over $24 million to charitable organizations, the release continued.
Grounds ticket prices start with the $35 Practice Pack, which consist of three individual daily tickets for Monday through Wednesday, a news release said. Also popular is the $175 Weekly Grounds Pass, which represents a $110 savings from practice pack and individual daily purchases.
