THE PLAYERS is once again proud to continue its policy of providing free or affordable access to the tournament for men and women of the U.S. Armed Services.
THE PLAYERS provides all career military (active duty, Reserve, military retirees and dependents) with complimentary admission to the tournament all week.
All military must bring printed vouchers and photo IDs to the Military Tickets trailers located at any of the tournament gates. At the trailers, vouchers will be exchanged for complimentary tournament tickets for career military and dependents. THE PLAYERS also provides veterans the opportunity to purchase up to two (2) discounted tournament tickets at the trailers. Military can enter the tournament through the following gates: Davis Love III, Nicklaus, and Couples.
Parking is free for everyone Tuesday-Wednesday. Beginning Thursday, everyone (including military) must purchase parking passes in advance of the tournament. Those who carpool with four or more can park for free under THE PLAYERS “Four for Free” policy. All parking information can be found here.
THE PLAYERS is more than a golf tournament and a showcase of elite golf and a world-class facility. THE PLAYERS week is filled with activities that highlight the “good side of sports,” most notably, a commitment to honoring the men and women who serve in the U.S. Military.
