Before You Head Out
We are pleased you have chosen to join us for the Stadion Classic at the University of Georgia. The following tips will help you maximize your experience while maintaining an atmosphere for all to enjoy this world-class event.
Find Out When Your Favorite Players Tee Off
Daily pairings will be posted on stadionclassic.uga.edu as well as PGATOUR.com.
Daily Pairing Sheet & Course Map
Pick up a daily pairing sheet for a course map and standings, and to find out when the players tee off. The map will help you locate concessions stands, restrooms, first aid stations, and other on-course services.
Be sure to check the weather to determine proper apparel. Always bring a rain jacket or poncho if there is a chance of precipitation, and wear light colored and cool clothing on sunny days. Also, be sure to wear comfortable shoes, preferably with flatter soles that will make for easier walking on uneven terrain. Stay hydrated as temperatures may reach 90 degrees the first week of May.
Daily ticket sales at the main tournament gate will be cash or credit/debit card only.
Food and Non-Alcoholic Beverages
UGA Food Services will offer delicious food at various locations around the golf course. Please refer to the tournament map for exact locations. Food and non-alcoholic beverage transactions will be cash and credit/debit card only.
Beer and wine will be sold at the tournament. If you plan on purchasing alcohol, you will have to visit one of the tournament's carding stations to get an alcohol wristband for the day. Carding stations will be located just inside the main tournament gate and next to the main concession area by the clubhouse. Alcohol sales will be cash or credit/debit card only.

Golf Course Behavior/Spectator Etiquette
All the tournament contestants are invited guests of the University of Georgia, and should be treated with courtesy and respect. It is appropriate for spectators to applaud or cheer successful strokes by a player, but excessive demonstrations are not appropriate because of the possible negative effects on other competitors. Spectators should never applaud or cheer the misfortune of or misplay by a competitor. Spectators should remain quiet immediately prior to and throughout a player’s swing or putt, withholding any reaction until a swing or putting stroke is completely finished.
- If following a group or player from hole to hole, spectators should remain still until all players in that group have completed their shots, or putts on the green, and then move on to the next shot or hole.
- Stay behind the gallery ropes and cooperate with the course Marshals and all other tournament or PGA/Web.com Tour officials. Kneel or sit down if you are in the front row of a group of spectators.
- If requesting a player’s autograph, on tournament days, you should not ask until after his round is completed.
Posters and autograph items larger than 8" x 12" should not be brought to the tournament. Clipboards are prohibited. On tournament days, you should not ask a pro for his autograph until after his round is completed.
- Tickets/badges must be prominently displayed at all times.
- Wear headgear and sunglasses for protection from the sun, and the use of sunblock is highly recommended.
- Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration.
- Familiarize yourself with the First Aid Stations located on-site.
- Stay behind the gallery ropes and cooperate with the course Marshals.
- Kneel or sit down if you are in the front row.
- Remain still and quiet through each shot.
- Walk carefully—never run.
In the event of an emergency, contact any member of the tournament/volunteer staff or any Law Enforcement personnel in order to expedite medical assistance. Use of cell phones from any location is permitted in the event of an emergency.
