2021 TOURNAMENT FAQ

Barracuda Championship
How do I purchase tickets to the Barracuda Championship?

Please visit our ticket page for information about purchasing tickets.

Which is the best day to enjoy the Barracuda Championship?

We think that each day of the tournament has something special to offer! Competition begins on Thursday and continues on Friday, so if you have your heart set on seeing a particular golfer, these are the days you will want to be in attendance. There is a cut after play on Friday to include the lowest scoring 65 players and those tied at that score. Those golfers who make the cut will play on Saturday and Sunday of tournament week. Sunday is the exciting finish with a lively Closing Ceremony following the sink of the last putt. Thursday through Sunday of tournament week features world-class professional golf and on course amenities.
