“We have been overwhelmed by the response that we’ve received from the island,” said Tournament Director Sean Sovacool. “We look forward to a week of great golf with spectators for the first time since March. I encourage anyone interested in attending to purchase their tickets while they last.”

“Since going on sale last week, Sunday’s round has nearly sold out, with fewer than 100 general admission tickets remaining. Gates are open to the public Thursday, October 29 to Sunday, November 1, with daily general admission available for $35.

“Tickets will not be sold at the gate; they are available only in advance and can be purchased through the tournament website here. All spectators, regardless of age, must have a ticket to access the grounds of Port Royal Golf Course.

“A VIP upgrade is available for the Longtail Club located on 18 green. Hospitality tickets include food and beverage. Thursday and Friday tickets are sold out, with limited availability remaining for Saturday and Sunday. Contact Sean Sovacool at sean@bermudachampionship.com for details.

“The Bermuda Championship will feature 132 of the world’s top professional golfers competing over four days. Brendon Todd is set to defend his title, scheduled to appear along with recently announced Danny Willett, the 2016 Masters champion, and fan favourite Harold Varner III. Additional field announcements will be made, as players have until Friday, October 23 to commit.

“Spectator protocols will include temperature checks, mandatory wearing of face masks upon entry and around the golf course, social distancing with six feet of separation, and the use of hand sanitiser, with units placed throughout the venue, including entrances, restrooms and concession locations. For the safety of spectators and players, autographs will not be permitted.

    Sorry but I was under the impression that this event was supposed to be an investment by us to bring tourists to Bermuda and not rely solely on locals attending the event and paying to access a golf course we as Bermudians actually own?!

    Maybe I’m confused?

      LOL….nope, you got it.

    • Safe in BDA says:

      Yeah COVID obviously makes travel pretty tough for anyone right now, but guess what- the same potential tourists will be watching the event on TV and seeing how beautiful Bermuda is. People will still be attracted to come here when they can.

    Seriously,

    The world is facing a pandemic and any visitor that travels may have to quarantine for 2 weeks.

    In the meantime, buy a ticket and support the event until there is a sense of normality.

    Besides, the exposure alone is worth the money. People today are still talking about the Grand Slam and the opportunity they had to play either MOC or PR.

    Not everything has to be political.

    • Buy a ticket? says:

      Sorry got kids to feed and land tax and dividend tax to pay in my small business which is killing it!

      Golf is just not an option for me or a lot of Bermudians at this time!

      well said…always complaining about something

  3. Hey says:

    This event will not generate a profit for Bermuda..

    • Mixitup says:

      Nothing right now is generating profit, but this will set Bermuda up, if pulled off without a hitch, as jumping out of the blocks at the right time and showing our ability to manage this pandemic and still host major events. A win win that will pay dividends in the months and years to come.

      • Hey says:

        How many years do you think this pandemic will last To benefit from hosting an event in a pandemic. As I said, this will not make Bermuda a profit. There a reduced number of tickets which have been sold mostly to residents. Am not sure how you see this having such an impact now or in the future. The pandemic will be a thing of history by this time next year.

        We hosted a global event with the ITU triathlon and the Americas cup which were a roaring success. We have proven we can host global events.

      It was never meant to. This is nothing more than a photo opportunity for certain people’s vanity wall.
