Arrive Early & Purchase Parking Passes in Advance
Make plans to get to the course early! A1A is the main route to the tournament with traffic backing up during peak times of the tournament. The earlier you arrive, the better as traffic is at its peak between noon and 2 p.m. daily.
If you are staying inland, take advantage of the CR-210/Nocatee Parkway route rather than A1A. You’ll avoid delays and have a scenic view too.
If you’re driving to the Championship, it’s important to note that parking passes are not included in any ticket purchases, and a separate pass is required for each day of the tournament. These digital parking passes must be purchased in advance online and are $15 (plus taxes and fees) per day for Tuesday and Wednesday, $40 (plus taxes and fees) per day for Thursday through Sunday.
TIP: Consider utilizing rideshare to avoid the hassle of driving and parking altogether! Uber, Lyft and other rideshare services are available throughout the region, with pickup and drop off available nearby the 15th hole at the Couples entry off of ATP Boulevard.
Stay Hydrated, Eat Well & Avoid Sunburns
With temperatures in the 80s during the day, the two most important things to keep in mind — stay hydrated and apply sunscreen. Often. Take advantage of shaded areas and hydrate throughout the day — on water, not just alcohol.
You'll have no shortage of dining and drink options at the tournament. For great eats, check out Trucks on 10, featuring a taste of Northeast Florida’s local food truck scene. And don’t miss the popular Tacos on 12 with great tacos and drinks from Jacksonville Beach’s own TacoLu.
What to Wear
Taking high temperatures into account, preppy and comfortable are the norm for Northeast Florida’s premier golf tournament. Ladies, don your favorite sundress, but leave the heels at home (you’ll be walking in grass all day!) and men, avoid flip flops. Go for comfort and you’ll fit right in with the crowd. If you packed poorly or just want to wear the latest golf styles while at the Championship, take a trip to the PGA TOUR Superstore in nearby Jacksonville, where you can stock up on comfortable golf attire (and get in a few practice putts while you’re there!).
