Do kids need a ticket?

Thanks to our regional supporter MUSC, all kids 18 and under receive complimentary admission to the 74th U.S. Women’s Open when accompanied by a ticketed adult. Upon arrival at the venue, kids will be given a free junior ticket that provides access to the grounds as well as our junior tent and activities. 

What is there for kids to do at the U.S. Women’s Open?

In addition to receiving complimentary admission, juniors at the U.S. Women’s Open are treated to a variety of free activities in addition to watching great golf. New in 2019, the U.S. Women’s Open will have a junior-only “selfie station” located close to 18 green, where kids under the age of 18 can stop by and get photos with players. 

In addition, juniors are encouraged to visit the junior tent to engage in a number of activities including putting games, a play area and more. This will be a great space to let your kids let loose a little bit, play and learn more about golf! 

Kids can also pick up our scorecard that offers interesting and fun things for them to do throughout the championship grounds. Return a completed one and receive a prize!
