Northern Trust Open tournament officials have announced lower ticket prices for the 2011 event, which will be held February 15-20 at historic Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades.
Daily grounds access for practice rounds (Tuesday, Wednesday) are $20 when purchased in advance or at the gate during tournament week. Daily grounds access for tournament rounds (Thursday-Sunday) are $30 when purchased in advance or $35 at the gate (compared to $50 for the 2010 event).
A weekly grounds badge is $80 when purchased in advance and $100 at the gate (compared to $100 and $125, respectively, for 2010). New this year is a weekender ticket, which allows tournament access for both Saturday and Sunday for $45. The weekender is only available in advance and cannot be purchased at the gate during tournament week.
Also available this year is an offer to senior citizens (55 and older) and college students, who can purchase Thursday-Sunday daily grounds access for $20 with proper ID at the gate during tournament week. In addition, the tournament is continuing its policy of youth 18 and under being admitted free, as are members of the U.S. military, who can obtain tickets through their local MWR office beginning in January.
“Our goal is to create an exciting atmosphere here at Riviera, where the community can come together to watch the best players in the world compete, and at the end of the day increase the amount of money that goes back to local charities,” said Jerry West, Northern Trust Open executive director. “To do that, we need to make sure the Northern Trust Open ticket is an exceptional value for a first-class experience.”
Parking at the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System (VA Hospital) is free, with regular shuttles running to and from Riviera Country Club.
