If it rains on any day of the tournament, play will continue as long as it is deemed safe to do so. All Corporate Hospitality will be open every day, rain or shine. The PGA TOUR Champions and tournament staff will always keep spectators informed at the earliest possible moment of any changes made on this policy based upon situational circumstances.

In the case of inclement weather, a “Weather Warning” notification will be posted on all electronic scoreboards on the course. When this message appears, spectators are advised to take immediate precautions by evacuating bleachers and hospitality tents.
