It is vitally important to us to protect the health and wellbeing of all players, staff, volunteers and spectators attending PGA European Tour (the “European Tour”) events and, as such, in line with the Government’s latest guidance, entry to all PGA European Tour events will be subject to strict acceptance of and adherence to this COVID-19 spectator code of conduct (the “Code of Conduct”). By purchasing a ticket you have agreed to adhere to this Code of Conduct as well as ensuring that all members of your group are aware of and adhere to this Code of Conduct. Failure to comply with this Code of Conduct may result in you being denied entry or removed from the relevant event. The European Tour reserves the right to require all attendees to provide full contact details for test and trace purposes prior to distribution of tickets. The European Tour further reserves the right to require spectators and guests to complete a personal health questionnaire prior to attending the relevant event. Any data submitted for these purposes shall be held in accordance with all applicable data protection legislation and shall be removed after 21 days.
You must not travel to or attend a European Tour event:
• if you or anyone in your household (including support bubbles): has or develops any COVID-19 symptoms; and/or are/is required to self-isolate whether by way of receiving a positive COVID-19 test, due to contact tracing, due to an enforced period of quarantine post-international travel or otherwise; and/or lives in an area where there is a local lockdown in place at the time of the relevant event;
• if you are subject to other restrictions which mean you cannot travel to or from or attend the event;
• unless you have a pre-booked ticket or hospitality package for the relevant event (no ticket sales on the day will be permitted). Please check your travel arrangements are in place to travel to and from the event, referring to the latest guidance from public transport providers. We encourage you to use personal transport, walk or cycle to the event, where possible.
Please comply with any entry checks which may be required by the European Tour upon entry (for example, Lateral Flow test within 24 hours prior to arrival).
Please follow all signage and the instructions of European Tour staff, officials or any emergency service personnel. You must, at all times whilst attending the relevant European Tour event, observe 2 metre social distancing protocols, whether inside or outside, including avoiding face-to-face contact with other spectators and avoiding hugs, high fives and any contact with people not in your household bubble.
Please also avoid shouting, singing or celebrating all of which may increase risk of transmission. Please ensure you maintain good hand hygiene at all times, use the hand sanitiser dispensers provided around the venue and avoid touching your face or any unnecessary surfaces.
Face coverings are mandatory at all times whilst inside except when you are eating or drinking. If you are exempt from wearing a face covering, please download the appropriate form and have this pass with you at all times; hidden-disability lanyards are available from the ticket office.
Please inform relevant European Tour staff of your exemption upon arrival.
Do not stand in circulation routes and make sure all corridors and doorways are clear to walk and do not enter any area if there is insufficient space to socially distance. When it is time to leave the event, please avoid busy exit times, maintain social distancing and take care. We hope you enjoy your day and thank you for observing this Code of Conduct.
