On Thursday it was announced that a limited number of fans will be able to attend the 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard, March 4-7, at Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill Club & Lodge.
“Although the 2021 event will look different due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are committed to providing a world-class experience in a safe environment for all involved,” said Joie Chitwood, Vice President of Corporate Development for the Arnold Palmer Group and Tournament Director for the Arnold Palmer Invitational via a press release.
Attendance will be limited to just 25 percent capacity and multi-day tickets will not be sold. Thursday tickets will cost $65, with Friday’s at $75 and $80 for Saturday and Sunday.
More details for fans who plan to attend, from the release:
