Discount Golf Tickets

One of the most disturbing parts of buying tickets to sporting events is the insane cost to you to attend these events. For the larger events, whether it is the Super Bowl in football, or even Wrestle Mania in professional wrestling, tickets prices for these events can make you cringe. The same can be said about getting tickets to professional golfing events. If you want to be on the green of the 18th hole on Sunday of the Masters Championship, you will have to pay a pretty penny. While pro golf tickets can cost you an arm and a leg, there are ways to get discount golf tickets to some popular events.

Scoring Discounted Tickets to Golf Events

Bridgestone Invitational

Held at the Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio, the WGC Bridgestone Invitational is one of the most popular non-Major events on the PGA Tour. The event will be held in 2013 from July 31 through August 4 and if tickets are purchased with the promotional code of “BUNKER13,” not only will you get discounted tickets to the event, the club will donate 75 percent of net proceeds to benefit Mobile Meals Inc. and 25 percent will benefit the local chapter of The First Tee.

U.S. Open Championship

For anyone that wants to catch any of the action on the weekend from the 2013 U.S. Open Championship, you will need to look at websites other than that of the official United States Golf Association. The only tickets available through their website are for Monday, June 10. Tickets for the rest of the week are sold out on their website, allowing those who claimed them all to make monster profits selling them elsewhere. If you want to see all the action on the weekend now, you will need to pay at least $249 on Vivid Seats to get in. At a mark-up of nearly five times, there is no real discount. The only way to get these sites at a discounted rate now is by taking the chance of waiting until the day of the event and search for a scalper in the parking lot dealing seats for whatever they can push them off for.

Join the USGA

The best and most reliable way to get into popular events at a discounted rate would be by joining the USGA. Members of this club get various perks including merchandise and rule books, but will also get the chance to purchase tickets like those for the U.S. Open before they go on sale to non-members. With this perk, you can assure that you will not only get tickets to whatever day of the championship you are looking for, but you will also get them at a discounted rate before scalpers can mark the prices up.
