With PDGA Pro Worlds taking place in part on a U.S. military base this year, the sport’s governing body has announced some added guidelines and procedures for players and spectators alike.
Players who register by tomorrow, Friday, May 19, will be granted a pre-vetted entry pass to the tournament’s Fort Gordon, Georgia, venue. Spectators and those who register after tomorrow will have to go through the base’s standard entry procedure, which will include a federal background check.
Organizers are advising those in attendance to arrive at Fort Gordon up to one hour early to allot for enhanced entry screening. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult, and players and fans from a handful of states will be required to produce two forms of identification to gain access to the facility’s grounds.
