The Honda Classic is exploding with attractive private hospitality offerings. But the general admission spectator also has a multitude of great viewing options to choose from. From the first tee bleacher seats sponsored by SERVPRO to the CitiCard Member Club at No. 10, an elevated terrace at the 12th green that provides views of five holes, a new 360-degree, 3,300 square-foot viewing platform overlooking the 15th hole which also offers views of the 14th green, 12th green, 13th tee and 16th tee to all of the various options at the signature 17th hole, there are a wide variety of spots for spectators to witness plenty of great shots.
SOME OF THE BEST VIEWING SPOTS
HOLE 1TEE, sponsored by SERVPRO
The first tee is a great place to see the entire field begin its round at The Honda Classic all four days with half the field also making the turn there in the first two rounds. There is bleacher seating for several hundred and a long and straight fairway with spot mounding that provides multiple vantage points.
HOLE 3 GREEN
Watch the pros go for it in two at this reachable par 5. Spectators will see lots of birdies and eagles.
HOLE 4 GREEN
Just short of the green, there is a hill where spectators can stand and watch all the action on the fourth, plus the sixth hole.
HOLE 8 GREEN
Spectators can watch the approach shots over the water at this par 4. Plus there are extensive concessions, upgraded restrooms, a smoothie and pretzel stand and a beer trailer with a wide selection of brands.
HOLE 9 GREEN
There is bleacher seating for several hundred fans plus the top deck of the Michelob Ultra Terrace provides a great vantage point where spectators can also watch the action at the 10th tee as well.
HOLE 10 GREEN
The new CitiCard Member Club allows CitiCard members to watch the action from an elevated hospitality location behind the 10th green that includes an outdoor patio and indoor cash bar.
HOLE 12 GREEN
Between the 12th green and 13th Tee, a new elevated Terrace will provide a greater vantage point to watch all the action on those two holes, plus the newly-redesigned 14th hole, the 15th hole and the 16th tee. From a pure golf standpoint, it might be the best vantage point on the course.
A new 360-degree, 3,300-square-foot viewing platform has been added overlooking the 15th hole which also offers views of the 14th green, 12th green, 13th tee and 16th tee. This location will provide a premium hospitality experience for the general admission ticket holder.
HOLE 16 GREEN
There are public bleachers to the left of the green. The Bear Trap winds around the right side of the green and provides viewing for both the 16th and 17th holes.
The Honda Classic’s signature hole provides many great vantage points. Five rows of seating in front of Cobra Puma Village to the left of the tee enclose the tee box and provide a stadium feel. The Vic & Angelos Wine Garden, Club Kettle One and an expanded FPL Patio all provide public seating between the tee and the green of this challenging par 3.
There is extensive and expanded bleacher seating for the general public in front of the elevated private hospitality areas approaching the green on this finishing hole that always plays a major role in crowning the Honda Classic champion.
BEST PLACES TO SEE THE GOLFERS UP CLOSE OR GET AUTOGRAPHS
When the best players in the world are on the golf course, spectators should stay behind the ropes and make sure to stay out of the way as they walk between holes. Players will not sign autographs while on the golf course. But check out these sneaky locations to get as up close and as personal as possible to some of the best players in the world.
True golf fans know that the Practice Area at PGA National is a must-stop at The Honda Classic. You can grab a spot up against the ropes and be real close to the world’s best as they hone their craft…sometimes for hours on end. Sometimes players will stop and sign a few autographs.
Another area where players let their guard down and interact with the fans is outside the Scoring Area at the 18th hole. Players will typically sign autographs after they sign their own scorecards.
PGA National Main Putting Green. There are two of them at The Honda Classic. But when players want extended practice time, they usually make their way to the main putting green behind the hotel.
