As a way to say "thank you" to local golf fans for their support, AT&T Champions Classic officials today announced that practice rounds on Monday and Tuesday, March 9 and 10, and pro-am rounds on Wednesday and Thursday, March 11 and 12, will be free of charge for spectators at Valencia Country Club.

"AT&T is offering these free admission days as a way to say ‘thank you' to the fans for supporting this event as the company closes out its sponsorship of the AT&T Champions Classic," said Mike Bone, tournament marketing director.

"We understand that people have choices to make with their disposable income, and our hope is that they like what they see during the free admission days and come back on the weekend when the tournament action begins," Bone said.
 
Paid admission for the Champions Tour event in the Santa Clarita Valley will begin with the first round of tournament action on Friday, March 13, and continue through the weekend.

Daily admission passes are just $15. In addition, a variety of ticket packages are also available, including a $40 Family Plan (four good any one day passes), a $99 Birdie Package (10 good any one day passes) and a $199 Eagle Package (20 good any one day passes).

Tickets for the event can be purchased online at www.championsclassictickets.com or by phone at 661-254-3303.

In addition to the tournament rounds March 13-15, fans in attendance will the have opportunity to visit a variety of vendors and exhibitors along Vendor Row, including: the City of Santa Clarita, Shell Vacations Club, Golf Tec and others.

Fans also have the opportunity to watch the players warm up along the driving range and can follow their favorite fan-friendly Champions Tour professional throughout the picturesque Valencia Country Club, one of the toughest tests on the Champions Tour schedule.

Dennis Watson returns to defend his 2008 AT&T Champions Classic crown against another stellar field heading to the Santa Clarita Valley this March. The list of players expected to compete includes Bernhard Langer, John Cook and first-time participant Hal Sutton.

Perennial favorite Jay Haas and former AT&T Champions Classic winners Tom Kite, Tom Purtzer and Gil Morgan will also be on hand competing for the $1.6 million in prize money.
