Military, First Responders Get In Free at AT&T Championship

The Champions Tour's AT&T Championship is coming up quickly in San Antonio (Oak Hills Country Club), and the event organizers want to get the word out to area active-duty military and first-responders: Come on out, because you get in free.

Tournament week is Oct. 15-21. Tournament director Colby Callaway said, "We are very honored to salute these brave people who have done so much for us in so many ways. While it's certainly not enough, it's hopefully a way of saying thanks."

Here's a rundown of how it works:

  • All active duty military and military personnel carrying government issued ID, along with police, EMS , and fire department personnel are being offered complimentary tickets to every round of the late season Champions Tour golf tournament.

  • 10,000 tickets were distributed to Military Instillations throughout Texas including the multi-base South Texas area. They can be picked up at services or MWR offices. Additional event info is available here as well.

  • A VIP tent is available for all Military Personnel. It will be open Friday – Sunday. Lunch and beverages are available at no charge between 11:30am – 1:30pm each day. The tent is located just inside the front entrance of the tournament. All military must have a valid Military ID to enter this venue.

  • If Military Personnel are not already carrying a ticket, an ID must be presented to the tournament admissions gate for a complimentary ticket to be issued.

  • Tickets for retired military, police and fire department personal and senior citizens, 62 and older are complimentary as well. Children 17 and under also offered free admission during the tournament. College students with a college ID will receive half price tickets.
