2021 RBC Heritage to allow limited spectators

You might get to go to the RBC Heritage this spring. The Heritage Classic Foundation announced Thursday that the 53rd annual RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing will take place April 12-18 with limited spectators on-site and strict health and safety protocols in place. 

“Working with officials from the Town of Hilton Head, the State of South Carolina and the PGA TOUR, the Heritage Classic Foundation has developed a tournament plan that includes a limited number of sponsors and fans in open air and socially-distanced settings,” the Heritage Classic Foundation said in a release. “Health and safety remain the number one priority, and the tournament has implemented a number of new protocols to keep everyone safe during the reimagined event.”

The fan guide to safety policies for the 2021 event are listed at RBCHeritage.com/COVID19.

New COVID-19 safety protocols mean some elements of the tournament have changed. The skyboxes and private hospitality venues that usually surround the golf course will be replaced with open air villages and concession areas. Additional health and safety protocols include the mandatory use of facial coverings, social distancing and other health and safety measures. All permanent and temporary structures will have complete daily sanitization. Safety measures regarding food preparation and distribution will also be in place.

“We are looking forward to conducting the 2021 RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing to support educational and charitable initiatives and to enhance the quality of life and economic vitality in and around the state of South Carolina,” Tournament Director Steve Wilmot said in the release. “The 2021 tournament will look a little different than it normally does, but the experience will still be plaid-tastic!”

With fewer tickets available for distribution, the Heritage Classic Foundation will work first with the tournament’s official partners, then open sales to past ticket buyers. For updates on tickets available to the general public, please continue to visit www.rbcheritage.com or Facebook (RBC Heritage) and Twitter (@RBC_Heritage).
