HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - The Heritage Classic Foundation will limit the number of fans who will be allowed on-site for the 53rd annual RBC Heritage.
The event, presented by Boeing, will take place April 12-18. In addition to limited spectators, there will be strict health and safety protocols in place, organizers announced Thursday.
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.

The Heritage Classic Foundation developed a tournament plan with officials from Hilton Head, the state and the PGA Tour.
“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,” a release states.
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. Given the limited number of spectators that will be able to attend the event, the Heritage Classic Foundation has updated tournament ticket types and pricing.
