View from the inside

You’ve seen them around the course at professional golf tournaments. You’ve probably ran into them, stood against them, wished you could avoid them. We’re talking about the ropes separating fans from the action on the course. Thin, green and white rope strung at waist height a few yards off the tees, fairways and greens. During the Hero World Challenge at Albany, Bahamas, duck below the rope line and go inside with the pros for 18 holes.

Each day during competition rounds, guests can walk with the pros on the inside. The Hero World Challenge is known for a field showcasing the top-ranked players in the world in an exclusive setting. With the inside the ropes experience, select your preferred pro and get ready for an up-close view of the world’s best players taking on Albany. Walk from tee to green, on fairways and through player-only areas for an experience unlike any other in golf.

“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience to walk inside the ropes with the world’s best golfers at Albany. You definitely need to come out and experience it.”

The inside the ropes experience at the Hero World Challenge is more than just walking 18 holes with two of golf’s best players. For a golf fan, there’s no experience that can compare. You’ll be able to hear player-caddie conversations over club selection, hear the flush swing of an iron or wood, see the breaks on the greens from angles unavailable outside the ropes and appreciate the intricacies of the game that do not come through the TV screen. Sure, basketball has courtside seats, but no experience is as intimate in sports as walking 18 holes at Albany, Bahamas.

The inside the ropes experience starts with a commemorative photo on the first tee. Throughout the day, you have access to EIGHTEEN, an all-inclusive hospitality venue overlooking the closing hole, for a signature cocktail or bite to eat. You’ll also be equipped with official tournament merchandise to complete your look inside the ropes.
