Navigating the course
GETTING TO THE COURSE
Signs will be posted to direct traffic. Patrons should pay attention to signs and the officers directing traffic rather than try to use their vehicles’ or smartphones’ navigation systems.
Officials will close the eastbound ramp from Interstate 20 to Washington Road from 7:30 to 10 a.m. each day to help direct traffic through the proper routes.
Berckmans Road connects to Washington Road at Alexander Drive. Berckmans has a center turn lane, sidewalks, extra lighting and tunnels – two for pedestrians and one for vehicles.
All patrons will enter the course at the North Gate or South Gate.
There will be no pedestrian crossing from the eastern sidewalk allowed on Berckmans Road; all pedestrians must cross at the tunnels, which were open for the first time in 2016, rather than try to navigate their own way through traffic.
Pedestrians on the northern side of Washington Road can cross at Berckmans Road or at Old Berckmans Road crosswalks. For safety purposes, pedestrians should not cross Washington Road anywhere other than approved crosswalks. More than 8,500 free parking spaces are available in lots off Berckmans Road.
WHEN IT’S TIME TO GO
Berckmans Road will be one way heading south from 4 to 9 p.m. each day to speed up and simplify patrons’ exit from the course. During that period, there will also be no left turns from Berckmans onto Washington Road.
