5 — Catch 100 of the world’s best golfers competing for the Kraft Nabisco Championship title — the LPGA’s first major of the year.

4 — Be seen in The Legends Club, an upgraded location featuring a climate-controlled environment with covered and uncovered patio, seating areas, restrooms, TVs, and a complete pay-as-you-go menu. Ideal for fans who want to chill (literally) with refreshments and not miss a single putt.  

3 — Watch the winner of the 2012 KNC take her ceremonious plunge into Poppy’s Pond at the 18th green and then slip on the coveted white robe — a tradition since 1988 that has become the “green jacket” of the LPGA.

2 — Get your favorite player’s “John Hancock” at the autograph tent.

1 — Witness history being made with each putt.

Best Hole
According to tournament organizers, the hottest spectator spot is the 18th Green Suite — considered the best seat in the house, with food, beverage, and parking included. Shop the merchandise tent, check out the famous Dinah Shore statue, sample Kraft foods, and peruse vendor and exhibitor’s information.
