First Time at The Nelson?


  • Tournament week is fast approaching! With less than 50 days until we celebrate our 50th anniversary, we have some tournament updates to share, as well as what to expect if this is your first time attending the AT&T Byron Nelson.


  • Tournament schedule
    The action will officially start on Wednesday, March 16, with our 50th Anniversary Celebration. Just as fans are eager to see our new home, we’re just as eager to show it off. No need for a ticket this day. Come out and enjoy watching the pro-am round for free!


  • Tickets
    Daily grounds tickets are $45 and are good for any one day of the tournament, Thursday – Sunday. Included with a daily grounds ticket are complimentary shuttles to and from the course and full access to tournament grounds (including the Pavilion).
  • And if you’re bringing kids along, don’t worry about buying a ticket because all youth ages 17 and under will receive free admission, courtesy of Under Armour.
  • More ticket information here.


  • Parking
    Parking and shuttles are both free! Public parking will be located at the State Fair of Texas at the 2100 block of South Haskell, in State Fair LOT 15. The shuttle ride to the course is approximately 12-minutes long. View the parking map here.
  • If you prefer to catch a ride, ride-share services are an option and all drivers will be directed to our ride-share lot (Lot 12) for drop-off/pickup. The shuttle ride from Lot 12 to the course is approximately 5-minutes long.

  • What to wear
    In general, we recommend dressing casual and comfortable. It’s an outdoor sport and you’ll want to walk to different locations throughout the course. So dress appropriately, wear comfortable shoes and use sunscreen!


  • What you are allowed to bring inside the tournament
    Spectators are allowed to bring in items such as umbrellas (without sleeves), binoculars, chairs (without bags) and cell phones. Outside food and beverages are not allowed but you won’t have to travel far to grab a drink. Concession stands will be located throughout the course, with extensive options available at the Pavilion and the Michelob Ultra Triangle. Bags in excess of 6”x6”x6” will not be allowed in.  Click here for the PGA TOUR’s full list of permitted and prohibited items.


  • Golf etiquette
    While enjoying everything the tournament has to offer, the main thing to remember is to be respectful to the players during competition, as well as other spectators. There will be volunteers around the course to help notify spectators the times to remain quiet while the players are putting/teeing off. So don’t be the guy yelling “Get it in the hole!” after each stroke. But feel free to cheer wildly when your favorite golfer scores an eagle on a par 4!
  • Please pay attention to when rope lines around the crosswalks will be opening to allow spectators to follow the action throughout the course, without disrupting play.
  • As per PGA TOUR guidelines, cell phones must be on silent.


  • Tee times
  • Thursday and Friday, starting times will be 7 – 9 am and 12 – 2 pm, off holes 1 and 10.  Pairings will be released the weekend before the tournament.  After Friday’s round, the field will be “cut” to the lowest 70 players and ties, and pairings and starting times will be based on each player’s current standing, with the leaders teeing off last.
  • Play should end at approximately 7:30 pm Wednesday – Friday, and approximately 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
  • Please continue to check our website for updates on expected tee times and pairings as we approach tournament week.


  • Entertainment / Spectator Experience
  • From competitive golf play to the fan-favorite Pavilion, the spectator experience will be filled with entertainment throughout the tournament.
  • Trinity Forest Golf Club’s links style design provides plenty of different viewing options for spectators. The course is very wide open. The club’s design is also very easy and quick to maneuver around during play.
  • Hang out at the Pavilion where you can grab a drink, meet up with friends, listen to music and watch the action on the big screen. Kids Zone is a great place to let the little ones roam free for a bit and enjoy plenty of games and activities in the air-conditioned space.
  • Check out the full course layout here.


  • Tournament proceeds
    The AT&T Byron Nelson exists to raise funds for Momentous Institute, a non-profit organization that works to build and repair social emotional health in kids and families.
