The safety and security of all visitors to National Bank Open presented by Rogers is our highest priority, and there will be enhanced security measures in place at this year’s tournament. Be sure to arrive early to make time for going through security at the entrance gates.
The tournament reserves the right to limit items which may be brought into the Sobeys Stadium grounds. To access the grounds, you must pass through security screening involving metal detection and visual inspections, which are designed to prevent prohibited items from entering Sobeys Stadium. Any bag, container or package will be checked prior to entering the grounds. All persons entering the grounds will be subject to search. Please leave unnecessary items at home or in your vehicle.
