AmFam Championship returning to Madison in June

The American Family Insurance Championship is returning to Madison’s University Ridge this June with planned protocols for attendees.

PGA TOUR Champions and the American Family Insurance Championship announced their plan for up to 5,000 attendees per day during the scheduled June 11-13 tournament this summer.

Protocols, per an official release, will include:

  • “Up to 5,000 attendees on the grounds during tournament competition (June 11-13) including players, caddies, spectators, tournament staff and volunteers.
  • Face coverings will be required for all spectators, staff and volunteers unless actively eating or drinking. Eating and drinking will not be allowed within 10 feet of the spectator rope line.
  • Concessions services, with limited menu options, will be available in selected locations on the golf course.
  • Public bleacher seating will not be available. Fans are encouraged to bring chairs and sit in ways that help ensure physical distancing throughout all 18 holes.
  • Sanitation stations will be located throughout the grounds, as will “safety ambassadors” to encourage attendee compliance with COVID-safety protocols.
  • The fan-favorite celebrity foursome, which has helped attract Saturday crowds of up to 25,000, will not be held this year but will return in 2022.”

Wisconsin native Steve Stricker helped start the annual event back in 2016.
