Charter a Private Plane to the 2017 Major Golf Championships
Many golf tournaments take place throughout the year, but there are only four prestigious enough to turn a golfer into a legend. These are, of course, the Masters, the U.S. Open, the Open Championship and the PGA Championship. Will 2017 welcome four brand new champions, as did 2016? Or will veterans take the prize? You’ll have to fly to the course and see for yourself.
The Masters Tournament
4-10 April 2017
Augusta National Golf Club
Augusta, Georgia, USA
Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia is the most storied course in the entire sport. Designed by the legendary Bobby Jones as his ideal course in the 1930s, playing the course – particularly the Masters – is the pinnacle for golfers worldwide.
For the best way to get to Augusta, charter a private jet to Augusta Regional Airport, just minutes from the course. Daily Tournament tickets cost $100 each and are awarded by a lottery. The application deadline for tickets for the 2017 Masters Tournament is May 31, 2016. All applicants will be notified in June by email when the random selection process is completed.

U.S. Open Championship
12-18 June 2017
Erin Hills Golf Course
Hartford, Wisconsin, USA
The 2017 U.S. Open Championship is the first to take place at the beautiful Erin Hills Golf Course in Wisconsin. The setup for the tournament is still a work in progress, but there’s a chance this will be the longest course in the history of the U.S. Open. This means fans will have the chance to see some impressive long drives.
Erin Hills is located 35 miles northwest of Milwaukee. The best way to get to the course is to charter a private jet to Hartford Municipal Airport or Waukesha County Airport. Tickets for the tournament are available at this link. The most exclusive ticket to get is the 1985 Club package at $250 per day. The package includes food and beverages as well as access to a tented, air-conditioned pavilion with seating.
16-23 July 2017
Royal Birkdale Golf Club
This year, the Open Championship – sometimes referred to as the British Championship – returns to Royal Birkdale for the first Open on English soil after two years in Scotland. One of Britain’s finest courses, Royal Birkdale has produced a number of excellent champions over the years, including golf greats Tom Watson, Johnny Miller and Arnold Palmer.
To get as close to Royal Birkdale as possible, charter a jet to Liverpool John Lennon Airport. The most exclusive tickets available for individual purchase are the Greenside Club tickets, which include reserved 18th Grandstand Seating and access to the Greenside Club Marquee. Daily prices start from £205. For more information, visit this link.
