Individual flags will also be on display at the Field of Flags, located inside the course, creating a panorama of red, white and blue. Attendees are invited to experience and enjoy the Field of Flags display.
On Sunday, May 27, members of the North Berrien Military Rites Team will present the country’s colors, play TAPS and fire a 21 Gun Salute at approximately 7:30 a.m. ET. In addition, members of the Whirlpool Veterans Association will serve as Hole 17 volunteer marshals and receive limited-edition KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship military uniforms provided by PGA REACH.
All Active Duty, Military Retirees, Active Reserve, National Guard, Department of Defense Civilians and their accompanying spouses, will be admitted free of charge to the Championship as part of the PGA of America’s commitment to various military initiatives and remembering the men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces.
