Thrills Both on the Course and Outside the Ropes

April 10, 2024

Tournament features events and activities for fans of all ages throughout the weekend

With the opening round of The Chevron Championship  just two weeks from today, it’s time for golfers, families and sports fans throughout Texas to secure their tickets and get ready to watch 132 of the world’s best female golfers compete in the LPGA Tour’s first major of the year. Adult tickets start at just $25 and juniors aged 17 and under are complimentary with an adult ticket.

The Chevron Championship promises to deliver thrills and memories on the course, but fans of all ages will have the opportunity to create lasting memories outside the ropes thanks to a wide range of activities and experiences.

“The interactive experiences that wrap around The Chevron Championship underscore the mission that both the LPGA and Chevron share as organizations – not only to elevate women and create access and opportunity on the course, but also create lasting experiences off the course,” said Marissa Badenhorst, Chevron’s Vice President of Health, Safety and Environment. “Over the last two years, Chevron has worked with the LPGA Foundation to donate more than $5 million to non-profit organizations to put back into their communities, providing women, girls and people of diverse backgrounds both around the world and in our Houston community with more opportunities both on and off the course.”

Signatures, Selfies, Scavenger Hunts

One of the highlights for any young (or young-at-heart) fan is to get an autograph from or picture with their favorite players, and The Chevron Championship has an area specifically geared to create that opportunity. Behind the 18th green, fans can visit Autograph Alley to meet their favorite golfers and hopefully walk away with that selfie or signature they will remember for years to come.

For those looking for something more active, the LPGA Fan Quest presented by Accenturegives fans a chance to learn more about the LPGA Tour, its players and The Chevron Championship through fun challenges, a conversational agent, and an augmented reality scavenger hunt. As fans complete challenges, they will earn rewards that can be redeemed in the Chevron Inspiration Dome during the Championship.

Swing and Shop for a Good Cause

Throughout the weekend, spectators can grab a pitching wedge and try to one-up the pros by landing a chip shot on the Texas-shaped floating green in the middle of the lake on the 18th green at the Chip for Charity. Spectators can head to the Chevron Inspiration Dome deck by chipping to the signature floating green after play concludes. Proceeds from this activity will go to a featured charity each day.

You can’t visit one of the crown jewels of the golf world and not take home a keepsake. Spectators at The Chevron Championship can grab that memento, shirt or cap and support a good cause through a pair of special merchandise lines in the fan store. The Dream Big Collection showcases Chevron and the LPGA Foundation’s shared commitment to support women’s and girls’ golf and change the face of the game through scholarship programs, career days, playing opportunities and more. The Trophy Collection was created to carry-forward Dinah Shore’s legacy and promote awareness of the Chevron Dinah Shore Scholarships funded annually through the LPGA Foundation.

STEM: Shoe Design and Swing Zone

Marrying the culture of technology innovation that positions Chevron as a global leader in its field with the science of sports, the Chevron STEM Zone is a hands-on, interactive mobile space for students to learn how Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math concepts are connected to everyday life. Kids, whose tickets are free with an adult ticket, can also experiment with fabrication and prototyping tools at the Chevron | Baker Ripley Fab Lab.

Taking the integration of STEM concepts (literally) a step further, spectators can define their personal style while utilizing technology and engineering concepts to design their own Nike or Converse shoes at the Anatomy of Shoe Design presented by Wood. To celebrate 53 years of tournament history, 53 lucky spectators will win their custom shoes each day thanks to Wood.

Spectators who want to test themselves on the course can do so virtually in the Swing Zone presented by Chevron and the Cameron Champ Foundation. A pair of simulators with lounge seating will be featured front and center at the spectator village entrance with all Trackman courses and games, plus an exclusive opportunity to play the simulated Nicklaus Course at The Club at Carlton Woods.

Each day during the tournament, girls can learn more about the science of the sport at the Girls Golf STEM Academy presented by Kiewit. Held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily behind the ninth green, the Academy is designed around STEM activities related to golf, featuring STEM crafts and a putting green learning experience.

Every homeowner dreams of having a lawn that looks like a golf course. Spectators can learn how at the First Green Golf Course Agronomy presented by TETRA Technologies. Led by the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA), golf course superintendents play the role of teacher on the golf course, complementing classroom curriculums with a hands-on learning lab.
