PGA Championship Week at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, New Jersey officially begins Monday, July 25, but this weekend the public will have a chance to beat the rush to buy merchandise prior to the tournament.

The Championship Shops at Baltusrol Golf Club, located adjacent to the 17th hole, will open its 39,000 square-foot (130’ x 300’) merchandise shopping experience this Friday through Sunday (July 22-24) from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

No tickets or credentials are required for the public to attend and FREE parking is available inside of Gate 1 at 498 Hillside Avenue in Springfield (make a right off Mountain Avenue at the light and go straight).

The shops are just a short walk from the main spectator entrance at Baltusrol from Hillside Avenue.

Fans not only will be able to choose from 11 merchandise licensees for just headwear and apparel, but they can:

  • Take photos with the PGA Championship’s Wanamaker Trophy and the Ryder Cup Trophy for FREE!
  • Enter to WIN $50 gift cards every hour for use at The Championship Shops.
  • 20% OFF All KID’S Apparel!

“The official structure for these shops was completed during the third week of June, and within a span of 30 days, everything was completed and set last night (July 19),” said Mike Quirk, Senior Director of Merchandising & Licensing at PGA of America.

The shops feature men’s, women’s and children’s apparel from top brands including Ralph Lauren (official outfitter), Adidas, Nike, Under Armour, Cutter & Buck, Greg Norman, 47 Brand, Sunice, New Era, Garb and more, as well as an extensive selection of exclusive accessories, gifts and memorabilia including a pretty cool section by Wall Township, New Jersey-based company Signs by the Sea.

Additionally, the Championship Shops will feature the launch of the 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup team uniforms.

Other cool numbers to marinate:

  • 42 registers for check out
  • 8 65” and 6 75” televisions will all have current Golf Channel and CBS programming with audio throughout the shops, this way you don’t miss one second of the action.
  • 650 merchandise volunteers

  • 20,000 total t-shirts
  • 12,000 total flags
