New to the API, the White Claw Fan Deck is an exciting fan area located near the 15th green and the 16th tee box.

Tickets for the White Claw Fan Deck start at $115 for Thursday, $130 for Friday/Saturday and $125 for Sunday.

“Fans will love the new White Claw Fan Deck,” said Joie Chitwood, tournament director for the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard. “In addition to offering never-before-seen views from between the 15th green and the 16th tee box, we’ve worked with White Claw to ensure the atmosphere is enjoyable and relaxed—the perfect place to take in all of the action from some of the greatest PGA TOUR pros in the world.”

“White Claw® is all about celebrating pure, uncomplicated fun, and one of many examples of that is being out on the golf course,” said John Shea, Chief Marketing Officer, White Claw. “At the White Claw® Fan Deck, fans have the opportunity to soak in breathtaking views of the legendary course while drinking an ice-cold White Claw® and having a good time watching world-class golf.”

“We always appreciate the elevated experience that Mastercard offers to their cardholders at our event—just part of our longstanding shared commitment to delivering the best,” said Chitwood.
