Posted 11/14/2013 10:47:00 AM

For 45 years, the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing has been South Carolina’s premier spring gathering for golf fans and vacationers alike. And even though the annual celebration of “Plaid Nation” is some five months away, it’s not too soon to make plans to attend the state’s lone PGA Tour event, set for April 14-20 at Hilton Head Island – especially if saving money is an important part of those plans.

Until Dec. 20, the RBC Heritage is offering $20 off on the purchase of each Clubhouse Badge (regularly $190), which provides access to Harbour Town Golf Links’ tournament grounds for all seven days of the event. Also included is admission to the clubhouse and its private bathrooms and the Heritage Pavilion, as well as two on-course hospitality venues at holes No. 15 and 7, with views of the tournament and food and beverages for purchase.

This year, the RBC Heritage also has two new ticket plans for 2014:

* Doc’s BBQ Club 15 – Each ticket booklet ($375) includes access to a private entertainment venue at the 15th green, Thursday-Sunday of tournament week plus one practice round day (Monday-Wednesday), with access to the grounds all seven days. The venue includes air conditioned interior and outdoor seating areas, and a daily buffet provided by Columbia-based Doc’s BBQ and Southern Way Catering. Complimentary draft beer, wine and soft drinks are included, and spirits are available for purchase.

* Clubhouse Ticket Pack – The ticket pack ($250) includes one practice-round ticket and daily tickets for Thursday-Sunday, with access to the tournament and admission to the clubhouse/Heritage Pavilion, plus the hospitality venues at Nos. 7 and 15; designed for businesses entertaining different clients each day.

Other ticket packages include Grounds Badges ($150) and Daily Tickets (until March 31, 2014, $50 each for Thursday and Sunday, $60 each Friday and Saturday; ticket prices increase $20 on April 1). Practice-round tickets are $35 for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (including pro-am events). Juniors ages 15 and under are free when accompanied by a ticketed adult.
