The Bob Hope Club is the Humana Challenge’s most premium membership, offering the ultimate combination of golf and luxury with climate-controlled indoor seating with flat-screen televisions and tiered, outdoor seating overlooking the 18th green of the Arnold Palmer Private Course at PGA WEST – the tournament’s finishing hole. Dining, catered by popular desert favorite Wally’s Desert Turtle, includes breakfast and lunch buffets, afternoon snacks and premium bar service. Bob Hope Club membership also includes a valet parking pass at PGA WEST, tournament programs and daily pairings guides.

Club 17 is the exclusive, hospitality venue which stretches along the signature par-3 17th hole on the Arnold Palmer Private Course and exudes a sports-themed, lively, energetic atmosphere. Club 17 is decked out with covered and open-air seating overlooking the 17th green, flat-screen TVs to watch the Humana Challenge and other sports, an ample selection of food and beverages for purchase – as well as access to all three tournament courses during tournament week and preferred parking Thursday-Sunday.

Stated discounts also apply to any additional follow-up purchases of the same group ticket packages. These offers cannot be combined with any other offers or discounts on Humana Challenge tickets.

Among the golfers who have made early commitments to play in the 2015 Humana Challenge are World Golf Hall of Famer and 2002 and 2004 Humana Challenge champion Phil Mickelson, major champions Zach Johnson, Keegan Bradley and Jason Dufner, reigning FedExCup champion Billy Horschel, 2012 FedExCup champ Brandt Snedeker, 2014 European Ryder Cup golfer Ian Poulter, former World No. 1 Luke Donald, Italy’s Francesco Molinari and Spain’s Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano.
