If you’re applying/purchasing PGA tickets, then you should have started planning your visit to Bethpage State Park. You definitely need accommodation and transportation in the New York Metropolitan Area. It’s not the first time the metropolis host the championship but it’s the first for the Black course. So, there is no previous year’s experience we can refer for this case. At this point, you need visit guide for PGA 2019 so you won’t get lost.
There are some transportation modes available transport you to/from the Black course. PGA of America collaborates with the local authorities to provide convenient transportation for the event spectators. Let’s see the options:
Long Island Railroad(LIRR) is the basic transportation mode to reach the course. You need to ride it to the Farmingdale train station. There will be complimentary shuttle services which transport you to and from PGA 2019 main entrance. The specific LIRR schedule for PGA 2019 would be announced at April so stay tuned for the updates.
You may consider driving your own vehicle to PGA 2019 as they also provide complimentary public parking lot at the John Beach. Your car wouldn’t go any further as you need to park it there and there will be complimentary shuttle services to transport you to/from Bethpage’s main entrance. However, it should be noted that your car shouldn’t stay overnight in the lot or it would get towed by the authorities. At this point, you need to find accommodation with parking area facility if you drive your own vehicle to PGA 2019.
Even though there is no fixed lot location yet for rideshare services, the possibility has been issued. It would have the same idea, you’ll need to take a ride to the off-site lot and be shuttled to Black course entrance. The shuttle service would be complimentary and no-obligation for PGA ticket holders.
If the main entrance is reachable by walk or bike from your departure point, you can head to the only walk-in gate in Quaker Meeting House Road intersection. However, the area would be strictly restricted during the PGA 2019 events so ensure you bring the tickets and supportive documents to pass.
If you want to make it less-adventurous, you may consider taking PRIMESPORT’s official PGA 2019 travel packages which include transportation and accommodation during championship event. Good Luck.
