Tuesday and Wednesday are fan friendly days as cameras are brought in, Autographs are asked for and Photos with a Pro or Celebrity are allowed. LPGA pros are willing to sign hats, flags, photos etc. as they more relaxed than when they are trying to win the KNC Championship. This is also a time to follow the favorite Celebrity around the course. Its a chance to be close up one on one with a Pro or celebrity.

Fans can see everyone on the driving range or the putting greens. Its also a chance to be able to see the Dinah Shore Bronze Plaque and statue. Vendors are on hand for food and beverages for people attending. It’s a Fun Day for all.
