The PGA of America and Kohler Co. announced today that the weeklong ground tickets packages for the 2015 PGA Championship have sold out.

The tournament will be held at Whistling Straits golf course in Sheboygan County. The weeklong grounds tickets sold out in the first month of sales during the second-highest one month total ticket sales in PGA Championship history.

The championship week runs from August 10 to 16, 2015, at the company’s Whistling Straits course, along Lake Michigan north of Sheboygan. It is expected to draw up to 250,000 spectators to the area and result in a significant economic impact on the region, including Milwaukee.

Individual daily grounds tickets are still available, and Wanamaker Club and Ultimate Foursome packages are also available. The Ultimate Foursome package includes the right to purchase 2020 Ryder Cup tickets. That event will also be held at Whistling Straits.

More than 49,000 fans pre-registered to buy tickets when the tournament opened sales in mid-August.

“We’ve been thrilled to see so many fans purchase 2015 PGA Championship tickets during our first month of sales; the enthusiasm has been incredible and the sell-out of Season Grounds Tickets speaks for itself,” said Jason Mengel, tournament director. “With this being the week of the 2014 Ryder Cup, we also expect the remaining ‘Ultimate Foursome’ packages to go very quickly. The package is an incredible offering for golf fans, who – like us – are also very excited to see the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in 2020!”
