Officials at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial are offering discounted tickets for the 2011 tournament to shoppers during the holiday season. Special holiday rates are in effect through Dec. 31 for grounds badges ($90), daily tickets ($40) and Champions Club VIP badges ($200). All of those prices are at least 10 percent below regular retail prices to the 2011 PGA Tour event, scheduled May 16-22 at Colonial Country Club.
Other items available at discounted holiday prices include access to the Hogan Club at 18 Skybox ($195 daily or $750 weekly) and a week-long parking pass for the TCU lot ($30). Colonial’s “2-fer” package _ two grounds badges, two TCU parking passes and two $25 cash cards good for on-course refreshments or souvenirs _ sells for $300.
