The PGA Championship returns to Southern Hills in Tulsa, Oklahoma this week for the first time since 2007, and the price of a beer has gone up just a bit over the course of 15 years.
Golf fans looking to get a bit sauced at Southern Hills will have to spend a small fortune on a cold beverage.
A Michelob Ultra will cost you $18, while a Stella Artois, Michelob Ultra Seltzer, or cocktail will run you $19. The PGA of America was gracious enough to offer Kona Big Waves, that are undoubtedly no more than 12 ounces, for $15.
If fans are looking to drink and save a few bucks, wine is the drink of choice as a glass costs just $13.
Currently, you can buy a ticket for the first round of the tournament on the secondary market for $89, or in other words, five Michelob Ultras.

Just like every other golf tournament on the planet, the PGA Championship concession and beer prices get compared to the outrageously cheap prices at the Masters. In reality, beer prices are ridiculous at every sporting event not named the Masters.
You can get three beers that come in nice souvenir cups at Augusta National for the cost of just one can of Michelob Ultra at the PGA Championship.
You can expect to be gouged on alcohol and food at any professional sporting event, but the PGA of America is taking prices to new heights here.
For anyone that’s ever attended a PGA Championship in the past, you can expect to wait in what feels like never-ending lines to snag your $18 beer, too.
Golf Fans React To Beer Prices At PGA Championship
If these are genuine prices, it’s price gouging at its finest. $6 for Aquafina should be a criminal offence. 500% mark up? https://t.co/UB1Z38qHII
