Access to the premiere members-only Turf Club at Churchill Downs is an experience most people only dream of having, but with Derby Experiences’ Official Ticket Packages, you can enjoy the excitement of the Kentucky Derby and Oaks from this exclusive venue overlooking the finish line!  No need to purchase a season-long membership to gain entry into the Turf Club; just secure a package from Derby Experiences to ensure the most incredible Derby and Oaks experience possible.

With Derby Experiences, all Turf Club packages include amenities such as on-site event directors, an official gift bag and a VIP Fast Access Pass to allow for faster and more secured access into Churchill Downs’ gates 1, 10 and 17.  Our in-suite, full-service hospitality venue located in the Turf Club includes access to a premium open bar, private wagering stations and simulcast TV coverage.  With the exception of the Roses Terrace package where dining options can easily be added, gourmet plated meals are included in all Turf Club packages.  Accommodations at luxurious area hotels such as The Galt House can easily be added for a stress-free Derby weekend in Louisville!

Not enough for you?  Interior renovations are slated to begin at the end of November 2015 to completely overhaul and upgrade the Turf Club and several other premium seating areas at Churchill Downs.  Spaces will be reimagined with a swanky allure and décor that pays homage to the rich history of Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby.  Additionally, Gates 10 and 17 will include reconfigured express entries as well as two exclusive Turf Club express elevators, making accessing the Turf Club easier than ever for guests!
