Greening the planet at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, one wristband at a time

Plant your wristband from the 2024 Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard

Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard

Fans attending the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard know they're in for some top-quality golf by some of the game's best players. But this year, those visiting the Mastercard Club—an upscale hospitality venue open to all cardholders—are in for another treat that will have them seeing green.


As part of Mastercard's efforts to promote sustainability, the wristbands that guests use to access the club are plantable. Each wristband is embedded with wildflower seeds. So when the tournament is finished, you can give yours a fresh, vibrant second life as a patch of colorful wildflowers.


Find a sunny spot in your garden or yard, or place a flowerpot near a window, and cover your flattened wristband loosely with about 3 millimeters of soil. Keep it moist (a spray bottle of water works well) and keep an eye on it. You should see sprouts in 7 to 10 days and fully grown flowers within weeks. And the timing for this mini gardening project couldn't be better, as the tournament takes place just before the start of spring—prime time for these flowers.




The wristbands are impressive even before they're planted and not just because they're your key to the perfect mid-tournament refreshments. Each one is spritzed with priceless™ Optimism, a signature fragrance from Mastercard. The notes of citrus you will smell are designed to lift spirits, a sensory component to the elevated Mastercard Club experience.






The Arnold Palmer Invitational will be held on March 7-10, 2024, at Bay Hill in Orlando, Florida. Visit to buy tickets and plan your visit. And check out to purchase priceless™ Optimism or its sister fragrance, priceless™ Passion.
