The School District of Pickens County, Greenville County Schools, and the School District of Oconee County have agreed to honor each other’s senior citizen resident passes allowing free admission at athletic events.

Pickens County’s “Golden Apple Pass” allows county residents 65 years old or older to attend athletic events for free. Under the agreement, seniors will be able to support their teams at away games in Greenville or Oconee counties for free as well. The pass will continue, as it always has, to operate with the following restrictions:

  • The pass may not be used for pre-season jamborees or post-season playoffs,
  • The pass may only be used by the person to whom it is issued and is non-transferrable (it does not allow free admission for guests of the card-holder),
  • In rare cases, a school may limit the use of a pass for cost-effectiveness reasons,
  • The pass may be revoked if used improperly.

“This is something the grandparents of many students have wanted for many years. I’m very grateful to our athletic directors and their counterparts in Greenville and Oconee for working together to make this possible for fans,” said Dr. Danny Merck, SDPC Superintendent.

Pickens County senior citizens can acquire a Golden Apple Pass at the school district office at 1348 Griffin Mill Road, Easley, SC 29640. They must show a photo ID indicating their residence and date of birth to receive a card.
