WYNDHAM CHAMPIONSHIP INTRODUCES INTERACTIVE COURSE MAP HIGHLIGHTING TOURNAMENT AMENITIES
GREENSBORO, N.C. – In an ongoing effort to enhance the spectator experience for all of its patrons, the Wyndham Championship has created a new interactive course map available at Wyndham Championship.com, the tournament announced today. The 76th annual Wyndham Championship is set for Aug. 17-23, 2015 at Sedgefield Country Club.
The new interactive map features sections focusing on general information, attractions, public viewing areas and concessions as well as private viewing areas for tournament sponsors. Sections feature multiple entries; clicking on each will show its location on the map as well as pictures and descriptions. The map is designed to function on a computer as well as a mobile device so during tournament week, fans will be able to access the map while enjoying the Wyndham Championship.
“The hard-core golf fan knows where the best places to watch the Wyndham Championship are, but the casual fan who may be at the tournament to engage in the non-golf experience might need direction,” tournament director Mark Brazil said. “With our new interactive map, finding attractions and their locations has never been easier.”
An Escape to the Wyndham can take many different forms. Starting this week, the Wyndham Championship will begin highlighting the top fan-friendly locations at the Wyndham to help fans plan an August escape. From now until the week before the tournament, one spectator location will be posted each week on the tournament’s social media channels, Twitter (#AtTheWyndham), Instagram and Facebook. The fan amenity posts will direct users to the tournament’s new interactive course map at: http://www.wyndhamchampionship.com/spectators/course-map/.
“We have worked hard to make our fan amenities attractive to the masses,” Brazil said. “We have something for everyone, and in the next 10 weeks, we’ll show our fans some places they’ve always liked, a location where they can make a difference and maybe some new places. Each can be its own Escape to the Wyndham.”
