WYNDHAM CHAMPIONSHIP TICKETS ON SALE JUNE 16; PGA TOUR EVENT DEBUTS DIGITAL TICKETING; MARGARITAVILLE, CORPORATE HOSPITALITY RETURN
GREENSBORO, N.C. – – With life returning to some semblance of normalcy, the Triad’s Party of the Year – the Wyndham Championship – returns August 11-15, 2021 at Greensboro’s Sedgefield Country Club.
After a 2020 tournament without fans, the 2021 Wyndham Championship, sponsored by Wyndham Rewards, will welcome 15,000 fans per day. Digital tournament tickets will be available for purchase Wednesday morning June 16 by visiting https://bit.ly/3fNvBTL. When fans arrive at the Wyndham Championship, tournament personnel will scan the digital ticket and provide the wrist band for that day of tournament play.
Margaritaville at the Wyndham, the tournament’s signature free hospitality venue, is back with live music every day, upscale food & beverages, margaritas and a full menu of non-alcoholic options. Margaritaville at the Wyndham debuted at the Wyndham Championship in 2013 and has been the centerpiece of the Triad’s Party of the Year ever since.
Hospitality venues for corporate partners also return in 2021. Most venues will be similar to the tournament’s signature hospitality look and feel although some minor adjustments will be made to accommodate partner requests related to COVID-19 mitigation protocol. Limited hospitality availability remains – for more information, please visit https://bit.ly/3w1j6d7.
“It feels great to make this announcement,” tournament director Mark Brazil said. “We played without fans a year ago and felt fortunate to play, but it was quiet and very strange. Having fans back at the Wyndham in August will be the Triad’s first opportunity for this many people to watch live sports in person in almost a year and a half. We’re expecting great crowds and a long-awaited return to normalcy at the Wyndham.”
New this year, the Wyndham Championship will be open to the public Wednesday through Sunday only.
