GREENSBORO, N.C. – In its never-ending quest to provide the best fan experience on the PGA TOUR, the Wyndham Championship introduces the Sunbrella® Sun Deck in a new fan complex at the ninth green, the tournament announced today. In addition, Sunbrella is the tournament’s new “official volunteer sponsor.” The 77th annual Wyndham Championship is set for Aug. 15-21, 2016 at Sedgefield Country Club.
The Sunbrella Sun Deck is a huge, elevated complex located to the player’s right of the ninth green. The fan complex includes a 20’ x 50’ tent housing the main concessions area. Tournament patrons can enjoy their concessions purchases in comfortable outdoor seating shaded by Capital City Awnings featuring Sunbrella. The Wyndham Championship autograph zone presented by Graphic Visual Solutions is at the back of the Sunbrella Sun Deck adjacent to the scoring area where PGA TOUR golfers sign their scorecards and conduct media interviews after their rounds.
As the tournament’s official volunteer sponsor, the Sunbrella brand will adorn volunteer clothing and be prominently displayed at the Marty Sheets Volunteer Center, the tournament headquarters for some 1,800 volunteers and the all-volunteer tournament committee. In addition, Sunbrella sponsors the tournament’s youth golf clinic held annually on Tuesday of tournament week.
“This new venue raises the bar even further for Wyndham Championship fan amenities,” tournament director Mark Brazil said. “Thanks to our friends at Glen Raven for helping create the Sunbrella Sun Deck; Glen Raven is a major supporter of our PGA TOUR event, our patrons and our volunteers. We appreciate their commitment to the Wyndham Championship.”
The Sunbrella Sun Deck joins the Sunbrella Comfort Zone at the 12th green as on-course fan amenities provided by Glen Raven, Inc. Sunbrella is already one of the tournament’s premier partners, the sponsorship level below only those of title sponsor Wyndham Worldwide and presenting sponsor, BB&T. Sunbrella is an international brand of indoor and outdoor fabric manufactured by Glen Raven, Inc.
