GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Wyndham Championship is the final event of the PGA TOUR’s FedExCup regular season, but this professional golf tournament is also known as the “Triad’s Party of the Year.” That party will be a little bit better this year with the debut of Tito’s Stillhouse near the ninth green, the tournament announced today. The 79th annual Wyndham Championship is set for Aug. 14-19, 2018 at Sedgefield Country Club.
Tito’s Stillhouse aims to capture the Tito’s Handmade Vodka brand experience with the look and feel of Austin, Texas, where Tito’s was created in 1995 and is distilled today. At the Tito’s Stillhouse, Wyndham Championship patrons will have access to concessions and excellent beverages including the tournament’s signature cocktail, the “Wyndham Welcome” for purchase. Tito’s Stillhouse will be situated between the ninth green and the scoring area where all PGA TOUR golfers go following each round of official tournament play. In addition to Tito’s Stillhouse, the Tito’s Handmade Vodka Lounge will remain in its usual greenside location offering a perfect view of the play at the ninth hole.
“We want Wyndham Championship attendees to be able to engage and understand our brand story a little bit while enjoying some great golf along with concessions and delicious cocktails,” Tito’s state manager Joseph Ligon said. “Knowing not everyone has been to our distillery, the look and feel of the Stillhouse Lounge is a fun way for them to see some brand elements that define us: copper pot stills, Austin-esque decorations, tasty cocktails and opportunities to sign up to be a Tito’s Tasters and get some fun Tito’s give-a-way items.”
Among the other free Wyndham Championship fan amenities are Margaritaville at the Wyndham, the Sunbrella© Comfort Zone at the 12th green, the BB&T Fan Pavilion at the ninth green, the Wyndham Beach and the Harris Teeter Kids Zone near the main entrance. The Wyndham Championship is a two-time winner of the PGA TOUR’s “Most Fan-Friendly Event” award.
