Wyndham Championship, Uber Renew Partnership

GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Wyndham Championship and Uber are joining forces again this year to offer Piedmont Triad golf fans access to an on-demand, safe transportation option throughout the Wyndham Championship, the tournament announced today.  The 78th annual Wyndham Championship is set for Aug, 14-20, 2017 at Sedgefield Country Club.

With Uber, the Wyndham Championship’s ride-sharing app of choice, tournament patrons can use the Uber app to request a ride to drop them off at a designated Uber Lot near the tournament entrance.  Riders will be able to request a ride home from the Uber Lot, located at the intersection of Anson and Rockingham Roads, a short walk from the tournament’s main entrance.  Signage will clearly direct patrons to the Uber Lot. First time Uber riders can download the app from the App Store and use the promo code WYNDHAM17 for a free first ride on uberX, up to $15 in value.  Users can also sign up here:https://get.uber.com/go/wyndham17

“The safety of all Wyndham Championship spectators is always our top priority,” tournament director Mark Brazil said. “Uber was very popular at the Wyndham last year, and we’re happy to have them back on site this year.  We have many great fan amenities at the Wyndham, and we want all our fans to have a great time.  But more than that, we want them to get home safely following a fun escape to the Wyndham by providing access to safe, reliable rides on-demand using the Uber app.”
