Wyndham Championship and 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 77th annual Wyndham Championship is set for Aug, 15-21, 2016 at Sedgefield Country Club.

Through 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 near the tournament entrance.  The Uber pick-up, drop-off area will be located at the intersection of Anson and Rockingham Roads, approximately 150 yards from the tournament’s main entrance and Will Call location.  Uber/Wyndham Championship signage will clearly direct patrons to the pick-up, drop off area. First time Uber riders can download the app from the App Store and use the promo code WYNDHAM16 for a free first ride, up to $20 in value.  Users can also sign up here: https://get.uber.com/go/WYNDHAM16

“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.”
