Wyndham Championship Offers Teachers, First Responders, Military Free Admission

GREENSBORO, N.C.Merriam-Webster defines “Thank You” as “a polite expression of one’s gratitude.” Simple.  So as a polite expression of its gratitude, the Wyndham Championship is offering free admission to three groups of people that deserve our thanks on a daily basis.  Teachers, first responders and active, reserve and veteran members of the military will once again receive complimentary Wyndham Championship admission in appreciation of what they do for our community, the tournament announced today.  The 79th annual Wyndham Championship is next week at Sedgefield Country Club.

Thanks to generous sponsorship from the Weaver and Bryan Foundations, teachers representing Piedmont Triad-area kindergarten through high school institutions and one guest will receive free admission to the Wyndham Championship Wednesday, Aug. 15 through Sunday, Aug. 19.  Teachers need only show a current school identification card to receive complimentary admission for themselves and a guest.

The Carroll Companies and Bee Safe Storage and Wine Cellars make it possible for Piedmont Triad first responders, including law enforcement, fire and Emergency Medical Technicians, to be admitted to the tournament free of charge with one guest by showing a current identification card Wednesday, Aug. 15 through Sunday, Aug. 19.  As always at the Wyndham, children ages 15 and under are admitted free of charge with a ticketed adult, one child per ticketed adult.

Active duty, reserve, National Guard service members and veterans will receive free admission for themselves and one guest every day of tournament week courtesy of Wyndham Rewards, supporting partners BB&T and Harris Teeter as well as the USO of North Carolina.  Prior to attending the tournament, members of the military wishing to receive free tournament admission and access to the Patriot’s Outpost presented by Wyndham Rewards must pre-register here: https://birdiesforthebrave2.sheerid.com/wyndham-2018/
