GREENSBORO, N.C. – YES! Weekly joins the Wyndham Championship family of sponsors as the title sponsor of the tournament’s new Party Deck at the Sedgefield Country Club 17th green, it was announced today. The 70th Wyndham Championship is set for Aug, 17-23.
The YES! Weekly Party Deck is a massive open-air hospitality venue overlooking the green at the 17th hole, the last of three that make up the “Sweet Spot” at Sedgefield. The YES! Weekly Party Deck, an affordable hospitality option, will join the luxury suites and premium grandstands at the 17th green. The Party Deck credential includes tournament admission, lunch, snacks, Coca-Cola products, beer and wine. Daily passes to the YES! Weekly Party Deck are available for $150, and a weekly pass is $500. Both can be purchased at wyndhamchampionship.com.
“We are extremely excited about increasing our partnership with the Wyndham Championship,” YES! Weekly Publisher Charles Womack said. “I have to give Mark Brazil major credit for this idea; it was like it was custom made for YES! Weekly. The visibility of being on the 17th green and the exciting, fun vibe that will be generated on the party deck made it a no-brainer for us.”
“YES! Weekly and our new 17-green party deck are a perfect match,” tournament director Mark Brazil said. “The “sweet spot” at Sedgefield exceeded our expectations last year; holes 15, 16 and 17 were definitely the place to be on the golf course, but we wanted to expand the experience. The YES! Weekly Party Deck at 17 extends the “sweet spot” experience for our fans while providing an extremely affordable hospitality option for businesses and individuals.”
YES! Weekly is owned by Womack Newspapers, Inc., a Greensboro-based publishing company that produces the Jamestown News, Adams Farm Gazette, Outer Banks Sentinel and several specialty products. YES! Weekly is the Triad’s largest circulated news weekly with coverage in Greensboro, High Point and Winston-Salem.
