It’s Golf and Wyndham Vacation Fun all Week Long

 Wyndham Vacation Fun to be Part of the Wyndham Championship

Wyndham Vacation Fun to be Part of the Wyndham Championship

Following a PGA Championship last week that didn’t turn out like probably anyone other than perhaps Jason Duffner himself expected, this week takes us o the Wyndham Championship and a special tournament that offers fans and spectators lots of Wyndham vacation fun.

Sponsored by Wyndham Worldwide, this tournament is significant to the world of professional golf, in that it is the last PGA Tour event of the regular season before the playoffs begin. For any Tour player who is short on points at this time of year, the Wyndham Championship is a “must-play-well” event in order to earn needed points before the FedEx Cup.

Originally called the Greater Greensboro Open, this historic tournament has been contested on the rolling greens of North Carolina golf courses since 1938. That year, along with in 1946, 1949, 1950, 1955, 1956, 1960, and 1965, the tournament winner was the legendary golfer Sam Snead.

Who this year’s tournament winner will be is probably anyone’s guess with a wide-open field and many players jockeying to improve their standing late in the season. But counted as “winners” will certainly be the many charities the tournament supports, along with all the fans who enjoy an “Escape to the Wyndham” with its enhanced tournament week experience.

Escape to the Wyndham for Wyndham Vacation Fun

Each year the Wyndham Championship attracts over 80,000 fans to the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina. Fans can enjoy a week watching golf’s top contenders, along with opportunities to win prizes and enter daily vacation giveaways and other special activities. Guest activities include:

  • Key to Wyn, a specially designed expo tent designed like a resort lobby, where guests can keep tabs of the contests and giveaways.
  • Margaritaville at The Wyndham boardwalk, a complimentary hospitality hub themed like a seaside retreat and featuring live entertainment, concessions and other vacation-inspired activities.
  • A 3D vacation-themed sidewalk art display for photo opportunities.
  • The Wyndham Adventure Zone designed just for the kids, featuring bounce houses and a rock-climbing wall.
  • Onsite caricature artist.
  • And, onsite golf-swing analysis.

As Stephen P. Holmes, chairman and chief executive officer, Wyndham Worldwide, explains, “We are incredibly proud to be a part of the rich history and tradition of the championship in North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad. As a family-oriented company, Wyndham Worldwide is committed to creating great experiences for our guests and customers of all ages, and we have created an outstanding vacation atmosphere at the Wyndham Championship.”
