Greensboro, NC -- It's all about a tropical vacation theme at the 2012 Wyndham Championship.
The Boardwalk: According to Wyndham officials, the boardwalk is a general public hospitality hub that evokes the feel of a seaside vacation. It was designed to look and feel like a beachside boardwalk.
It will feature live entertainment, fun concession carts, photo booths, a face painter, a Wyndham Championship merchandise kiosk and a bar as well as indoor and outdoor seating provided by Sunbrella®. (Food & beverage are available for purchase)
The Wyndham boardwalk will feature live music Tuesday through Sunday afternoons after tournament play has cleared the first hole across the street, and radio networks will broadcast live shows from the Boardwalk. The Wyndham Boardwalk is located in the new Sedgefield Clubhouse parking lot, adjacent to the "Key to Wyn" expo tent near the main entrance, and it is open to all ticket and credential holders.
Tropical Wear Contest: Fans attending the Wyndham Championship next week will have a chance to win a vacation from Wyndham - the only catch is they'll have to dress in their best tropical wear to win the inaugural Wyndham Championship Tropical Wear Contest to earn a vacation.
On Saturday, Aug. 18 during the third round of the Wyndham, Piedmont Triad golf fans should come to Sedgefield in their most creative tropical outfit. Tropical wear such as beach hats, sandals, Hawaiian shirts, shorts, skirts, grass skirts, sarongs, cover-ups, scuba gear, etc. are examples of acceptable contest attire. Thong bikinis and other clothing that is not widely considered family friendly will not be eligible for the contest.
Wyndham Championship officials will be on the course Saturday looking for the best, most creative tropical outfits, and those fans whose outfits warrant tournament staff to take a picture will be invited to the Wyndham Boardwalk adjacent to the Sedgefield Clubhouse at 4 p.m. to compete for the first-place prize. Tropical wear-clad fans can also participate in the contest by simply showing up at the Boardwalk prior to judging on Saturday to be a part of the official contest.
First place will receive a seven-night Wyndham stay from Resort Condominiums International and be offered the opportunity to be featured in the 2013 Wyndham Championship marketing campaign. Second place will receive a four-day, three-night Wyndham stay compliments of Wyndham Vacation Ownership, and third place will receive a two-night stay at the Wyndham Bonnet Creek Resort in Orlando compliments of Wyndham Hotel Group. In addition, access to the Wyndham beach viewing platform across the lake from the 15th green at Sedgefield will be randomly distributed to people that are dressed for the contest. Everyone who participates in the contest judging will receive a small prize.
