Stars and Stripes Outpost Badge Provides Exclusive Access While Supporting Military
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. – (May 14, 2018): The Greenbrier Classic will once again provide the ultimate celebration of America’s Birthday at America’s Resort, and this year the annual PGA TOUR FedExCup event, which will take place July 2-8, is going even further to honor those who help make American Independence possible.
“The Greenbrier Classic has long been a terrific place to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday, but this year we’re planning on making that celebration last all week,” said Habibi Mamone, Executive Tournament Director, The Greenbrier Classic. “We’re planning events throughout the seven days to celebrate the wonderful country we call home and honor the men and women of the military who allow us to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave.”
One example is the new Stars and Stripes Outpost Badge. On sale now, this exclusive badge will give spectators a unique way to watch some of the world’s best golfers take on the challenges of the oldest course on the PGA TOUR, The Old White TPC.
The Stars and Stripes Outpost Badge will give badge holders access to complimentary parking at the State Fair of West Virginia Monday through Sunday, as well as admittance to the Stars and Stripes Outpost Monday through Sunday. Inside this climate-controlled tent, badge holders will find prime viewing along the 12th fairway, indoor and outdoor seating, upscale restrooms and televisions to watch all the action. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
On top of all of those terrific perks, those who purchase the $249 badge will be supporting the United States military, as proceeds from the badge will go to support various military organizations.
“The outpost will provide a wonderful tournament viewing experience and a great place to mingle with friends and family while watching some incredible golf,” said Mamone. “The best part is that you will be supporting some great organizations at the same time.”
As a thank you for their service, The Greenbrier Classic will provide complimentary Stars and Stripes Outpost Badges to members of the military. Tuesday, July 3 will be Military Appreciation Day, and military members who verify their status will receive a complimentary luncheon voucher for that day.
Golf fans wishing to purchase their Stars and Stripes Outpost Badge, as well as military members looking to reserve their complimentary badge, can do so at GreenbrierClassic.com.
