New Venues Will Debut at THE PLAYERS 2012

April 3rd, 2012 · Leave a Comment

Fans were treated to seven new venues at THE PLAYERS in 2011, and this year they can anticipate the addition of three more new venues when the tournament returns to THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, May 7-13. The new venues, all of which are open to the public (no upgraded ticket necessary), are Wine & Dine on 9, The Oasis and the Kid Zone by THE PLAYERS Center for Child Health at Wolfson Children’s Hospital.

  • Wine & Dine on 9 will offer spectators the chance to enjoy gourmet food and wine at THE PLAYERS, including “small plates” offered by Matthew Medure, one of Northeast Florida’s most renowned chefs. Located in a cool, shady area to the left of No. 9 fairway, Wine & Dine on 9 will also feature BERINGER’S expanded portfolio of varietals and will offer tournament-goers the opportunity to watch the action at the par-five 9th in style.
  • The Oasis, located between No. 9 and No. 18 tees, will expand on what has been a popular concession area in years past. The Oasis will still feature a concession area, but fans will also find an open-air tent providing a shaded area to cool off. The venue will also include the NOLET’S Silver Lounge, an enclosed, air-conditioned tent open to all fans age 21 and over offering a range of spirits, including Ketel One flavors and NOLET Silver Gin, for purchase.

  • The Kid Zone by THE PLAYERS Center for Child Health at Wolfson Children’s Hospital will offer parents a family-friendly area to entertain their kids while on-site at the tournament. Activities available at the Kid Zone include a putt-putt course, face painting, temporary tattoos, bag toss games and much more. Located at the end of the Nicklaus Gate walkway behind No. 17 tee, the Kid Zone will also have a misting tent where fans can cool off, as well as a concession area with televisions so adults can still follow the action while their kids play. On Thursday, May 10, THE PLAYERS Center for Child Health will host a “Health Fair” with interactive events and giveaways for kids as they learn about healthy eating habits, sun protection, hydration and more.

Tickets to THE PLAYERS Championship 2012 are on sale at First Coast Publix Super Markets locations, at TPC Sawgrass, online at www.PGATOUR.COM/theplayers and via telephone by calling Ticketmaster at (888) 401-8000.
