A new chapter of professional golf at Firestone Country Club begins with the 2019 Bridgestone SENIOR PLAYERS Championship. A major on the PGA TOUR Champions, the community will be welcoming World Golf Hall of Fame members such as Colin Montgomerie, Vijay Singh, Mark O’Meara and others who regularly play on the PGA TOUR Champions. These players are legends of the game and will also include fan favorites like Fred Couples, Bernhard Langer and John Daly. The tournament will be held July 11-14th, 2019 and in addition to your favorite players, will feature local cuisine such as Swenson’s, Hatfield’s Goode Grub and Nelly Belly Pizza. The event also features live music after the last putt drops with The Sunrise Jones on Friday and Disco Inferno on Saturday. With an annual economic impact of $15-20 million, the event will continue to give back to the wonderful charities in our community such as Akron Children’s Hospital, University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, The First Tee of Akron, Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank, Summa Health and Cleveland Clinic Akron General.
You can support these local charities by purchasing a ticket to the event or for corporations, purchasing the new Firestone Hall Ten-Pack or any of the customized ticket packages available. Firestone Hall, a new addition for 2019, will provide access to the Main Dining room of Firestone Country Club with upgraded food & beverage for purchase. This ticket package will also feature the opportunity to play Firestone South for $160 per person including lunch on September 30th. Whether you are entertaining your biggest customers and prospects or rewarding your employees, this unique experience is sure to have them on the edge of their seats as they enjoy watching the legends of the game back at Firestone Country Club. Mention that you’re a GCP or COSE member and receive a dozen complimentary golfballs with purchase. To learn more, please contact alexandriagrilliot@pgatourhq.
