Undoubtedly you might recognize the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide for providing fans with great entertainment and having compelling winners, and you likely have a memorable moment or two from this premiere stop on the PGA TOUR. Golf’s greatest champion, Jack Nicklaus, hosts one of the truly elite fields in golf May 29 – June 4 at storied Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, for the 42nd playing of the Memorial.
What you may not think about as you take in all that the Memorial has to offer with family and friends is the concentrated efforts Tournament officials make each year to connect with fans. In 2017, the Tournament is introducing several new venues and attractions that have been designed to appeal to all patrons. Whether you simply love being outdoors, enjoy the social scene at one of central Ohio’s largest sporting events, or are a die-hard golf fan, you will have a variety of experiences throughout the golf course to choose from at this year’s Memorial.
The Patio at Patron Village is an area open to all Tournament patrons located between the Memorial’s 10th fairway and 14th green. The Patio is an ideal spot to hang out, and it includes outdoor games like corn hole, darts and a custom golf experience called the “Bunker Challenge”. Take a picture with your friends at the selfie wall, check out the car you’ve always wanted at the Lexus Car Display and choose from enhanced food and beverage options, including Beers of the Memorial from MillerCoors and the Patrόn House featuring custom cocktails.
