BMW Championship Returns to Chicago's North Shore

Aug. 31, 2017


When patrons arrive at Conway Farms for the 2017 BMW Championship, they will experience the drama, action and excitement of the PGA TOUR’s FedExCup Playoffs in a fun-filled, fan-friendly environment. A first-ever Topgolf interactive experience, a Bavarian-themed Biergarten and new reserved seating on the 18th green are among the many features patrons can look forward during the tournament.

“We’re planning a number of exciting activities for this year’s BMW Championship that we’re confident fans will find thoroughly enjoyable,” said Vince Pellegrino, Western Golf Association senior vice president of tournaments. “We’re committed to providing patrons with an unforgettable experience, and this year may mark our most exciting tournament yet for spectators.”

Ticketing

For the first time ever, patrons have the opportunity to purchase their own seat in a reserved section of grandstand behind the finishing hole at Conway Farms, providing a unique opportunity to experience the excitement of the 2017 BMW Championship up close. Only 120 Greenside tickets are being sold for each round of the event, and there are a limited number of tickets still available for Thursday-Saturday.


Preferred pricing is now available for patrons who purchase their tickets in advance of BMW Championship week. A limited number of tickets will be available at the gate at an increase of $15 per ticket. To learn more or to purchase tickets in advance, visit www.bmwchampionship.com.

In addition, for the first-time ever at a PGA TOUR event, patrons will have the opportunity to participate in the BMW Fan Challenge powered by Topgolf Crush. Patrons will have the chance to compete in a 5-ball challenge, using Toptracer ball-tracking technology, by hitting golf balls at large targets located in the driving range. Participants will accumulate points and compete against scores of the Pros for great prizes, including a VIP trip to the 2018 BMW Championship.

The BMW X3 Hole-In-One Competition will give visitors the opportunity to take a swing for a chance to win an all-new 2018 BMW X3. Located on the 2nd floor of the BMW Fan Challenge powered by Topgolf Crush, not only will patrons have the chance to win the keys to an all-new BMW X3 if they score an ace, but they will also have the opportunity to beat the Pros for daily prizes.

Also, all patrons will have the opportunity to sink a 60-foot putt at the BMW Putting Challenge to help support the Evans Scholars Foundation. Those who successfully make the putt will be entered to win a trip to the BMW Performance Center in Thermal, CA..

Biergarten

To celebrate BMW’s German roots and the start of Oktoberfest, the 2017 BMW Championship will feature a Bavarian-themed Biergarten located between the back of the main clubhouse and the first tee, providing an area for spectators to relax and enjoy a beverage without missing any of the action. With a large video board showing live tournament coverage, you can take a break and enjoy popular local German delicacies and refreshments while enjoying the competition of the BMW Championship.
