Mastercard Club brings Topgolf Crush to PGA TOUR event in Paramus
The world’s best golfers won’t be the only ones taking swings when the PGA TOUR comes to Bergen County for THE NORTHERN TRUST, the kick-off to the PGA TOUR’s FedExCup Playoffs.
THE NORTHERN TRUST, played at The Ridgewood Country Club August 21-26, is just the second PGA TOUR event to feature Topgolf Crush. The interactive, points-based competition has taken stadiums and arenas across the country by storm since launching in 2017.
New this year, Mastercard cardholders will have a chance to channel their inner-Justin Rose at the Mastercard Club located near the 17th green through an interactive Topgolf Crush experience, free of charge. Mastercard cardholders simply show their Mastercard to gain access to the interactive driving range experience where they will be able to measure how far they hit their shots from certain targets, with the goal of earning as many points as possible.
“Our partnership with the PGA TOUR brings cardholders closer to the sport they love and helps us deliver the ultimate golf experience,” said Cheryl Guerin, executive vice president, North America Marketing & Communications. “Adding Topgolf Crush to our Mastercard Club at THE NORTHERN TRUST provides attendees with a one of a kind Priceless opportunity that we hope inspires a new appreciation for the game.”
In addition to the Mastercard Club, Mastercard cardholders receive unique benefits including a 10 percent discount on all tickets, concessions and merchandise when paying with their Mastercard. Cardholders can now purchase tournament tickets online with the Mastercard discount at www.thenortherntrust.com.
“Topgolf Crush will give golf fans the opportunity of a lifetime to crush golf balls at THE NORTHERN TRUST," said YuChiang Cheng, president of Topgolf Media. “This event will extend the competition spirit beyond the green grass course to the many fans in attendance. We are so excited to partner with the PGA TOUR for a second time and we look forward to having Topgolf Crush on-site activations at numerous events in 2019."
The Topgolf Crush competition is just one of many on-site interactive experiences for fans at THE NORTHERN TRUST. Others include all of the following open-to-the-public venues:
· The First Tee Experience: This immersive, 3,500-square-foot, air-conditioned venue located along the 17th fairway will feature The First Tee mini-golf challenge, an interactive Nine Core Values golf tee wall, a virtual reality gaming area, The First Tee golf simulator, The First Tee ball pit, arts & crafts activities, digital photo booths and a one-of-a-kind art installation. The First Tee Experience will also feature a recharge lounge for adults to watch the live feed of the tournament.
· Garden State Marketplace: This primary gathering area is open to all ticket holders along the 17th fairway and features a collection of signature food offerings from notable restaurants. Fan favorites Fuku and Luke’s Lobster will be returning, and newcomers Shake Shack and Bergen County hot spot Sanducci’s Trattoria will be making their debuts at this year’s event.
· The Expo at Garden State Marketplace: Fans can take a few swings in MD Anderson’s or United Airlines’ golf simulators, play a chipping and putting game in the GEICO tent, sample Coca-Cola products, sign up for Tackle Kids Cancer’s “Birdies to Benefit Tackle Kids Cancer” program and enter for a chance to win prizes at Myrbetriq’s tent, among other fun activities.
“THE NORTHERN TRUST has something for everyone, from die-hard golf fans to families to social-scene seekers,” said Julie Tyson, PGA TOUR Senior Vice President, Championship Management – New York and Executive Director of THE NORTHERN TRUST. “Having Topgolf Crush on-site brings a unique experience that fans of all skill levels can try. Perhaps inspired by the world’s most talented players, we frequently hear that fans want to hit some shots of their own, and now Mastercard cardholders at THE NORTHERN TRUST can do just that in a way that is totally distinct from nearly any other tournament experience nationwide.”
