  • The Fan Experience at the Deutsche Bank Championship begins when our spectators first purchase their ticket as early as April. After that moment, we are able to communicate all of the excitement that the DBC is building via monthly e-newsletters highlighting on-site activities, new partners and FedExCup updates. Once a spectator arrives during Labor Day Weekend, we are able to direct them to a large parking lot adjacent to the course, which guarantees no longer than a ten minute bus ride to the Championship. From here, our VIP parking lot pass holders are dropped off directly in front of the TPC Boston Clubhouse, and our main spectator parking pass holders begin their day at the 9 th Fairway. While on-site, we offer fans the opportunity to not only watch the top 100 players on the PGA TOUR compete in a Playoff event, but experience interactive exhibits that add to their time with us. Through our exhibitors, we provide our fans with complimentary video analysis of their golf swing and instruction from a PGA teaching professional, the daily opportunity to win airfare from Boston to London, and free snacks to enjoy, to name a few. To add to the experience of families, we created a Kids Village, which features a 9-hole mini-putt and educational games. Our policy of providing complimentary tickets to children 15 and under results in a very family-friendly atmosphere. After Kids Village, families can attend our Kids Zones, viewing areas that provide excellent sightlines from the bleacher sets or spend time at Autograph Alley in search of their favorite players autograph.
  • Players and their families are treated to a first-class experience at the DBC. From the ease of booking accommodations in Providence or Boston to the use of a BMW throughout their time here, no detail is ignored. The feedback that we most hear from players and their families is that the Boston area over Labor Day Weekend offers a tremendous amount of activities while they are in town. We are able to provide to the players: A FedExCup Playoff event, with increased spectator interest, larger national television audiences and an additional level of overall excitement $8 million purse Dedicated Concierge Service Two major cities within a 40 minute drive, featuring luxury hotels and numerous restaurants Sightseeing tips and tourist information to many areas, including: Boston Newport, RI Cape Cod We are also fortunate to host the Championship in a sports-enthused area, as we have four professional teams that are locally revered. We have been able to leverage these relationships to add to the player’s experience while in town. For example, every year players are able to take in a Red Sox game at Fenway Park or check out training camp at Gillette Stadium.
  • We have a 1600 person strong volunteer “Blue Crew” that is the backbone of all Championship activities and critical to our overall success year after year. Over the years, our focus has been to build a sense of community within the volunteer program by promoting team over individual. We feel that this has been accomplished by the limited turnover we see and the fact that the vast majority of our volunteers apply for the same position annually. Within the volunteer package, we provide all with an Official Championship staff shirt, outerwear piece and hat. We also provide weeklong admission, to encourage a return trip to the DBC outside of their shift. While on-site, all volunteers check-in for their shift at the Volunteer Headquarters at the 9 th green, where complimentary breakfast and lunch is provided. We conclude the week of the Championship with an on-site Volunteer Appreciation Party that features live music, a fireworks show and appearance from a PGA TOUR Professional. We have over 700 volunteers in attendance annually at this dinner. And, as a final Thank You, we host a Volunteer Appreciation Dinner in November. Attendance is generally over 1000 people and we provide roughly 75 prizes through a free raffle.
  • We are fortunate to work with over one hundred different corporate partners each year that leverage the DBC to meet their business goals. These goals are met through a variety of different programs, including first-class hospitality, brand association within DBC venues or engagement with the spectators on-site. We work with the company to determine what their net end result is. Once this is determined we can best match up their goals with our assets and over-deliver on their expectations. Partners are able to promote their products on-site in our Fan Village, Courtyard at Spectator Alley and Spectator Commons of TPC Boston. We have real estate to host over twenty different exhibitors and do so in a way that promotes fan interaction and is evenly distributed throughout the course. From a hospitality standpoint, we can meet any budget through private hospitality, shared hospitality, ticket programs and our Red Sox Legends Am-Am. We have also extended the life of the partnership to focus on more than simply week of the Championship, by adding special events throughout the year and allowing for logo inclusion on our website and letterhead to our Founders Club members.
