Learn more about Wyndham Championship's Fore! Good program

August 18, 2017

As one of the world’s largest hospitality companies, Wyndham Worldwide is not only committed to providing great vacation experiences for its guests, but also to serving the local communities where it operates. This commitment is embodied by “Wyndham Championship Fore! Good,” the Tournament’s continued focus to support the Piedmont Triad region in the areas of youth and education, community development and environmental sustainability.

Creating a positive impact in the community has always been a central focus of the Wyndham Championship, and Wyndham Championship Fore! Good highlights all of the ways the Tournament gives back. Whether inspiring the next generation through education, supporting community development, and helping preserve our natural resources, the Wyndham Championship’s local impact is “Fore! Good.”

The Wyndham Championship’s contributions to North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad region reach beyond dollars donated to provide valuable resources to empower the community. The impact can be seen in the numbers: from thousands of meals donated through Birdies Fore Backpacks, to hundreds of college prep sessions provided through Crosby Scholars, to dozens of golf clinics taught through the First Tee of the Triad. Wyndham Championship Fore! Good supports many worthy causes with deep roots in the Piedmont Triad.

Highlights of the tournament’s local contributions through Wyndham Championship Fore! Good include:

  • Youth and Education:  The Wyndham Championship supports local charitable organizations providing backpacks with nutritionally sound meals for children from low-income families to take home every weekend. Each year since the program’s creation in 2014, it has provided more than 350,000 nutritious meals for over 5,200 families in the local Piedmont Triad area.

  • Community Development:  Building on the success of last year’s partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Greensboro, Wyndham Worldwide will once again donate the structure housing the popular fan amenity “Key to Wyn” to a deserving family.  Following the tournament, the house will be disassembled, trucked to its new location and rebuilt into a safe, affordable new home for a Greensboro family.

  • Environmental Sustainability:  Over the past several years, the home of the Wyndham Championship, Sedgefield Country Club, has been on a journey to green this historic course.  Under the management of McConnell Golf, Sedgefield has implemented several sustainability initiatives that have saved energy and cut costs, including lighting upgrades and water efficient fixture installations which help keep their course truly “green.”
