Military Tribute to offer free daily tickets thanks to Bluestone Resources donation


WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.V. (WVNS) – The 2019 Military Tribute at The Greenbrier will provide free daily grounds passes to all guests thanks to a donation from Bluestone Resources Inc.

Beginning on Friday, Aug. 16 at 11 a.m. fans can visit and register for their complimentary ticket to Southern West Virginia’s stop on the PGA Tour.

Upon registration, fans just have to provide the name of a living military member or first responder that they consider to be an “Everyday Hero.” Those names will be displayed on The Greenbrier Wall of Honor, which will be on the grounds of the Old White TPC.

In addition, each of those military and first responder names will be entered in to a pool for drawings and prizes reaching a value of more than $500,000, courtesy of Bluestone Resources and other sponsors. More than 150 prizes will be given away throughout tournament week.

Among those prizes will be a $25,000 cash prize for each hole-in-one on the 18th hole, as well as a $2,500 prize for every Eagle on the 17th holes, and $1,000 for every birdie on the 18th.

On Saturday, September 14th, one “Everyday Hero’s” name will be drawn as the last group approaches the 18th green to win a $50,000 cash prize.

In addition to this exciting ticket initiative, A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier has events planned all week long to honor military and first responders. For a complete list you can check out The Greenbrier’s website.

There will be a parade on Wednesday, September 11th at 5:00 p.m. The parade will travel through the town of White Sulphur Springs and loop around the front of The Greenbrier Hotel.

A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier begins with practice rounds on Monday, September 9-11, with the 11th being Wednesday’s Pro-Am. PGA Tournament play begins on Thursday, Septmber 12th and concludes with a special trophy presentation on Sunday, September 15th.
