Rex Hospital Open Celebrates with Week of Golf, Fan-Friendly Events

WHAT
The Rex Hospital Open offers golfers, fans and families a full week of activities, June 16-23, at TPC at Wakefield Plantation in North Raleigh.

WHY
The Web.com Tour is the official proving ground of the PGA TOUR. Professional golfers travel from around the world to compete in the Rex Hospital Open, which is the Triangle’s premier golf and charity event. Rex works with regional nonprofit organizations to give back to the community through its Charity Ticket Program.
