Our Chairmen for the 2013 Rex Hospital Open are Hall of Fame Golfer BIlly Casper and CAPTRUST Executive Jimmy Talton. Casper one of the most accomplished golfers in the history of the PGA Tour. Casper has 51 PGA Tour wins in his career, and is considered by many the best putter of his era. Jimmy Talton serves as senior vice president and financial advisor at CAPTRUST and places a high priority on community. Talton currently serves as a member of the Board of Directors for Communities in Schools of Wake County and is a vestry member for Holy Trinity Church.
For the past two years, we have switched the traditional nines at TPC Wakefield Plantation. Be sure to grab a golf course map and pairings guide on site during the tournament. Take the shuttle in from the Rex Healthcare of Wakefield campus, which makes FREE parking and transport easy - you'll be dropped off right at the front gate and then picked up when you're ready to leave. Shuttle stops are also available to holes 11, 15 and 16 after you have purchased tickets at General Admission.
Hospitality options for our patrons are grand, including new "Champions Club" locations on holes 9, 11, 16 and 18. Snacks and beverages are included in the Champions Club ticket price.
We will have expanded seating options on the 18th to include a public grandstand. We're also pushing the ropes on 17 closer to the green to allow for a fantastic seating area and public concessions right behind the green.
In addition to the 19th Hole food & beverage stop, a concessions and viewing area will be located on the 16th green. Soda, beer and public concessions will be available. Last year this was a great public destination to see these pros up close.
