PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla., March 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- QuintEvents, a leader in major-event travel, hospitality and ticket packages, launches a new partnership with THE PLAYERS Championship to become the Official Experience Provider for this annual PGA TOUR event held May 10-15, 2016, at The Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach.
THE PLAYERS is favored for its island-green 17th hole, The Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass and the finest field in golf, as well as its commitment to providing the best fan experience in all of professional golf.
"We are very excited to join forces with the PGA TOUR to provide golf fans with the greatest golf experience available, THE PLAYERS Experiences," says QuintEvents' C.E.O. Brian Learst. "This is our first Official relationship with the PGA TOUR and we are eager about the incredible experience our clients will have in THE PLAYERS Club, the centerpiece of the program." 

THE PLAYERS Experiences program will provide a complete set of travel experience packages, including THE PLAYERS Club and Greenside Lounge tickets and hospitality, accommodations at various hotels, including the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort and Spa, ground transportation, valet parking, celebrity appearances and more.
"With QuintEvents' reputation as the gold standard of their industry, it made perfect sense to partner with them on our super high-end products, in particular, the launch of our VIP program," explains Matt Rapp, executive director of THE PLAYERS Championship, said. "Their database is full of discerning individuals that expect nothing but the best when they travel to sports or entertainment venues, and they will provide a fantastic complement to the strong corporate base that has already secured space in THE PLAYERS Club."
The program guarantees authenticity of the tickets to the practice and tournament rounds of the Championship, available for individual days or the full week, with access options to several levels of premium hospitality. Practice Round packages are available Tuesday and Wednesday of the Championship, while Tournament Round package-holders gain access Thursday, Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday.
