May 8, 2017 by Joe Vargo
The Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide tees off at Dublin's Muirfield Village Golf Club on May 29, and as always, there are lots of new ways to enjoy the atmosphere. Practice rounds are May 29-31, and the tournament runs from June 1-4. While you're out watching the world's best golfers, check out these areas for some unique experiences on the course:
THE PATIO AT PATRON VILLAGE
The Patio at Patron Village is an area open to all Tournament patrons located between the Memorial’s 10th fairway and 14th green. The Patio is an ideal spot to hang out, and it includes outdoor games like corn hole, darts and a custom golf experience called the “Bunker Challenge.” Take a picture with your friends at the selfie wall, check out the car you’ve always wanted at the Germain Lexus Car Display and choose from food and beverage options, including Beers of the Memorial from MillerCoors, wine, and the Patrón House featuring custom cocktails.
THE HILL ON NO. 12
Looking to lounge and have a great view of one of the best par-3 holes in golf? The Hill on No. 12 will be your destination, located on the Memorial Tournament’s signature 12th hole with brilliant views of competition at one of the most picturesque spots at world-renowned Muirfield Village Golf Club.
