Next week (Oct 1-7, 2012) the Web.com Tour rolls into town making its stop at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm in Potomac, Maryland for the Neediest Kids Championship.
This event is the next generation of the Melwood Open event that was on the Nationwide Tour. Web.com has replaced Nationwide as sponsor and Neediest Kids has replaced Melwood as the charity.
Each year, the Web.com Tour’s Neediest Kids Championship attracts some of the world’s best golfers to the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area for a week of world-class golf competition and fun activities for the entire family to enjoy.
Family Day presented by Dominion Power will take place on Saturday, Oct. 6 and will feature moon bounces, face painting, cotton candy machines, a youth golf clinic as well as a trick-shot clinic, and a grand finale Fireworks Show presented by The Burger Joint.
Tickets start at only $10, which makes this an affordable way to take the whole family to see some professional golf.
Also, all children 18 and under are admitted free of charge. And, military personnel receive complimentary admission courtesy of Lockheed Martin.
