Fort Wayne (incnow.tv)- After selling out of its original value-based hospitality packages, the Hotel Fitness Championship (Aug. 26-Sept. 1) at Sycamore Hills Golf Club has added two new locations on the course for businesses to entertain top clients or executives at the tournament, the hosting Western Golf Association has announced.

While all skyboxes have sold out, the only remaining hospitality location on the 18th hole is the Champions Club where packages are available for 10 guests and include food and beverages. There are also daily and weekly ticket options for two upgraded venues on-course with food and beverage available for purchase.

“The response from the Fort Wayne business community has been even better than anticipated,” said Duke Butler IV, tournament director, on behalf of the WGA. “The Hotel Fitness Championship is one of the best ways to entertain key clients and associates in the Summit City, and we’re grateful to those businesses who are already on board. We also encourage those interested to reach out immediately before the last of the packages sell out.”

Opportunities also remain to get involved in the Hotel Fitness Championship’s Chick Evans Memorial Pro-Am, which offers the chance to play with a member of the PGA TOUR or Web.com Tour on Wednesday of tournament week. All proceeds benefit the Evans Scholars Foundation and both individual and foursome options are available. The majority of the cost of participation is tax deductible. Each foursome will have the opportunity to pick their professional player at a Tuesday night draw party. The top players from the PGA TOUR and Web.com Tour in the Hotel Fitness Championship field will be participating in this Pro-Am.

Players who are eligible for the Hotel Fitness Championship include the top-75 money winners on the Web.com Tour at the conclusion of the Regular Season; players who finish 126-200 on the PGA TOUR's FedExCup points list at the end of the TOUR’s Regular Season; and, any non-members who earn enough points to place them among 126-200 on the FedExCup points list at the end of the Regular Season.

All proceeds from the 2013 Hotel Fitness Championship will benefit the Evans Scholars Foundation, which awards full tuition and housing college scholarships to caddies from modest means.
