Quicken Loans Tournament: Not Your Average PGA Tour

This year the Congressional Country Club welcomes back the 2016 Quicken Loans National PGA Tour and it’s going to be better than ever.

When you think about golf, you clearly think about DC-based food trucks, Grey Goose Vodka Lounges and rooftop parties right? Well then you don’t know about the changes in store this year.


This year, The Boardwalk area is open to the public for any spectators with a Grounds ticket and to all other ticket holders. The Boardwalk will feature a miniature putt-putt course, food trucks, and other family-friendly activities on the 11th green. They will have three local food trucks that will be at the tournament Thursday, June 23 through Sunday, June 26. This is the first year they will have food trucks on course and spectators can get a “taste” of DC. The food trucks will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and will be located at The Boardwalk.

The food trucks in attendance are:

Food trucks not your thing? Then don’t miss the GREY GOOSE 19th Hole Lounge, Michelob ULTRA Grove and The Yard that are open to the public. The lounge is open to the public and will provide GREY GOOSE cocktails with a place to relax in an air conditioned space. Located near 18 green so fans can get a drink after a loop of the back nine. In the Michelob ULTRA Grove Fans can enjoy a wide variety of food and beverage items for purchase including an array of Anheuser-Busch products. The Michelob ULTRA Grove, located on the 6th hole, features outdoor seating and a place to gather with friends. New in 2016, in The Yard on 18, fans can grab a cold one and relax with a view of PGA players as they end the day at the infamous par-4. The Yard will include a Michelob ULTRA bar and big screen for full coverage of the action on course.


So, don’t go as far as Happy Gilmore, but certainly untuck your shirt and #DeclareYourDay!
