The Regions Tradition
The tournament is an official event within the PGA Tour, serving as one of the five senior major championships. The Regions Tradition draws major players to the Birmingham area, as well as a host of celebrity guests. While the Tradition has been held at several courses in its 30-year history, Regions brought the tournament to Alabama in 2010. Before arriving at Greystone, the game was held at the Shoal Creek Golf and Country Club.
The Watering Hole
Drawing inspiration from the 16th hole “Coliseum” at the Phoenix Open, the tournament will feature a festive spectator zone overlooking the 10th hole. The space is made up of several public venues like the Chateau Souverain Wine Lounge, the Michelob Ultra Club, and other hot spots. The Cocina Club will offer food and drink courtesy of Cocina Superior. There will be numerous celebrates participating in the event, and you can watch Rockey Felker and Chip Lindsey tee off on the 10th that Wednesday.
Golf for a Good Cause
Since the event began in 1992, it has earned over $17 million for regional charities. Over $4.5 million of that amount has been raised since the event became the Regions Tradition in 2011. Much of the tournament’s charity funds have benefited Children’s of Alabama.
