“The Memorial is proud to once again join Crawford Hoying in supporting the Bridge Park district and Fore!Fest,” said Tournament Executive Director Dan Sullivan. “Fore!Fest has quickly grown into a community favorite, providing central Ohioans and golf fans an opportunity to enjoy live music, food and beverage options and visit all the shops and restaurants in Bridge Park, including the Memorial Golf Shop.”
Bridge Park will offer live entertainment, promotional activation across the district, as well as restaurant and bar specials leading up to the Memorial Tournament presented by Workday and culminating with Fore!Fest brought to you by Rise Brands.
