Top five ways to be a kid, DBC style

As summer winds down and the school season sets in, kids need a place to enjoy their final days of freedom with fun activities tailored exclusively for them. Well, look no further than the Deutsche Bank Championship — we guarantee a blast for all. From the front gates to each corner of the course, here are the five best ways kids can spend their day during each round of New England’s Labor Day tradition:

1. Play a quick round … or two

Located in Spectator Alley, the Kids Village is highlighted by a fun and challenging nine-hole miniature golf course, where kids can test their putting skills on holes such as “Henrik’s Hole-in-One,” “Tiger’s Twist” and “Hoffman’s Hook,” while battling obstacles such as a windmill, a lighthouse and tricky twists and turns throughout the round.

2. Mascot Meet & Greet

On Saturday, August 30, Kids Village will host the annual Mascot Meet & Greet from 11 am to 12pm. In attendance will be Slyde from the New England Revolution, Boomer from the Boston Cannons, Blades from the Boston Bruins and Pat the Patriot. Kids will have a chance to meet, interact with and play some miniature golf with the mascots during this special visit!

3. Bounce around!

In Kids Village again this year, there is a massive and daunting moon bounce obstacle course where kids can compete against one another and race through the challenging hurdles and hitches of the course. But if you’re looking to just jump around in a “jumpy house,” we have one of those too…

4. Nothing better than a front-row seat

At the Deutsche Bank Championship, we want viewers of all ages to be able to see the action from all points on the course. We have reserved Kid Zones throughout the course where kids are provided unobstructed views of their favorite players. These Zones are located on the 1st Tee, 9th Green, 10th Tee, 16th Green, 18th Green and directly on the practice facilities. Here, kids can have the opportunity to enjoy their favorite golfers — such as Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler – without grown-ups getting in their way!

5. Geography, Science & Creativity 

There’s more to Kids Village than just fun and games. Kids also have the opportunity to mix things up in the Science & Geography Center or channel their inner artist in the Creative Center. With so many exciting exhibits, Kids Village serves as a well-rounded fun zone for kids of all ages to have a blast.
