This year’s event will once again feature local Austin eats, with Torchy’s Tacos, Mighty Cone, Micklethwait Craft Meats, Amy’s Ice Creams and an all-new healthy addition from Ranch Hand, featuring organic bowls.
Drink options abound, too. Fans can check out the GREY GOOSE 19th HOLE, where they’ll be serving the tournament’s signature cocktail – the Pennybacker Press – in the tournament’s signature Yeti cup or head out to the Oak Grove on the 6th hole where a host of great brews will be served.
It wouldn’t be Austin if there weren’t some live music and tech to enjoy at the festival too. At the ultimate fan-friendly zone, the Dell Technologies Fan Village just to the right of the 16th fairway, fans can catch live music, explore new regions of space with Dell’s virtual reality Moon Rover, improve their golf game with the Topgolf swing simulator or race to the finish with the Mclaren driving experience.
