BankPlus recommits as fan pavilion and junior pro-am sponsor for Sanderson Farms Championship

The Sanderson Farms Championship announced today that BankPlus has committed to continue as sponsor of the popular BankPlus Fan Pavilion and the BankPlus Junior Pro-Am. The 2019 Sanderson Farms Championship is scheduled for September 16-22 at The Country Club of Jackson.

The BankPlus Fan Pavilion is a shared hospitality venue on the 12th green with a tiered viewing deck that overlooks the 13th hole. Accessible to all spectators with an upgraded ticket, the open-air setting offers premium concessions and a cash bar, as well as large-screen TVs. Single-day tickets to the Fan Pavilion are $45 and a weekly ticket is available for $100. Both can be purchased online through Ticketmaster, at Will Call during tournament week, or as an upgrade onsite. All proceeds from the venue will go to Friends of Children’s Hospital.

“We are honored to once again partner with the Sanderson Farms Championship as part of Mississippi’s largest professional sporting event,” said Bill Ray, CEO of BankPlus. “We feel the BankPlus Fan Pavilion is the perfect venue for spectators to get as close to the action as possible.”

“We are deeply appreciative to BankPlus for their ongoing support of the Championship,” said Steve Jent, executive director of the Sanderson Farms Championship. “The BankPlus Junior Pro-Am, recognizing Mississippi’s most outstanding junior golfers, is the only Pro-Am of its kind on the PGA TOUR, while the BankPlus Fan Pavilion provides a lively gathering place for everyone to watch the best professional golfers in the world.”

Junior amateurs will have the opportunity to play alongside a PGA TOUR professional during the BankPlus Junior Pro-Am, a 9-hole event set for Wednesday, September 18 on The Country Club of Jackson’s Cypress course. The teams are set as part of the Mississippi Golf Association’s Junior summer league.
