Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Committee Visits TPC Sawgrass

Last week we welcomed members of the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Venues Committee to the TPC Sawgrass.  We are all excited to have golf back in the Olympics after 112 years.  Gil Hanse, along with Amy Alcott, won the golf course design competition and plans are underway to begin building the course soon.  This project will require the collaboration between many skilled individuals, and we are happy to provide assistance and insight on high level tournament golf.  Pictured below are members of the 2016 Olympic Sports Venues Design Team, TPC Sawgrass Agronomy, PGA Tour Agronomy, and PGA Tour Design.
