Providing for the Professionals

For the convenience and comfort of the professional golfers who practice their golf game at TPC Sawgrass, a mobile rain/shade canopy is provided on the professional driving range tee.  This canopy provides shade for golfers to hit under during the hot summer days, as well as a dry environment during rainy days.  Providing this convenience for our professional golfers requires constant management from our agronomy staff.  Continual movement of the canopy is necessary to prevent weakened turf due to excessive shade and too many divots localized to one area.
