TPC Sawgrass Agronomy Christmas Luncheon

In celebration of the Christmas season, all members of the TPC Sawgrass Agronomy Staff were able to come together and partake in a special luncheon.  A local caterer was brought in to prepare the meal which included a smoked pig and an array of sides.  Once everyone had enjoyed their lunch, a raffle was held in which gifts such as hats, golf shirts and golf balls were given away to our staff members.  The final event of the luncheon was the recognition of the eleven Employee of the Month's for 2013 and the announcement of the Agronomy Employee of the Year.  The eleven Employee's of the Month from this year were eligible to win this award which was voted on by the Agronomy staff.  This year's Employee of the Year Award went to Ivan Maradiaga.
