When it comes to maintaining golf courses, you need the right machinery to get the job done efficiently, and this is where John Deere comes into play. With its wide range of golf and turf equipment, Deere is prepared to take on any challenge, including PGA TOUR events.
This is why Deere equipment has been called on to help the TPC Sawgrass team prepare for one of the biggest events of the year. The Players Championship, which will take place between March 12 and March 15, began back in 1974. It’s still going strong today, and the championship remains one of the PGA TOUR’s most coveted titles.
But what is the course like in its current state, and how does Deere help groom it for the professionals looking to win it all?
An Overview of TPC Sawgrass
THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass was built with professional golfers in mind, as well as the fans who join in on the fun. As a true “stadium course,” the golf course is accessible and playable by golfers of all abilities.
Former PGA TOUR commissioner Deane Beman developed the course design with golf course architect Pete Dye, and it has made for some of the game’s most dramatic finishes.
“I’ve always loved this golf course,” said pro golfer Adam Scott. “I think it’s an amazing tournament venue.”
A Look at Deere Machinery
The TPC Sawgrass team helps make The Players Championship what it is today with machinery from John Deere. The company has a wide range of lawn and grounds care equipment, including walking greens mowers, riding greens mowers, and rough mowers.
In addition, the TPC Sawgrass team has a strong relationship with its local John Deere dealer. Through this partnership, the team can ensure that they have the right equipment on hand to tackle everything from fairways to putting greens.
“Top to bottom, you can’t find a better equipment provider than John Deere,” says Jeff Plotts, Director of Golf Course Maintenance and Grounds.
