Major Golf Championships
As I awakened today I had to recall to throw the British Open on the tele. For it is only once a year when a golf major is in another continent. Too bad, and at St. Andrews in Scotland , at the Old Course, the birthplace of golf. Yes, Beautiful imagery on TV, and this picture of the clubhouse at Aronimink GC http://www.aronimink.org/ , which I just dug out of my archives. This club recently just hosted the AT&T National http://www.attnational.org/ a few weekends ago which was a breakout win for Englishman Justin Rose.
While just last weekend I saw American Paula Creamer win her first golf major at Oakmont CC http://www.oakmont-countryclub.org/ . That was a great win and I believe a great win for women’s golf as the sport needs home grown talent to contend every weekend, which usually isn’t the case on the LPGA tour.
Upcoming events include the Barclays Championship for the Fedex Cup at Ridgewood CC http://www.rcc1890.com/ , in NJ where this recurring event will be held later this summer on August 26-29th. While in summer 2011 this prestigious event will move to another NJ course marvel at Plainfield CC http://www.plainfieldcc.com/ .
What do all of these courses have in common, save for The Old Course on TV today. They have all benefited from the installation of our subsurface greens drainage restoration process XGD Systems. XGD is certainly proud to have worked on some of these finest venues in championship golf and is truly a testament to our popular greens restoration process. At XGD we are continually adding to our golf championship resume as this fall we will be wrapping up at the last few greens at the best inland golf club in NA at Merion GC, which will be hosting the men’s open in 2013.
In summary I would like to say congratulations to all the clubs mentioned in this post. It is truly a logistics marvel that all of these classy events are pulled off without a hitch. This takes years of diligent planning by each host club as at XGD we are aware of all the behind the scenes planning that each club must encounter on the golf course specifically with our firm years in advance.
