Ponte Vedra Beach, FL (PRWEB) May 07, 2014
Originally known as the Tournament Players Championship, The Players will compete on the expertly-designed stadium course at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL this week. As one of the most anticipated tournaments on the PGA Tour, the tournament boasts the largest purse as well as the strongest field. Offering the highest prize fund of any tournament in golf ($10 million in 2014), The Players Championship will be played from Thursday May 8 through Sunday May 11. The stakes are high from the perspective of the 144 golfers competing for this year’s share of a record purse, valued at $1.8 million.
Able to handle 50,000 fans in one day, the Marriott Golf Resort & Spa will be bursting at the seams with guests and fans this week. To efficiently connect the hotel to the Championship Course, York Bridge Concepts™ (YBC) has Decero™ designed and constructed two timber golf cart/pedestrian bridges with York Custom Handrails and the exclusive TPC (Textured Polymer Coating) on the deck to ensure the safety of both vehicular and pedestrian traffic to and from the venue. Chosen for their efficient and timely completion of projects, as well as their beautiful timber designs, YBC was given a tight schedule prior to the Championship opening. “I am always impressed by a company who performs the way they said they would… all work was completed early and we hit our projected start date without a hitch,” confirmed Ken Earley, Senior Project Manager for ValleyCrest Landscape Development. After completing the construction phase, field crews were re-mobilized to the site in order to complete the company’s York Bridge Services ™, the industry's unique benefit created and developed for YBC clients to ensure the integrity and beauty of all New, custom York Bridges™, as well as the improvement, enhancement and refurbishment of older and/or previously constructed timber bridges or bridges built by third parties.
This Decero™ Design was just the beginning of a process that continued through construction and the culmination of finishing touches placed on the structure by expert crews. “We exclusively design true, one-of-a-kind timber bridges that exude high-quality aesthetics and stand out far from our competition, providing the highest return on investment and unmatched beauty,” says Gil Dreyfus, Public Relations Director for the Design Firms. “We are honored to be a part of the PGA Tour at yet another venue. Not only do the bridges provide necessary physical access to this exciting tournament, they add sophistication and beauty to the already stunning surroundings,” concludes James York, President & CEO of YBC.
As part of the services afforded to hotel guests and clients, Marriott offers transportation on a continuous basis utilizing official hotel carts as part of their exclusive renovation. To visit or for more information on this Gold Ranking Resort, see Sawgrass Marriott.
