This week’s featured application comes from Synthetic Turf Greater Maryland. Pete Albanes and his crew installed EZTee hybrid a few years ago at Congressional Country Club.
Congressional Country Club is located in Bethesda, Maryland. Congressional opened in 1924 and its Blue Course has hosted five major championships, including three U.S. Opens and a PGA Championship.
Recently, Congressional Country Club welcomed tens of thousands of spectators walking and viewing the grounds for the Quicken Loans National, which is a PGA Tour event. The event is hosted by Tiger Woods and benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation.
Peter Albanes was quoted as saying, “The EZ Tee hybrid from Synthetic Turf International that was installed July 2012 just after the Tiger Woods Foundation-PGA event is still the perfect choice for the membership following this recent Quicken Loans PGA event. Its durability and consistent hitting surface profile is the choice when performance counts.”
When the pros were warming up and practicing for the event, they damaged the natural hitting surface considerably. The EZTee system Pete installed allows members and players to still have a warmup practice area that replicates hitting on a natural surface and holds a tee while their existing natural grass heals.
EZTee is a great addition to any course of practice facility because of its versatility and durability.
