Who knows more about golf than the PGA Tour?
So when Ranger Golf was chosen to build the Tournament Players Club of Boston, part of a nationwide network of world-class TPC courses owned or operated by the PGA Tour, it was a huge feather in Ranger’s cap.
Now it’s time to add a few more feathers. Completed in 2001, the highly acclaimed TPC of Boston is the site of the second annual Deutsche Bank Championship, an officially sanctioned PGA Tour event with a $5 million total purse.
The nationally televised event showcases the beauty of the Arnold Palmer-designed course, built by Ranger Golf to complement andprotect the surrounding environmentally sensitive lands.
The Deutsche Bank Championship held its inaugural event at the TPC of Boston in 2003, less than two years after construction, a rarity in the golfing world. It drew many of the PGA’s most talented golfers, who vied for the $900,000 first-place prize money.
The 2004 event is scheduled for August 31 through September 6 (Labor Day). Defending champion is Scott Adams, who notched his first Tour win at the 2003 event. The field again will feature many of the Tour’s leading players, with charitable proceeds benefiting the Tiger Woods Foundation.
“Any time one of the courses we’ve built hosts a PGA event it is a huge compliment,” said Jade Work, V.P. of Ranger Golf and a former professional golfer himself. “That’s one of the most sincere compliments we can receive about the quality of our construction work.”
The option exists for the TPC of Boston to host the Deutsche Bank Championship for an additional two years, extending through Labor Day 2006, according to Tour officials.
The TPC of Boston is a private course located in the Great Woods of Norton, Massachusetts.
