Tune in! TPC Southwind looking FINE!

TPC SOUTHWIND is the host course for the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational golf tournament in Memphis, TN on July 30 – August 2 this year.

A recent decision by tournament officials and the PGA Tour ruled out any spectators at this year’s tournament due to COVID-19 concerns. This is the 30th year as host course for this high-profile tournament.

Director of Golf Operations Nick Bisanz and his staff, along with golf dog Millie have the course in great condition for the tournament. Renovations and addition of some out-of-play fine fescue areas will add to the beauty and challenge of this tournament. These fine fescue roughs have been seeded to TRADITION FINE FESCUE MIX from Seed Research of Oregon for over 15 years with great success. Tradition stands up to the annual temperature swings in Memphis, and tolerates tree shade well in some rough areas. Tradition makes a great natural rough to play out of, and can be maintained Greens are Champion bermudagrass, tees and fairways are Meyer zoysia and the roughs and approaches are 419 & TifSport hybrid bermudagrasses.

Please tune in and enjoy some good golf and Great Grass!
