A magnificent location with one of Proteus' best structures

ATLANTA, Georgia – The Barclays PGA Tournament of 2012 took place at Bethpage State Park Black Course in Long Island, New York August 23-26. Nick Watney earned his first victory of the year and beat future winner of the FedExCup Brandt Snedeker by three shots on one of the toughest public courses in the country.

In 2011 the Barclays was shortened to 54 holes due to Hurricane Irene after enduring the aftershocks of an earthquake on the Wednesday of the event. The Proteus hospitality structures withstood both and provided Golf enthusiasts shelter in the structures that sat like a “city in the sky” on top of 30 feet of scaffolding.

As ‘uneventful’ this year’s edition may have seemed compared to 2011, Proteus On-Demand provided the Barclays with its prestigious Delta Vista, which measures to a 17,760 sq ft (30m x 55m) temporary structure with climate controlled hospitality space and open air canopy seating. The horizontal panoramic glass panels allowed VIP guests to follow the excitement on the final hole.

“Bethpage Black is a magnificent location and a great course for the kick-off of the four tournament FedExCup Playoffs,” says Theo den Bieman, CEO of Proteus On-Demand. “One of the best things about Bethpage is the crowds that come out to support the game of golf. The FedExCup playoffs have continued to grow in popularity and the best players have come out this week to show their best golf. We believe our structure on the 18th green has definitely added to the look and feel of what the Barclays tournament represents.”

Proteus On-Demand is looking forward to providing the VIP Hospitality structure for The Barclays in 2013, which will take place Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, N.J.
