Posted in: Long Fence News
Long ® Fence Co. Inc. was chosen by the USGA to supply barricades for both the Men's and Women's U.S. Open tournaments, which are scheduled for June 12-15 and June 19-22 respectively. The U.S. Open at Pinehurst No.2, of which Long Fence Co. will be one of the tournament’s preferred vendors, will be supplied with over 2706 pedestrian barricade panels which totals over 20,292 linear feet. These panels will help establish the course and effectively separate golfers from spectators.
On June 3nd, a four-man crew from Long ® Fence Co. Inc. began set up of the barricades at Pinehurst. Once set up, the barricades will act as an effective pedestrian control. This system of fencing is important not only for keeping golfer distractions at a minimum, but also for keeping the tournament safe for all participants.
