Long® Fence Co. Inc. Selected by the USGA to Provide Services for the 2014 U.S. Open
Long® Fence Co. Inc. was chosen by the United States Golf Association (USGA) to supply barricades for both the 2014 Men's and Women's U.S. Open tournaments to be held at Pinehurst Resort and County Club in North Carolina. As one of the tournament's preferred vendors, Long Fence Co. will supply pedestrian barricade panels which total over 20,292 linear feet. The panels will help establish the course and effectively separate golfers from spectators.
Although being part of the event this year is big news, it may have come as no surprise to some that Long® Fence Co. Inc. was once again considered a lead contender for providing barricade services, considering that they had participated in both the 2011 and 2013 U.S. Opens, providing both fence supplies and barricades for the championship tournament. "We're very excited to be a part of this event once again," says Brett Crouse, a member of the marketing team for Long® Fence Co. Inc. "This is one of several pedestrians barricade jobsites we've been a part of in the last several years, and we're happy to continue providing quality barricades for national sports events."
On June 2nd, a four-man crew from Long® Fence will arrive at Pinehurst to set up the barricades. 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. Pinehurst Resort has eight golf courses in total, and for many years was the world's largest golf resort, as ranked by Guinness World Records.
Long® Fence, a family owned business in operation since 1945, primarily serves the mid-Atlantic region from Pennsylvania to Georgia. Large-scale government and commercial fencing installations, however, can be found throughout the United States. Serving both residential and commercial clients, for 70 years, Long® Fence installs all types of fencing and related products including controlled access and homeland security solutions, gates, decks, architectural pavers and irrigation systems. Recent pedestrian barricade jobsites include the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, PA, the Baltimore Grand Prix, The Susan G. Komen Maryland Race for the Cure and the 50th Anniversary March on Washington held in Washington DC.
