Before Bubba Watson, Jim Furyk, Sergio Garcia, Fred Couples, Ernie Els and many other well-known golfers take the course for the Northern Trust Open today, Wheaton World Wide Moving agent Heritage 21st Century Movers hit the course early, preparing the Riviera Country Club for the big tournament this week.
For the 17th consecutive year, Heritage 21st Century Movers sent a nine-man crew and two tractor trailers to the Pacific Palisades, California course and relocated approximately 30,000 – 40,000 lbs. of goods for the tournament. Relocated items included tables, chairs, multiple pianos, locker room furnishings, lobby décor and much more.
“The Northern Trust Open event is one of our favorite events of the year,” said Carol Thomas, owner of Heritage 21st Century Movers. “We gather friends, family and customers and all get together at this beautiful site to cheer for our favorites.”
Opened in 1926, the Rivera Country Club is recognized as one of the best courses on the PGA Tour. Perhaps the most famous hole on the course is the 10th hole. The 315 yard par-4 hole challenges players to decide whether to challenge the narrow angled green guarded by bunkers or to lay up down the left side of the fairway.
