Barclays Golf History
The Barclays golf competition started in 1967 under the name of the Westchester Classic.
Since 1976, it has been renamed several times due to the change of the main sponsor.
Beginning in 2007, the tournament's name became The Barclays, and The Barclays became one of the four "playoff tournaments" of the FedEx Cup series.
Many of the world's current top players have won the event as well, including two-time champions Ernie Els and Sergio Garcia, and four-time champion Vijay Singh.
As the first of four playoff events, The Barclays plays a leading role in the FedExCup, the season-long competition that is the centerpiece of the PGA TOUR season.
Ridgewood Country Club - FedEx Cup Golf 2014
The Ridgewood Country Club golf course was designed in 1929 and features a compelling mixture of tough terrain, wide open fairways and obstacles that will leave golfers guessing at every turn.
Perhaps the most intriguing hole on the championship course is the first, a 380-yard Par 4 with a sloping green and a large pond that sits adjacent to the fairway.
The greens are seeded with poa annua and bentgrass.
The fairways and tees are seed with poa annua, bentgrass and ryegrass. It was certified as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary in 1996.
In the last 6 years, RCC has invested almost $8 million into the restoration of its golf course.
Among the improvements have been the construction of 26 new tees, a new irrigation system, a new Greens and Grounds complex, an expansion of the pond on hole #1 on the Center nine, and the rebuilding of all the bunkers back to their original A.W. Tillinghast design.
The course includes three challenging and scenic nines known as Center, West, and East, referring to their location relative to the clubhouse.
The country club has hosted the golf tournament twice before (in 2008 and 2010), which attracts some of the world’s best players.
