At TruGreen, we take pride in our ability to create stunning, green outdoor spaces for people so they can spend more time outside. In pursuit of this mission, our sponsorship with the PGA TOUR was a natural fit. Both PGA TOUR and TruGreen rely heavily on impeccable agronomic practices to deliver the best living and playing conditions.
As the Official Lawn Care Treatment Provider of the PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR Champions and TPC Network, we are actively looking forward to our ongoing sponsorship over the next few years.

First Tee College Scholarship Program
In October of 2020, TruGreen announced its support of the First Tee College Scholarship Program. First Tee is a youth development organization that uses golf as a catalyst for personal growth. As a Trustee, TruGreen helped to expand the scholarship program to include alumni pursuing careers in agronomy, plant science and other science-based professions.
To accomplish this, our expert associates at TruGreen serve as mentors to students in the program. Through professional development and educational sessions, our associates share industry knowledge and science-based expertise with the students. The program also provides scholarships up to $5,000 per year for four years, and scholars will receive assistance with internships and full-time employment placement post-graduation.
The TruGreen Backyard
In an effort to provide a family-friendly atmosphere with interactive games and refreshments at select PGA TOUR events, we were thrilled to develop The TruGreen Backyard and engage with fans. The TruGreen Backyard was our ode to outdoor living. We wanted to create an environment that was perfect for relaxing without missing out on the PGA TOUR action.
The TruGreen Backyard encapsulates the feeling of being in your dream backyard and includes several shaded seating areas, outdoor games dispersed among conversational seating, a designated family area complete with a playset and sandbox, comfortable seating areas throughout and so much more.
This immersive experience debuted at the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational and is a staple of our sponsorship of the PGA TOUR.
Additionally, it is a featured fan experience at the 2022 Honda Classic. We invite you to join us for food and drinks as you take in the views of the iconic Bear Trap. The TruGreen Backyard is perfectly located between the 11th and 17th holes and has direct visibility of the video wall with full tournament coverage allowing you to feel right at home without missing the action.
