The Jim and Tabitha Furyk Foundation spent notable funds for upgrades at the Timuquana Country Club in Jacksonville in advance of the Constellation Energy Furyk & Friends tournament.

The Oct. 3-9 tournament, named after Ponte Vedra Beach pro golfer Jim Furyk, is a PGA Champions Tour event and part of the Charles Schwab Cup series.

The Furyk Foundation spent $1.5 million to erect tents to house VIP guests and scaffolding and foundations for observation and television coverage, according to building permits approved by the city.

Clear Constructors LLC is the contractor that erected the tents and scaffolding.
