PONTE VEDRA, Fla. -- Fans headed out to TPC Sawgrass for THE PLAYERS now have some healthier food options to choose from. The food tents will still provide staple food items, but different dietary restrictions are being accounted for.
New this year, fans who have gluten sensitivities or are watching the amount of gluten they intake can choose from a gluten free menu.
There are nine healthier options for hungry spectators to pick. One of them includes a chicken salad sandwich made with chick peas instead of chicken. Healthier food options, like a vegetarian avocado sandwich, are now available.
Golf is a healthy sport and the caterers wanted to add more food to their menus to accompany healthy lifestyles.
"There's a growing need for people with dietary needs that they may have with the gluten intolerance, or generally people who don't want to have a big old Nathan's Famous hot dog every time they come to a sporting event. So we've really expanded the options for those types of crowds," says Todd Hanson with Prom Catering.
The caterers start planning their menus in the winter.
