Oak Hill to host PGA Championship
The PGA Championship is coming to town May 15-21. For the 4th time this golf major will be played at the venerable Oak Hill Country Club on the celebrated East Course, one of two Donald Ross-designed layouts. Dating from 1922 East was recently restored to bring the course back to Ross’s original intent. Under the direction of course architect, Andrew Green, bunkers have been reshaped, greens have been rebuilt , a few of the massive spreading oaks have been eliminated to alleviate crowding and let light in and some holes have been rerouted. Look for this year’s winner to be the guy who drives the ball the best and and on target. Threading the path through the narrow fairways and hitting Ross’s small undulating greens is no easy feat. Note the Hill of Fame sited in a grove of oaks along the right side of the 13th green. Here golf greats are honored with bronze plaques attached to trees. This year’s Championship + tickets include complimentary food and non-alcoholic beverages at Marketplaces around the grounds. Parking with shuttle transportation is available close to the course.
