The PGA Championship has world class greens and plenty of ways to go green.

All around the course at Oak Hill Country Club are recycling bins for fans to utilize.  It's just one way the PGA of America is helping to reduce the carbon footprint of the golf tournament.

In the Media Center all of the thousands of pages of paper materials are being recycled as well.

To help replenish the environment, the PGA of America sponsored a tree planting at Rothfuss Park in Penfield.  The trees are one way to ensure that long after the last putt falls and the winner hoists the Wanamaker Trophy, the 2013 PGA Championship will be remembered for its major thrills and for its enduring legacy for the local environment.
