Is Oak Hill Ready For The PGA Championship?

- Training marshals is just one of the thousands of tasks on the oak hill country club "to-do" list.
Where are they just days before the PGA Championship?

The General Chairman of the PGA, Marty Glavin and Manager of Golf Courses and Grounds, Jeff Corcoran are leading the charge on two fronts. Marty off the golf course, Jeff on it.

"What we're doing now is really tightening the screws, the fine details, getting the green speeds where we want them,” Jeff explains.

A city within a city has been built at Oak Hill. For the next week it'll be home to 3,800 volunteers and more than 200,000 visitors.

"We'll be having spectators from all 50 states and i believe we're going to have spectators from 46 different countries," says Marty...."I Think this time around we had se new venues and priced it to our market. And they went fast."

Glavin says everything is on track.
The weather is the only thing you can't control.

"I think that really selfishly for a lot of different reasons we hope there is no rain. More rain equals more damage, more restoration work."

That's because another project begins when the tournament ends.

"People don't realize that after the trophy is awarded and there is a champion, you know after the tournament we have to go through the process of actually restoring oak hill and getting the product back for our membership,” adds Jeff.

It's been hectic, but a lot of fun for everyone involved.

The two are excited for you to come out to Oak Hill and enjoy all their hard work.
