PITTSFORD, N.Y. (WROC) — Come the start of the PGA Championship week May 15, hundreds of thousands are expected in and around the town and village of Pittsford. To help bolster the businesses there, the Pittsford Town, Village, and Chamber of Commerce put together a “PGA Passport” program.

If you shop at, get a service, or dine at six participating businesses — and get a stamp — you are eligible to win a prize. Passports also allow you to get discounts at some of those businesses.

The passport program runs May 8-21. Drawing for the prizes will take place over Facebook Live May 28.

Passports can be picked up at the over two dozen businesses in the village and the town that are participating. One of the businesses participating is in the neighboring town of East Rochester.

“(You can) go the restaurant, go to the hair salon, there’s a variety of things you can go, and that’s why it works very well for residents and for visitors,” said Pittsford Village Mayor Alysa Plummer over a Zoom on Wednesday.

According to the Pittsford Chamber of Commerce, the passport will also be available to print out at their website.
