VisitRochester, the official tourism site of Rochester, is still helping folks navigate and find a place to stay for two major events coming up in our area.
Buffalo Bills Training Camp begins Sunday and two weeks from today, the PGA Championship tees off at Oak Hill.
VisitRochester provides an updated list of available hotel rooms. Currently, it says there are still rooms available at certain hotels. The 95th PGA Championship is at Oak Hill in Pittsford and nearby, the Buffalo Bills will be hard at work at training camp at Saint John Fisher College. The events overlap which means hotel space is very limited. VisitRochester says 900 media personnel will be in town for the PGA alone.
"As a community we are ready, the PGA folks, the employees of the PGA have been at Oak Hill for two years. The hotels are ready, the restaurants are ready. This is going to be a very exciting time for our community. The hotel rates compared to other cities that have had PGA Championships or the Ryder Cup are not very bad at all," said Don Jeffries, President and CEO of VisitRochester.
VisitRochester will have two information booths at the PGA to help visitors with any questions.
