CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The final rounds of the PGA Championship will take place Saturday and Sunday at Quail Hollow Club. Tens of thousands of people from all around the world will converge in Charlotte to watch the world's best players.
There are many different options available for you to get to the PGA Championship. If you have a parking pass, you will be shuttled directly to the gate from your designated lot. However, you can also Uber to get to the course. Uber has a lot designated for drivers and once there, you will be shuttled to the main gates. Surge pricing may be in effect depending on when you catch the shuttle.
Many patrons are using the light rail to get to and from the championship. If you have a valid PGA ticket, you can ride the light rail for free. The shuttle will pick up passengers from Sharon Road West and shuttle patrons to the front gates.
The PGA of America says they surveyed patrons twice a day to get real time feedback on how operations were going. The highest rated aspect of the tournament has been transportation.
"The good news is from Wednesday on we are sold out, we are out full capacity. We knew ahead of time that if we got Wednesday and Thursday right than Friday, Saturday, Sunday we knew it would be similar," Jason Mengel said, who is the tournament director for PGA.
The temperatures are expected to be high this weekend and tournament officials are reminding people to stay hydrated and to be aware of the risks of heat illnesses.
"Realizing that you are going to be doing a lot of walking when you are out here. The course is 7600 yards of just playing course. We have prepared with enough staff to deal with the emergencies or minor illnesses that may occur," Dr. Doug Swanson said.
There are hydration stations throughout the course and several medical tents placed strategically throughout the course.
Both rounds on Saturday and Sunday will be broadcast on WBTV.
