Also known to have one of the tougher finishes on the tour with holes 16, 17, and 18 being challenging. This stretch is commonly known as the “Green Mile”. Players have seemed to always enjoy staying in Charlotte with all it’s southern charm. The city extends a warm welcome to players who usually reside at some of the areas finest hotels during the event.
Charlotte’s 2017 PGA Championship
The 2017 PGA Championship is one of golf’s four major championships. With this being Charlotte’s first time hosting, accommodations are a little different. Players coming to Charlotte for the tournament are looking for privacy & convenience. With the tournament being a little grander scale, they want some of the amenities they might find at home and a place to really relax. Chances are these players will be traveling with a little bigger entourage – family, friends, their trainers, nutritionists, personal chefs – than usual. You name them and they might be here with the players. While the accommodations and needs are different for each player, some of the requests have included fitness equipment and pools for their kids. Players started leasing the homes this spring with The Bell Team.
