Huge professional sporting event coming to Rochester next year


Western New York is easily one of the greatest sports regions in North America. It’s mostly the Buffalo Bills and the Buffalo Sabers.

Expanding to Rochester, the Bills and Sabers are also kings, but so are other sports like baseball with the Red Wings.

Golf is a sport that is growing in popularity in Buffalo and Rochester. There are tons of incredible public and private courses in western and central New York, and one of the most important events in professional golf will be held in Rochester in May 2023.

In case you didn’t know, the 2023 PGA Championship will be held at Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford, NY, which is a suburb outside of Rochester. It is also the suburb where the Bills hold training camp at Saint John Fisher College.

The PGA Championship has been held at Oak Hill in Rochester twice since 2003, most recently in 2013.

The event will take place from May 15 to 21.

This year’s PGA Championship takes place next week at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

If you’ve never been to a major PGA Tour tournament, I highly suggest you go. Even if you’re not a huge golf fan, it’s a fantastic atmosphere that’s hard to replicate. Augusta for The Masters is something on my bucket list.
