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

Expanding to Rochester, the Bills and Sabres are also kings, but so is other sports such as baseball with the Red Wings.

One sport that is growing in popularity in both Buffalo and Rochester is golf. There are tons of amazing public and private courses in Western and Central New York, and one of the most important events in pro golf is coming to Rochester in May of 2023.

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

The PGA Championship has been to Oak Hill in Rochester twice since 2003, with the last time being back in 2013.

The event will take place between May 15th and May 21st.

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

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