What Kind Of Impact Does The Senior PGA Championship Have On Local Economy?

There are no actual numbers to show the economic impact the Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAidmay have on the local economy, but Director Jeff Hintz says it does bring an "influx" of activity to Benton Harbor and St. Joseph during Championship week.



An example would be the venders that travel with the Championship. Big picture, Hintz says television plays a huge role in selling the area. The Championship is broadcast all over the world to over 250-million homes in the United States.



He says the PGA is here to conduct a world class golf championship, all while promoting Southwest Michigan.
