In the past three months, hundreds of workers have built a “mini-town” called Caves Valley for the tournament. It is the first time in nearly 60 years that the PGA tour has taken place in Baltimore.
The organizers said it was a great selection for the tournament.
“There are many factors that will influence the decision of this magnitude to bring this championship to a golf course like this. First of all, the golf course is designed to test the best 70 players in the world and the answer is yes. ”

The work it took to get it here will pay off for the Baltimore area and help many businesses outside of the golf courses.
“They know that $ 35 million to $ 40 million will be direct spending between Baltimore City and Baltimore County, our restaurants and hotels, pubs and bars. I mean, they’re just going to … this is going to be a great week for Baltimore.”
The proceeds from ticket sales and concessions all go to a caddy, including some from Baltimore.
“Not many people know that you are attending a PGA Tour event. All proceeds go to charities, which we happen to benefit from the Evans Scholars Foundation, the only BMW Championship charity that awards college scholarships to well-deserved caddies in the area. ”
