Building the 2023 PGA Championship, Through Sunshine and Snow Flurries

Flooring is installed for the PGA Shops at Oak Hill Country Club, site of the 2023 PGA Championship last month.

Major championship season is approaching.
There are only two months until the 2023 PGA Championship, Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester (New York), and the construction of the revered East Course at the venue is well under way.
The construction of the many viewing areas, concession stands, hospitality suites, and other amenities began last autumn. It has been through the winter in Western New York, with floor installations and tent structure installation beginning this month.

Eric Nuxol is the Operations Manager for the Championship and confirms that the Oak Hill build is on track and “all green” for a timely completion, despite some wintry weather over the past few weeks.
“When there’s snow and ice, it’s all about taking the time to make sure we’re getting the work done safely,” says Nuxol. “Ultimately, we make the best decision to ensure safety on-site, which is important to us. We built in some time to account for safety, and that’s another key reason why we did what did in the fall — it put us in the position to be successful while still taking into account some of the poor potential weather days.”
2023 PGA Championship Operations Manager Eric Nuxol says the build-out at Oak Hill is on track for completion next month.

Eric Nuxol (2023 PGA Championship Operations Manager) says Oak Hill’s build-out is on track to be completed next month.
Oak Hill will be transformed into a major championship host site by the end of next month. There is infrastructure being built all over the rolling land. Final details will be revealed, and then it is showtime: something the Rochester community eagerly anticipates.
I honestly don’t remember a Championship that created this much anticipation in the community,” says Nuxol. “Golf fans in Rochester, Western New York. . . They’re just about at a frenzy for PGA Championship to get there.”
