First time at a major and hate parking miles away and shuttling in, anyone familiar with the area surrounding Oak Hill? Looks like there are some residential streets and a college very close by, wondering what the parking availability will look like...

I live 2 miles away and I still don't know much of anything useful.

There is a lot of commercial plaza parking on the southwest side but I don't think there are any entrances over there.

The ritzy immediate area is not on the way to anywhere I normally go. I may take a drive-by to look at street parking.

I wouldn't have much hope for the college parking. I'd expect it to be reserved, closed or high-dollar.

I *think* the official parking is at Monroe Community College. That is where it was the last two years for the LPGA.

I highly recommend parking there and catching the bus over to the course. Minimal waiting (buses are cycling through regularly) and you get dropped off right at the entrance. At least for the LPGA, driving near the course was obnoxious and I can't imagine it would be better for the PGA.


Edit: Forgot to note, the MCC parking and bus is free, while parking 'close' in someone's lawn will run $20 or $30 (maybe more, since that was at the LPGA)

Like greenglobs said, parking is away from the event and a bus will take you in. Worked out very well in 2003.

Park in the official lots and shuttle in. Much faster and easier in the end.

From the spectator guide.

Quote

There is no PGA-sanctioned public parking near Oak[/size]
Hill Country Club. Stopping on surrounding roadways

is not permitted. Local streets will be designated as “No

Parking/Tow Away Zones” or “Resident Parking Only”.

Cars that are illegally parked in these areas will be issued


a fine or towed

Given the wealth in the area I'm not surprised they bring in the cops to keep the riff-raff out.
The whole Fascist tone of the guide makes up my mind not to bother going.

fascist tone? if they did not tell you in clear terms what is permitted and what the consequences are to not comply, there would be complaints of vagueness. can't please everyone.

I would NOT be shocked to see locals offering their lawns as parking spots for 20 bucks + / car.  However this is a fairly high end area so you might find NO parking locally (they wouldn't want to mess up their lawns after all).

Just park at MCC (signage will be abundant) and catch a shuttle.  As mentioned they really do run all of the time.  And this isn't the first time Rochester has had an event - we have it down pretty well at this point :)

They've actually got a second spectator lot at Rochester Tech Park just off 390.

There is a policy posted about who should go where based on home zip code.
Looks like out of area folks are supposed to go to Tech Park.

If they tell people who arrive at one they must drive to the other there should be riots.

I would imagine parking instructions were sent with tickets which are sold out except for thurs (and practice days)

When I went to the senior major 20 years ago they parked us on the west course rough which was great.
I heard the corporate hooplah is so huge now it has usurped that entire space.
