PGA is here this week because Canada is closed. Another course in the middle of nothing, built by people with more money than brains.

Looking at the Google Earth shot of the course - dated 3/8/21. Fazio must have been visiting at the time - there's a helicopter parked on the driving range in the photo.

This a philanthropic effort to help an underserved population to help them get into college. Soooo, there’s that and there is only one member and a couple hundred “ambassadors” that contribute to the effort. A noble effort indeed.

QUOTED  PGA is here this week because Canada is closed.

Yet there are four Canadians in the field this week.
One of the "second tier?" PGA events the week after Jack's tournament.
One of our local pros in the field Stockton's own Ricky Barnes.
Needs a good second round as he's near the cut line. +1 round one.
Noticed his shadow box at Stockton G&CC Wednesday. Go Ricky...

Congaree; knew nothing about it until the forum post. Rat-Patrols link tells the rest of the story.
Fazio that name I recognize and usually means and amazing golf course.

A billionaire with a plan to give back and raise others up. Probably in his helicopter. More useful than a yacht.
Has the dough to build a course and host a PGA event. That's life changing bankroll.
I congratulate him for the concept and wish the program continued success.
I'm interested in articles telling how these people used the program to improve their lives.
