The upcoming Senior PGA Championship at Trump National Golf Club in Loudoun County is expected to bring as many as 50,000 visitors to the county, according to event organizers. In anticipation of the nationally televised golf tournament scheduled for May 23-28, 2017, here are three things residents should know: 

1. Know the Parking Restrictions
  • There will be no general parking at the tournament site at 20391 Lowes Island Boulevard or in the surrounding neighborhood, so those attending should plan to park at the purple economy lot at Dulles Airport, where parking for the tournament will be free. The PGA will provide shuttle buses from the lot to the golf course. The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office has more information about the parking restrictions in this news release.
2. Anticipate Increased Traffic in the Area
  • Residents should be aware of the potential for increased road congestion in the area due to event-related traffic, including shuttle buses. To stay informed about road closures and traffic-related incidents, sign up for the “Loudoun Traffic and Road Closures” category of Alert Loudoun. Subscribers to Alert Loudoun can customize how they receive information – by text, email and/or mobile app. Register now at www.loudoun.gov/alert
3. Know What to Do if You Are Planning to Attend or Volunteer 
  • Anyone planning to attend the tournament should be aware of increased security at the golf course and the rules for spectators to follow. More information, including a guide for spectators, is online at www.pga.com/seniorpga

  • Volunteers will play a large role in the Senior PGA Championship. Information about volunteer opportunities is online at www.pga.com/seniorpga.  
Earlier this month, the Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution commending the Professional Golfers’ Association for holding the senior men’s championship in Loudoun, citing an anticipated economic impact of the six-day event of between $25 and $35 million. The Board is shown in the photo above with PGA Senior Championship officials and the Alfred S. Bourne trophy, which is given to the winner of the tournament.  A larger version of the photo is available here.
