August also happens to be National Golf Month, how fitting that we also welcome this week over 50,000 people to Charleston & Kiawah for the 2012 PGA Championship. Today starts the practice rounds for one of the “world’s premiere sporting events” and its first visit ever to South Carolina! We have been warned that our local economy is in for a spike this week and weekend, as golfers, their families, and visitors flood in to Charleston. Hotel rooms will be non-existent, reservations at restaurants will be scarce, and what is normally a 30 minute drive out to Kiawah Ocean Course will become a 2 hour drive. To have an event like this in our city is not only a compliment, but also a chance for us to show the world Charleston, our home.
