I attended Day 1&2. Liberty Hill is a brutal walk, and Monday's cold damp weather made for a tough start for some of the competitors. I liked some of the bunkering at Liberty Hill.  I only saw the holes around the clubhouse at Torresdale. Both courses were in better shape than two of the Philly blue bloods I also visited over the past week.


The PGAWorks event seemed well supported by the Union League members and PGA local section. Some of the future sites will be familiar names to anyone who follows PGA Championships.


Great party at the Union League's downtown clubhouse on Saturday night. The band from Miles College was A++.

I heard that Union League @ Torresdale was going to be restored/renovated soon? They weren't sure who it was... Tyler Rae? Andrew Green? Couldn't find anything via the Search on this site.


And, didn't it recently just go through some work... by Stephen Kay?

I don't know any other details or rumors... and frankly I think it's just the latter. But am curious if you hear of anything. Thanks!
