News reports are speculating about Chiquita moving their PGA tournament to the Club at Longview.

Size and traffic-wise, how would this compare to the annual tournament at Quail Hollow?

Would be a PITA to get to my house, not cool!

Connector roads to it are not big, so I suspect they would have to do the same thing as Quail Hollow and bus people in.

Maybe but i doubt it. When I watch the nationwide tourneys on the golf channel there never seems like many people there. i doubt that there would more than a few thousand people out there. to watch
