BENTON HARBOR, Mich.--- The Senior PGA Championship has drawn thousands of spectators to Harbor Shores.
And the influx of people has business booming at one restaurant with a strategic location.
Tucked between holes thirteen and fourteen is a family run burger and Mexican food joint, and they are making major profits off this week's event.
“It's been tremendous, it's been a lot of fun, we enjoy it,” said John Howe, whose parents own the restaurant. “We look forward to it, ever since two years ago when it came through in 2012. It's obviously a huge influx of new customers. New people get to enjoy this place and it's a lot of fun. It's a lot of work but people seem to really enjoy it.”
Hungry golfers and their fans have been stopping in for, what some say, are the best burgers in the region.
During the summer months golfers will stop in between holes for a snack or a few drinks.
“They like it, it’s a change of pace,” said Howe. “It’s not something you find on many golf courses, having a tavern in the middle.”
With an outdoor tented eating area it's an ideal pit stop along the green.
The Howe family runs the restaurant and has been looking forward to cooking up enough food for an army since the Senior PGA Championship was in town two years ago.
And it's not just the club house, the North Shore Inn dishes up good food.
The Senior PGA Championship is sponsored by KitchenAid, and they served up celebrity chefs Gail Simmons and Kelli Senyei as well today.
