    Detroit Rocket Mortgage Tournament and Parking?

    I am thinking of going to this tournament but I can't find any info on parking for this event. Do they expect us to buy tickets without knowing where parking it will be or the cost? I've contacted the directors twice and they still don't have anything lined up, and the tournament is only a few weeks away. Isn't that unusual?

    Iím originally from Detroit suburbs. I currently live in Northern Virginia. Iím planning on coming in and dropping my car off at my sisters house in Ferndale. Then Iím just gonna Uber down. The parking in Detroit is nightmare.

    Havenít heard anything yet but havenít been laying much attention. From my limited experience with PGA events they will have something figured out with shuttles or something. Parking in Detroit is a nightmare

    Iíll second this. Thereíll probably be a shuttle service offered to and from. The Memorial is the only tournament Iíve attended and they had several spots where you could park 10 or so miles offsite and be shuttled in. Most courses, even set up for tour events, arenít equipped to park that many cars nearby. Iím sure there are some that are.

    It would be slightly concerning to be this close to it and not know what the plans are.

    I doubt it, that is actually cheap for parking around here. Tigers and lions games start at $30 usually and go up from there depending on where you park and how close you are to the stadiums. People will pay it they have no choice
