Here's how to book:

Shuttle service (for guests of the Kahler hotels): Complimentary airport shuttle service is available for Championships attendees flying into Rochester International Airport and staying at the Kahler Grand Hotel or Kahler Inn and Suites. This complimentary service is only available at certain times, so be sure to book your arrival and departure within the specified window to take advantage:

  • Arrivals (airport to hotel shuttle): Thursday, noon to 9pm and Friday, 8am to 11am
  • Departures (hotel to airport shuttle): Sunday, noon to 8pm
