With only a few days left before thousands of visitors arrive for the international Ryder Cup golf tournament, many area towns are in high gear making final preparations.
Addison, Bloomingdale, Roselle, Wood Dale, Glendale Heights and Itasca dubbed themselves “host towns” for the tournament, which runs Sept. 25-30 at the Medinah Country Club in unincorporated Medinah. Now, they are finishing more than a year’s worth of preparations to make their communities look their best with an eye toward welcoming visitors and attracting tourist dollars.
In Bloomingdale this week, workers were planting flowers near banners that herald the Ryder Cup. All six host towns will have similar banners on display throughout next week.
Many municipalities also are encouraging area businesses to offer promotions and discounts timed with the tournament.
