Homeowners owners near the Merion Golf Club in Ardmore Pennsylvania are making an easy buck off the U.S. Open Golf Championship. Craigslist ads have private parking at a home within walking distance of the course at $500 for the duration of the event. The golf club offers little parking on site but provides off site parking and a shuttle for spectators. Some residents are offering their homes for rent, others are advertising parking and meals
I have no idea what the parking industry thinks of these kinds of parking “operations,” but I say “nice work.” If you can’t rent out your driveway for a few days and make a sweet chunk of money what’s the use of being an American?
