James Holland owns a home directly across the street from the Highland Meadows Golf Club, site of this week's LPGA Marathon Classic. Since 1989 he has charged people to park on his property the week of the tournament. "We get about 60 cars in here at a time," Mr. Holland said. Holland plans to use the money he makes this week to go on vacation with his wife. "We're going to fly to Las vegas, stay overnight and then rent a car and drive to the Grand Canyon and then to Utah to the Bryce Canyon and the Arches," Mr. Holland said.
Sylvania United Church of Christ, located about two blocks from the main entrance to Highland Meadows, has room for about 500 cars on its property. Jeff Crandell explains how the church uses the parking fees. "This is our 24th year doing parking for the LPGA; this is a fundraiser that helps us pay for some of our outreach programs," Mr. Crandell said.
