“The addition of PGA TOUR Grill to CMH is very exciting as we reflect on several dining developments that we are proud to bring to travelers with the support of our partners at the Columbus Regional Airport Authority,” said HMSHost Vice President of Business Development Kent Vanden Oever. “HMSHost is delighted to give Columbus travelers this new restaurant; PGA TOUR Grill speaks to the region and offers something for everyone with a comfortable ambiance and great food.”

PGA TOUR Grill is HMSHost’s leading sports dining concept for modern diners, making it a great fit for Columbus’ airport with a true sense of the sporting spirit of the Columbus region. PGA TOUR Grill’s motto “Eat Smarter, Play Harder” is reflected in the menu with food and beverages designed to provide energy to hit the links later on.
