Can the Concession host big events?

Following the recent Ryder Cup-styled inter club match between Medinah (Ill.) Country Club and The Concession Golf Club, club ambassador Tony Jacklin said he felt the club in east Manatee could host big events in the future.
By big, he was referring to PGA Tour-level tournaments.
"I've got absolutely no doubt in my mind at all about that," Jacklin said in the beginning of March. "As I say, we've already been approached by the (PGA) Tour. They're aware of the situation here, they know about the golf course. But, it's slowly, slowly, catchy-monkey. You've got to move slowly to get the things done - Rome wasn't built in a day. And Bruce (Cassidy Sr.) is the first one to recognize that."
Jacklin would know. He's a two-time major winner having won the 1969 British Open and the 1970 U.S. Open.
Before any grand ideas take place, the club has to keep improving logistics.
Bruce Cassidy Sr. took over as new owner in late 2009, and the clubhouse was completed then.
It allowed the first-ever Ryder Cup format event for an inter club match, said Cassidy and Director of Golf Jimmy Wright.
