Charlotte Events – Quail Hollow Club Welcomes the World Next Week – PGA Championship 2017
The PGA Championship tees off next week (8/7-8/13) at Quail Hollow Club, putting Charlotte and North Carolina back in the national spotlight. A high-profile tourist event, for the first time in over a year, will be absent any HB2 controversy. The much anticipated, record-breaking, advanced sales reflect the prospect of a highly successful PGA Championship for 2017, putting the area’s tourism in a stronger position than pre-HB2. Both the PGA of America and local officials project that the tournament will provide an additional $100M to the Charlotte economy.
Over the past 20 years, Quail Hollow Club has transformed from a quiet to non-existent PGA tour stop, to now, one of the PGA’s major championship events – in fact, one of the top four. The Wachovia Championship (now known as the Wells Fargo Championship) started in 2003 with galleries as large as 35,000.
The Quail Hollow Club has set the bar for the elite in PGA championship events, becoming a model for other tournaments. Admired for its hospitality and perks for players, caddies and guests, from Mercedes-Benz courtesy cars to locker room laundry service, the Quail Hollow Club does hosting right.
We hope you’ll be enjoying this event in Charlotte this week, at least one day of it! For more information on the tournament, running August 7th through 13th, visit the PGA spectator information page here. Pre-tournament shops grand-opening is being held this weekend (details here).
PARKING FOR THE TOURNAMENT
***Please note – You have many parking options for the tournament so, be sure to PLAN AHEAD! You will note in my neighborhood and several other SouthPark neighborhoods surrounding the course, NO PARKING signs are posted. Each and every year, tournament-goers ignore the signs, leave for the tournament for the day, only to find their cars towed. Don’t fall prey to quickly parking in front of a residential home, leaving your car and walking to the tournament. Your car will be towed – that’s a guarantee!
You may purchase parking passes here.
