Golf

The Course and the Clubhouse are located at 3700 Gleneagles Road in Charlotte, NC. Quail Hollow Club has what is considered by many to be one of the finest courses in the United States.

The course was originally designed by famed golf course architect George Cobb in 1961 to capture the beauty as well as challenging terrain of the Piedmont region. In the intervening years, the course has undergone a series of improvements, including modifications to several holes by Arnold Palmer in 1986, and a redesign by Tom Fazio in 1997.

The par four, 14th is a dogleg left that can be driven with a good tee shot. It measures 346 yards from the championship tees. A 15 acre lake frames the left side of the hole and the rough on that side slopes down to the water. The narrow landing area measures about 27 yards across and is guarded with two bunkers on each side. The two tiered green is long and narrow with about 7,100 square feet of putting surface. Two more bunkers guard the left front and middle of the green, and a collection area waits just off the right front of the green for short approach shots hit off line, or almost perfect drives. The area immediately left of the green slopes severely down to the lake, so shots hit left have a very good chance of ending up in the hazard.

The 17th hole is a 221-yard par three over water. A rock wall rings this part of the lake and borders the left and front of the green. The tee shot must carry the water hazard, and a bunker that protects the center. The 6,500-square-foot green is undulated, and on the left side there is only six feet between the edge of the putting surface and water hazard. On the right lies a closely mown collection area for errant shots. The water will be the collection area on the left.

Champions Park

Champions Park, built in 2004, is situated between the ninth and tenth fairways and honors those who have won professional tournaments at Quail Hollow. Kemper winners are named on the left and World Seniors victors on the right of a rock structure located in a grove of trees. On a massive, 20-foot high fireplace in the center, the winners of the Wells Fargo are honored with gold plaques. A stone building on the far end serves as a halfway house for most of the year and a popular concession stands during the tournament, with nearby tables for eating.
