The Quail Hollow Club is a country club and golf course located in the Quail Hollow neighborhood in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. It is a private member club, founded by James J. Harris on April 13, 1959. The club hosted the Kemper Open from 1969 through 1979, the PaineWebber Invitational from 1983 through 1989, and has hosted the Wells Fargo Championship since it debuted in 2003.
The course was originally designed by 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 underwent a series of improvements, including modifications of several holes by Arnold Palmer in 1986, and a redesign by Tom Fazio in 1997 and 2003.
After the third round of the 2010 Quail Hollow Championship, current Masters champion Phil Mickelson made comments extremely critical of the green design at the Quail Hollow Club. He stated “As beautifully designed as this golf course is tee-to-green, the greens are by far the worst-designed greens we play on tour…I would say that 18 would be the worst green that we have on tour – except that it’s not even the worst on this golf course.
Quail Hollow will host the PGA Championship, the final men’s major of the year, in 2017.

Il campo è situato nel quartiere di Quail Hollow a Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. Si tratta di un club privato, fondato da James J. Harris il 13 aprile 1959.
Il corso è stato originariamente progettato dall’ architetto George Cobb nel 1961 . Negli anni successivi, ha subito una serie di miglioramenti, tra cui alcune modifiche a diverse buche per mano di Arnold Palmer nel 1986, e una riprogettazione da Tom Fazio, nel 1997 e nel 2003.
Dopo il terzo round nel 2010, Phil Mickelson ha fatto commenti estremamente critici , ha affermato: “Per quanto sia ben progettato, a suo a parere …sarebbe il peggior campo che abbiamo in tour – salvo che non è nemmeno il peggiore di altri campi di golf, 🙁 il Quail Hollow ospiterà il PGA Championship, nel 2017.
