The Quail Hollow Club is a country club and golf course located in the Quail Hollow neighborhood in Charlotte, North Carolina, United States. 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 (formerly the Wachovia 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.[5]

Quail Hollow will host the 2017 PGA Championship in August, the final major of the year.[6] The Wells Fargo Championship in 2017 was played at Eagle Point Golf Club in Wilmington, North Carolina. The club is scheduled to host the Presidents Cup in 2021.[7]
