After long wait, Charlotte gets PGA Championship

The PGA of America has announced it will hold the 2017 PGA

Championship at the old-style course at Quail Hollow Club.

It will mark the third time the PGA will be in North Carolina,

and the first for the state’s largest city. The event will draw

about 50,000 a people a day and tens of millions of dollars in

economic impact.

Quail Hollow has hosted a PGA Tour event since 2003, but its

future is uncertain once the title sponsor deal ends in 2014.

Harris says the event definitely won’t be held in 2016 or 2017 as

they prepare the course for the PGA.
