Why wouldn’t the Wells Fargo Championship stay in Charlotte that year at another golf course?

The PGA TOUR, Wells Fargo and Champions For Education (the tournament host organization) looked at several areas in Charlotte and other nearby cities. Because of several factors all three parties concluded this region of North Carolina would be a perfect fit for one year.

And, the TOUR event has moved to another venue within the region with great success.

Has there ever been a PGA TOUR event in Wilmington?
