May 1 - 7, 2017 Wells Fargo Golf, a staple in the Professional Golf Association, returns to NC for their coveted championship match - only this time, much closer to the coast. The Wells Fargo Championship will be held at Eagle Point Golf Club during the entire first week of May. Eagle Point is in the top 100 courses in America and now has the opportunity to challenge the world's best golfers. The likes of Rickie Fowler, Justin Spieth, Rory McIlroy, and many other names of the sport, will be trekking to our very own Port City in search of birdies, ideal spring weather and, of course, to steal the title from current champion James Hahn.

Official practice for athletes begins on Wednesday, May 3rd, followed by four days of match play to conclude on Sunday, May 7th, ultimately crowning the Wells Fargo Champion. However, with the businesses of Wilmington and surrounding areas growing to meet the needs of area residents, all are preparing for a grand week and the anticipation of over 30,000 spectators er day at the tournament. Stretching from Porter's Neck to Wrightsville Beach, there will be plenty to experience for players and visitors beside the greens at Eagle Point - to maximize the week-long venture, just have a gander at our Wilmington area restaurants, things to do, and lodging

Wilmington and golf fans across the country are eager to tune into the Wells Fargo Championship, but for those attending the event, what better locale than a beach community chocked full of nightlife, eateries, and beautiful outdoor landscapes. The buzz in town is lively, and talk of crossing paths with the greats of the sport is evident - who knows, if you miss Phil Mickelson on the course, you may see him perusing the beach, soaking in Wilmington's natural splendor. 

Tickets can be found on the event site - Wells Fargo Championship

North Carolinians look forward to the tournament, and Wilmington residents anticipate the largest sporting event to hit our hometown in decades.
