With an expected buildout of 500,000 square feet, the Presidents Cup will provide a spectator experience unlike any we’ve seen at previous Quail Hollow tournaments.

What’s happening: Construction is underway at Quail Hollow Club with the goal of rerouting the original course and activating the entire property in new and innovative ways.

  • The buildout started in April and is expected to take a total of 25 weeks to complete.

Why it matters: Charlotte will be on a global stage. And the Presidents Cup wants to highlight local experiences during the big show.

  • Context: The Presidents Cup was originally scheduled for fall 2021, but will now be played Sept. 19-25.

What to expect: Executive Director Adam Sperling tells Axios that the tournament will have a mix of spectator and culinary experiences that highlight Charlotte.

  • Mini NoDa and South End sections will be located behind the fourth and fourteenth holes respectively, each with its own lineup of food vendors.
