RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina will be the site for the 2017 PGA Championship.

A state government official with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press on Monday that the PGA will announce Tuesday at Quail Hollow Country Club in Charlotte that the course will be the site for one of golf's four majors that year.

A news conference is scheduled for 11 a.m. Tuesday.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid upstaging the PGA's announcement.

A public relations firm announced that the Tuesday morning event will feature Gov. Beverly Perdue, Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx and the club's president.

Quail Hollow has hosted what's been called the Wachovia Championship and most recently the Quail Hollow Championship as a regular PGA stop since its inception in 2003. It will be called the Wells Fargo Championship in 2011.
