"He's just a legend and we like to see him play," said fan Bren Singer.
Palmer was paired with his grandson, PGA Tour pro Sam Saunders, and Johnny Harris, president of Quail Hollow Country Club.
Palmer won 62 times on the PGA Tour, including seven major championships. He helped oversee the modification of several holes at Quail Hollow in 1986.
Palmer last played a public round in Charlotte when he competed in a Champions Tour event in 2001.
