The tournament will be held May 3-9 at south Charlotte's Quail Hollow Club. The 2020 event was canceled by the COVID-19 pandemic. Quail Hollow was originally scheduled to host the Presidents Cup in 2021, but that has been pushed back to 2022 with the Wells Fargo Championship returning this year.

Other safety measures include touchless payment options and increased sanitation stations. According to tournament guidelines, player autographs will not be allowed this year. 

“We look forward to safely bringing this annual event back to our community and continue the tournament’s legacy of being an integral part of the fabric of Charlotte and the surrounding areas,” said Johno Harris, General Chairman of the Wells Fargo Championship.

Tickets for the general public go on sale Monday, April 5 at 10:00 a.m.
