Introducing the new “Green Mile Village”

Food, Beverage and Fun at the Green Mile Village on 16 Fairway

The champion of the Wells Fargo Championship will make their stand and stake their claim on The Green Mile. The final three holes (16, 17 & 18) are the most formidable of the newly renovated course at Quail Hollow, combining to form one of the most magnificent and menacing finishes on the PGA TOUR. The Championship has capitalized on the most recent design changes of the celebrated course and it has created a new area for our patrons; The Green Mile Village.

The Green Mile Village at 16 Fairway will feature a variety of patron amenities including specialty foods & beverage, the Wells Fargo Golf Experience, the Mercedes-Benz Performance Center and a second Merchandise Tent. All of which is sure to become an annual destination for our attendees.

Available in the Green Mile Village are full bar and beverage services featuring the “Tee Time” Cocktail (spiked iced tea and lemonade) Bloody Mary’s and Margaritas.

The diverse menu includes:

  • The Noodle Factory serving Wok-finished Yakisoba Noodles tossed with vegetables and chicken and a myriad of condiments so you can finish it just the way you like it.
  • Brussel’s Crepes featuring both Savory and Sweet-filled Crepes made before your eyes.
  • Wells Fargo’s own Famous Fairway Barbecue featuring Brisket, Pork, Chicken and Ribs.
  • Reppicci’s Real Italian serving Italian Ice with Hand-Scooped Gelato.
  • And of course, all your traditional concessions favorites.
