Irish Creek To Host PGA Tour Qualifying Event

It's nice to see that a first stage qualifier for the PGA Tour will be played at The Club at Irish Creek in Kannapolis in October, rekindling the club's long relationship with the Q-school process.

The event will be played Oct. 18-22 at the popular layout redesigned by Davis Love III and his brother, Mark, a couple of years ago.

Long-time PGA Tour rules official Mark Russell, a Kannapolis native, was instrumental in bringing the qualifying event back to the club.

Irish Creek will also host the North Carolina Open June 7-10, one of the top Carolinas PGA events of the year. Additionally, the Irish Creek Collegiate Classic will be played April 2-4 with Davidson, Belmont Abbey and Charlotte hosting the event.
