Jacobsen Supports Charlotte’s Wachovia Championship
Jacobsen, a Textron Inc. company, rolled out the green carpet on its home turf recently as the Wachovia Championship brought the PGA TOUR to Charlotte, N.C., headquarters for the equipment company celebrating its 85th year of service in the turf industry.
Not only was Jacobsen the official hospitality partner of the Wachovia Championship, but its turf maintenance equipment was used exclusively on all areas of the Quail Hollow Club golf course, where the tournament was played.
Quail Hollow was originally designed by golf course architect George Cobb in 1961. It's undergone a series of improvements, including modifications of several holes by Arnold Palmer in 1986, and a redesign by Tom Fazio in 1997 and 2003. The private member club hosted the Kemper Open from 1969 to 1979, and has more recently been the site of a Senior PGA TOUR event hosted by club member Arnold Palmer. The Wachovia Championship originated at Quail Hollow in 2003.
This is the fourth year that Jacobsen is supporting the tournament which offers a $6 million purse and raises money for Teach For America, the Championship's primary charity.
