Wells Fargo Championship Golf Tournament in New Hanover County

New Hanover County hosted the Wells Fargo Championship at Eagle Point Golf Club the week of May 1-7, bringing thousands of visitors to our community.

In preparation for this large event, New Hanover County employees worked for more than a year to provide the necessary public safety support for the Wells Fargo Championship. They established a Unified Incident Command staffed with experts from the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office, New Hanover County Fire Rescue, New Hanover County Emergency Management/911, and New Hanover Regional EMS to provide public safety services to the community. This coordinated effort ensured that spectators, volunteers, golfers, workers, and area residents were safe, healthy, and secure during the tournament.

We are grateful for their dedication to our community during the Wells Fargo Championship, and their public service every day in our county. And we appreciate the entire community for wholeheartedly embracing the Wells Fargo Championship and this opportunity to showcase New Hanover County!
