Recently refurbished to the highest quality, the Quail Lodge and Golf Club has 93 spacious ranch-designed guestrooms and suites. It has delicious farm-to-fork dining options and one award-winning 18-hole championship golf course. Other features of the resort is an all-grass nine-hole putting course, an acclaimed golf academy, tennis courts, an out-door swimming pool and dedicated wellness area for fitness and relaxation massages, all affordably priced on the Californian Monterey Peninsula.
For the second year in a row, Quail Lodge & Golf Club has been awarded “Best Playing Conditions” for all of Central California by GreensKeeper (2016, 2017). Known for its playability, pristine conditions and beautifully manicured greens, the Monterey Peninsula golf course was originally designed by Robert Muir Graves in 1964 and refined in 2015 by Principle Designer Todd Eckenrode – Origins Golf Design. The recently enhanced 5,944-metre / 6,500-yard, par 71 Carmel Valley golf course is perfect for the walking golfer of all ages and skill, offering just enough bite to make it interesting.
The golf course itself is immaculately maintained and is easy to keep in such good conditions due to the geography of its location. It’s a relatively flat course, which makes it enjoyable at all times of day, especially when considering the hot Californian sun during summer. The challenges lie on the interspersed trees peppering the course at random, as well as the bunkers that are seemingly placed in the same category as the trees. Lining many fairways and surrounding many greens, the bunkers are relatively flat but can really punish your round if you land in them on the fairways. Adding to the mix are a few doglegs that are lined with large, bushy trees, as well as a few water hazards that make the course very interesting. Overall, Quail Golf Course is a pleasant course that can be enjoyed by players of every ability.
