Quail West’s world-class golf program centers around not one but two extraordinary 18-hole courses. Designed by Arthur Hills, ASGCA, 36 holes take advantage of the natural waterways and preserves to create a uniquely challenging golf experience.
Quail West’s program also features a full-service, state-of-the-art practice facility with expert teaching staff. The private Grand Clubhouse serves as a home base for golfers and residents, with lavish men and women’s locker rooms, pro shops, three dining venues, indoor pool, fitness center, spa and salon. And at the end of the Preserve course is the 19th Hole Sunset Bar, where patrons relax after a round while taking in views of the 18th green. One of Southwest Florida’s most exclusive clubs, Quail West’s courses, facilities and services are shared by only six hundred members.
The 7,041 yard Lakes Course offers wide-open vistas across a system of shimmering lakes. The layout is fairly open and has a links quality to it, although there are numerous water hazards and marsh areas to negotiate. In true Hills fashion, there are a variety of bunkers to avoid and undulating greens that can make holing out in regulation a challenge.
The Preserve plays to 6,841 yards from the back tees and takes the golfer on a meandering journey through verdant woodland areas. It is easy to get distracted by the stunning beauty of this course, particularly on the signature par three second hole where an expansive bed of flowers provides a striking display of color.
