Located in San Marcos, Quail Creek Country Club offers classic central-Texas golf. The scenic Hill Country terrain provides the layout with an abundance of trees, clear blue lakes, and tall, lush grasses. The trees line the fairways and water hazards come into play on several holes. There are also bunkers and grassy waste areas carefully guarding most of the greens. The challenging course is a formidable test for even skilled golfers but four sets of tees allow players of all skill levels to adjust the round to their own handicap. In addition to the course, Quail Creek Country Club also offers a large practice range for golfers to use.

Fairways were in good shape and rough easier to play out of because of the winter conditions.

The greens were pretty rough, but again winter.

I wan to come back in late spring to play again.

I would recommend this course to the beginner golfer. This course had it’s heyday but it’s not now. Though the staff was great and the 19th hole is awesome if u can get a round for about $25 then it beats not playing.

This course used to be above average! Not sure what happened but the course is going downhill...which is too bad! Fairways are dry and hard, the greens are in horrible condition along with some of the course still in bad shape due to flooding! Not to mention the hogs that come in and tear up the course! All this and they went up in price?? Doesn’t make sense!

The course wasn't too bad, the fairways and rough were in good shape but some of the greens had some grass issues. They could do some more work on some bunkers and ponds but overall it was a good time.

The whole course was dried out. Greens were very poor and needed water badly. The rough was cow pasture like. A very disappointing experience. The highlights were a decent practice range and chipping green.

It is a fun lay out but not well maintained . Tee boxes need to be mowed , would help if fairways were mowed a little tighter, greens are extremely slow. Bring a hammer to get your tee in. For 21 dollars it is as good as you can expect .

I usually hit around 100. I played the blue tees. The fairways are wide open. However, some big trees are located at annoying places to make troubles for me that I may need to layup a shot to avoid hitting the branches. The fairway condition is not very good. Maybe because I played after a rainy Saturday. The greens are really small which is typical for courses of somw history. It really requires a lot of my short game, especially the 10-20yards chipping. The pace is good. We 2some walked 4 hours for the 6600 blue tees. Would recommend if you have a college student ID, 16.5 for walking 18 holes.

The course conditions are getting better but the greens are still lumpy and do not roll very well. For 15.00 to 20.00 it's not a bad deal.

Nice honest course with wide fairways very forgiving. Green run true and are in good shape with the exception of a lot of falling leaves on the greens. Some construction on some of the water hazzards. Would recommend.

Quail Creek is a great place to play and/or practice for the money. The staff is unbelievably nice and helpful, it is like a small family there at the course. Due to the price, the people, the course and easy pace of play I became a member. I have not encountered a single arrogant player on the course, everyone seems down to earth and out there to enjoy the game of golf. The course is well taken care of for the price you pay to play.
