As you walk among mature willows and oaks, you hear the gentle whisper of the Carmel River. Under the steady gaze of a family of deer, you find a renewed sense of focus. In the shimmering blue and gold of lupines and poppies growing wild in the meadows, you are inspired by a simple thought. In this most natural and serene setting, you game will blossom.

Wonderful surprise of a course

Excellent condition, greens were fast & about the best I have played on in years. Challenging course but 2 trees in middle of the fairway on 2 holes were one too many.

Best kept secret

Lived here over 8 years, finally played Quail today. With the exception of a few fairways that were in process of being punched, course was in great shape. The greens are some of the best on the peninsula, fast and smooth. Played in under 4 hours, great day.

The fairway was really awesome.

Everything was wonderful. Especially fairway was really good. But, carts are not allowed into the fairway due to the recent continuous rain.

Little disappointed but still memorable play

Very well kept course with superble dedign. However, didn’t get course layout info. The golf car doesn’t have GPS. Took many good pictures while laying. A memarble round of golf with nice weather.

Great experience at Quail Lodge

I'd feel more comfortable giving 4.5 stars, but it's definitely closer to 5 than to 4.

Staff was super friendly and great. Course is in terrific shape - fairways are great, greens were very soft, but pretty quick, traps were near perfect. Some of the holes were very memorable - I particularly liked both 4 and 5, an uphill par 4 with an elevated green and a long par 3 with water on the right.

The course is a moderately easy resort-style course that happens to be surrounded by beautiful scenery. Being in Carmel Valley, there's this tranquility on the golf course with mountains to one side and the ocean on the other. You can't see the ocean at all from the course though. I think the scenery is better than the actual course, but the golf layout is nice enough to still justify 5 stars. It has similar scenery to its neighbor, Carmel Valley Ranch, and I think this is the better course.

Only other downside is that the range is only about 200 yards. There weren't any irons only signs, but I certainly didn't feel comfortable taking driver there.

Looking forward to returning.
