This is one of my favorite local courses. It's a beautiful layout with a multitude of hole arrangements. The greens were lightning fast and very challenging...which I enjoy. Highly recommend this course!

the staff at best was mediocre, until we had to require the assistance of the course, that's when it went in the wrong direction. without elaborating I was just stymied when the pro came out to the course and could not address the issues. it would have been nice to see a ranger to help prevent the situation. I have friends who were members last year and are not this, and probably I/we won't be back.

This is a $40-$45 green fee course at most. I paid via Hot Deal which made it worth it. Course layout is decent. Greens were rough but Spring. The four of us would not return even with Hot Deal. Once was enough. Better options available.

Staff had no real personality. Not bad not good.

We stay in GR for a week on a golf trip. This was one of many excellent courses we played. While playing another course with a local, he highly recommended we play here. We were not disappointed. Course was in great shape though I here there was lack of rain for a while. Couldn't tell by the course conditions. The greens were in great shape and rolled true.

Four of us played the course for the first time. It was over an hours drive but all of us thought it was worth it. The greens were very fast and well conditioned for a public course. While the course was challenging the greens made it tough. A lot of holes were visually deceiving but as long as you hit to the poles there was plenty of room. Overall the course was in good condition but a little over watered so there was little roll. We all liked the layout.

First time to play here and loved it. Had been there about 5-6 years ago for a wedding so knew about it but just got around to playing it. Course was in fabulous condition and love the layout. Nothing bad to say about the course. We did play behind a 5-some for about 5 holes which was annoying.

Great chicken sandwich after we played. I'll be back.

If you like perfect greens, secluded holes, and a convenient location, you should check out Quail Ridge. This course is in my top 5 favorite courses, right up there with Pilgrims Run, Harbor Shores, and Stonegate. If you enjoy any of those courses and haven't played Quail Ridge, you're missing out!

It's hard for me to say anything negative about one of my favorite courses, but Quail does have one feature that I don't love. The first two par 5s are point and shoot golf. I don't want to complain too much, but when an architect forces you to play a par 5 as a three shot hole, it takes a little fun out of the game. I wouldn't mind if there was just one of those forced 3 shotters, but there are TWO!

Regardless of that, I love the course. The greens are phenomenal and the course is always maintained very well.

I have played there when dry and in good condition and it is a very nice course. The quality is down a little bit right now because it is early and because it was very wet but I highly recommend in the summer. The pace of play is probably the one thing I would change if I could. Other than that it is great quality. Just a bit pricey.

Being early in the 2017 season, the course was not in the best shape. Greens and fairways were in fair condition and the bunkers were generally in poor condition. The course was also very wet and cart path only made the pace of play extremely slow. Overall value was pretty good, however.
