Premier Naples Golf Course
Quail Village Golf Club is an 18-hole, par 69 golf course.
Not to be underestimated for its size, the course has three par 5’s, nine par 4’s, and six par 3’s, measuring 5000 yards from its back tees and 3800 yards from its forward tees. Water comes into play on 13 of the holes, which provides ample challenge and use of all lengths of clubs. It is definitely not an executive course.
The course was built in 1985, and was renovated in 2009. The greens are small but undulating and protected by sand bunkers. The most impressive part of the course is the outstanding condition that is maintained for its fairways and greens. The greens are rolled at a minimum of twice weekly, depending on the weather that week. It is a very walk-able course which is allowed after noon most days.
Events & Activities
Men and ladies both enjoy a wide variety of organized events. Ladies are welcome to join the 9-hole ladies’ group or the 18-hole ladies’ association. Men have several groups as well. The Wednesday men’s group is quite popular with a special competition with lunch afterward. Couples events are held monthly and headed by a different couple each month, choosing the game and meal to follow. Special golf events include member-members, member-guests, club championships, Quail Cup (Ryder Cup format), Night Golf, Charity tournaments, and a few Nine-and-Dines.
Limiting the membership allows available tee times for extra play, unlike bundled communities. There is an abundance of tee times available even with the organized play identified above. There is something for everyone.
Not many golf courses can boast of having a PGA professional who played on both the South African PGA tour and the Canadian PGA tour as their head pro, but Gary Kraft has done just that from 1986-1989. He and his associate, Chuck Lange, both give lessons and provides the best golfing experience possible to novices and more seasoned players alike. The friendliness of the pro shop staff and a fully stocked shop awaits all golfers.
