QUAIL HOLLOW COUNTRY CLUB (440)350-3500
Ohio Golf Course Review
Nestled among 700 acres of wooded countryside, Quail Hollow Country Club is located 30 miles east of Cleveland. Year round recreational activities are available including golf, fitness center, outdoor pools, a variety of social functions and summer activities for the kids and much more. Two 18-hole championship courses offer challenging golf for all skill levels. The Weiskopf/Morrish Course, which opened in May 1996 is a links style 6,900-yard, par 71 course which is ranked in the "Top 100 Courses You Can Play" by Golf Magazine. The Devlin/Von Hagge, home of the Cleveland PGA's Buy.Com Tour, is a 6,700-yard par 71 course.
The beautiful clubhouse features a pro shop, indoor and outdoor dinning, a patio with a great view of the 18th holes of both golf courses, locker rooms and lounges, and an outdoor swimming pool. The pro shop is well stocked with all major brands of equipment and clothing, and custom club fitting, re-gripping, and repair services are available. Practice facilities include a targeted range with mats and grass tee stations, and a large putting green.
There are five sets of tee boxes to choose from with distances and slopes measuring 6707 yards/133 slope, 6233 yards/ 129 slope, 5892 yards/125 slope, 5066 yards with a slope of 116 for men and 129 for woman, and 4366 with a slope of 121 for woman. The front nine hole layout is symetrical with three par 3's, three par 4's, and three par 5's. The back nine plays 240 yards shorter and only features one par 5 and 2 par 3's.
The course is marked by disks in the middle of the fairway that are measured from 100, 150, and 200 yards to the center of the green as well as sprinkler heads on all par fours and fives. Color coded flags indicate front, middle, and back hole locations. Although fairway bunkers can be found on only five-holes, greenside bunkers guard each putting surface on the Devlin/Von Hagge course. In total there are 56 soft sand traps situated about the layout. Water comes into play on seven holes, mostly in the form of ponds located off to the sides of landing zones although three of these hazards must be carried off the tee.
The terrain is primarily flat with exception of a few holes including the par five, 7th - which finishes straight downhill to the green from 150 yards out. Mounding is located mostly near the greens and flat lies are rewarded to those who drive the fairways. The course is tree lined but landing zones provide enough room to recover from miner mistakes off the tees and on approaches to the greens. Green complexes are rather large and fast with enough undulation to result some big breaking putts.
This is a fine course with great facilities, available for play to members and guests of the resort.For more info, visit our page for the course, with direct link to their website by clicking here.
