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. Weiskopf course 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 72 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.
The course is marked by stakes 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. A total of 57 soft sand bunkers are strategically situated near landing zones and greenside throughout the layout. Seven holes feature water hazards in the form of lakes and ponds challenging golfers to avoid being penalized.
There are four sets of tee boxes to choose from with distances and slopes measuring 6872 yards/136 slope, 6408 yards/130 slope, 6019 yards with a slope of 125 for men and 136 for woman, and 5166 with a slope of 127 for woman playing the forward tees. This unique hole layout features four par 3's on the par 34 front nine, and only one par 3 on the par 37 back. All six par fours on the back nine (which plays nearly 800 yards longer than the front) are over 400 yards long.
There is a noticeable difference in elevation between the two courses on property, but the Weiskopf/Morrish has a more uneven terrain. There are some fairways that slope from one side to the other, and greenside mounding is more apparent. Fairways are a little more tightly tree lined and there is not as much room for error on either side. The Weiskopf is the more challenging and slightly more interesting of the two courses.
This is a fine course with great facilities, available for play for members and guests of the resort. For more info, visit our page for the course, with direct link to their website by clicking here.
