Quail Lodge Golf Club - Carmel, CA
Originally designed by Robert Muir Graves, the 6500 yard par 71 layout at Quail Lodge is very playable and well maintained. The course opened in 1964 and recently underwent a renovation by Todd Eckenrode in 2015.
Any hopes I had for a good score at Quail Lodge were dashed on the very first hole. After hitting a 300 yard drive right down the middle of #1, I still managed to make an all time personal worst score of 15. The 15 consisted of several costly wrong ball penalties, a 5 putt, and some O.B. action. Still one shot better than Kevin Na's 16. Despite the opening events, I still managed to enjoy the round.
