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.
