Where2Golf says: 

Quail Lodge Resort & Golf Club: Variety, picturesque scenery and an excellently maintained layout await the visiting golfer to Quail Lodge. At times relatively flat, at others more undulating, this parkland golf course may only measure 6500 yards from the tips, but it throws down as good a golfing challenge as you'll find on the Monterey Peninsula. Stylish, strategic bunkering; plenty of small lakes in play (especially on the closing stretch) and the Carmel River washing alongside some of the holes ensures the need for good course management. Some testingly tight tee-shots, not least at the short par-4 10th hole, will also require accuracy from the tee if you are to score well.

Nestling down in the scenic Carmel Valley there are many wonderfully natural stretches on this layout. Although houses are present alongside some of the holes, more so on the front-nine, they never intrude too closely. Added to the picturesque beauty of the valley, the golf course also contains a pleasant mix of several different tree varieties, further enhancing the course's undoubted parkland charms. Picturesque views aside, you will need to have homed in on your A-game for the testing and watery final few holes. As you putt out on the par-3 17th green and prepare to play your tee-shot at the par-4 18th, your gallery might just include one of Carmel Valley's more famous residents. The A-frame home perched above you on a small, white cliff belongs to the legendary actress, singer and animal welfare advocate, Doris Day.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Did you know?

Located just 4 miles from Quail Lodge is Carmel-by-the-Sea, usually just called Carmel. This famous Californian west coast town is endowed with a rich artistic history. In 1910 it was reported that 60 percent of Carmel's houses were built by citizens who were "devoting their lives to work connected to the aesthetic arts." The town has had several mayors who were poets or actors including Herbert Heron, founder of the Forest Theater, and actor-director Clint Eastwood, who was mayor for one term, from 1986 to 1988. Clint Eastwood is a co-owner of Pebble Beach Resorts, with its four championship golf courses (Pebble Beach Links, Spanish Bay, Spyglass Hill and Del Monte); he also owns a private golf course, Tehama, spectacularly located in the hills above Carmel.
