Quail Hollow Club

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1959

Quail Hollow Club, home to a top-rated championship golf course, is located 9 miles south of downtown Charlotte, North Carolina. The excellent tree-lined parkland layout contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and testing golf holes ... and is home to the notorious "Green Mile".

Throughout, this excellently manicured course follows the folding contours of the terrain to present a challenge at every hole. The front-nine is predominantly played through graceful tree-lined fairways. The signature hole on this outward nine-hole loop is the testing par-5 7th, which is flanked on its right side by a snaking pond and accompanying rock walls and gently cascading waterfalls.

On the demanding back-nine the fun starts with a short driveable par-4 at 14. The closing trio of holes, infamously known as the "Green Mile", comprises the par-4 16th and par-3 17th, both flanked by the same small lake, and the long par-4 18th. Your drive at the final hole needs to find a tightish fairway; the hole is defined by a creek running up its entire leftside from the tee-boxes to the green.

Quail Hollow is definitely a course that will delight the golfing senses while challenging your all-round game. However, this is a private course generally playable only by its members and their guests.
