Quail Hollow Golf Course

You know the Quail Hollow Championships is held in the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. But do you know the club very well? Actually it is one of the finest in the Southeast of the United States. Quail Hollow has been an outstanding venue since it first began hosting the Wachovia in 2003, it invariably being impressive in its presentation while remaining relatively impervious to low scoring.


Quail Hollow Club's 18-hole, par-72, 7,442-yard layout which was designed by George W Cobb and opened in 1961, is a major reason why the world's best players have been drawn to it, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Padraig Harrington being just three of the big guns who like to play here.

But if the weather cooperates and little rain falls, Quail Hollow could be even more inhospitable to potential par busters. However, the PGA Tour reports that officials are working on plans to present a faster track. The rough is being trimmed back and the greens made faster and firmer using their sub-air system which means, of course, that players who have swung decently with their top brand golf clubs.

At present, Quail Hollow is poised to cater to shot makers who can shape shots off the tee and around its tree-line doglegs and to putters with plenty of feel as the Greens expected to run at 11.5 to 12 on the stimpmeter. And that's on the flat patches, something that are few a far between at Quail Hollow.

In addition, wind might also be more of a hindrance than it has been in the past at some of the holes where peripheral vegetation has been removed "to give the course more air". But Quail Hollow is doing their best to polish the course. Not long after, you will definitely see another much better golf course.

The fact that the course has four par fives that are all reachable in two and drivable par fours at the eighth and 14th holes could help buoy up the spirits, though.
