I played the other day...I missed 4 weeks after being diagnosed with a damaged meniscus, so I didn't expect much. I also had to ride instead of walking as I normally do. I yanked my tee shot on 1 left into the trees and made double. On the par 4 2nd I went OB and 3-putted for for an 8.

Then I settled down and added a club on every shot hitting 3/4 swings for the rest of the round and I ended up with one of my best rounds ever. Two 100 yard wedges inside 2', plus a 3-hydrid to 4' on a long par 4. I made 3 birdies, missed 2 others inside 10' and shot 79 with a double and a quad on the first 2 holes.

I have been to Quail on multiple golf trips. Absolutely love it. They redesigned it about 15 years ago now and did a terrific job. I started going there on a unlimited golf package in the early to mid 90s. Last year they had a goof Golf Moose deal.

I belong to a private golf club for the course quality, access (itís not busy), range/practice area, way to meet other golfers, and I live on the course. Itís not smart financially. It works out to ~$100/round walking.

I do miss playing a variety of courses, which could be done for about half the cost.

Great playing Music Lover. I have also found I sometimes play better when I have some ailment, maybe my back or knee hurts. I usually play better, I think I slow my swing down and shorten it.

I love golf Moose! I'll have to keep an eye out for that.
