About The Quail West Golf Courses
One of the most luxurious communities in Southwest Florida is also the proud home to 2 distinctively different, yet beautiful, challenging, intriguing and dramatic golf courses. The first includes the Preserve Course which opened in the year 1992 and was designed by Arthur Hills.
The layout of this course offers outstanding natural beauty, while this environment also makes up the main challenge to the existence of this course. Over the years, the preserve area that surrounds this course has matured, which has resulted in the course becoming quite shaded and confined in places. This became a significant challenge in association with the greens, which always require continuous air movement and sunlight to thrive.
In 1993, plans were underway to produce another two 9-hole layouts, which resulted in the Lakes Course, with each nine constructed separately. Very different to the Preserve Course, The Lake Course is much more open, and during the period of construction, this site was just a level and open field of tomatoes, without any definition or distinctive characteristics.
The designers of this course worked hard on creating drama and interest to this course so that it would become a partner that was suitable and could match up to the Preserve Course. The design was also focused on becoming the primary amenity to the real-estate component associated with the homes that this course now weaves through.
In 2014, plans were made for improving both the courses, to modernize the aging infrastructure. These efforts were initially prompted due to the condition of the greens which were starting to suffer along with the antiquated irrigation systems. The plans that were developed for these upgrades also included the practice areas, the bunkers, tees, and various other miscellaneous considerations to provide a more holistic approach.
In the summer of 2016, a full reconstruction was executed for the Preserve Course which involved new greens, tees, bunkering, and a brand new irrigation system. This upgrade also included converting the existing #419 turf to Celebration Bermuda grass. Other parts of these working processes included improving the drainage, stacked capstone walls, cart paths, and a more prominent practice tee. The Preserve was opened again for play in December 2016.
A similar undertaking took place in the summer or 2017 for the Lakes Course, also in addition to the influences from record rainfalls, drought, and the impacts which were regarded as devastating from Hurrican Irma. Even though the scope of work was somewhat similar to what was employed for the Preserve Course, The Lakes was entirely different as it was far more open-scale and more of a strategic players course.
Even after the impacts caused by Mother Nature, this course was almost completed within the time frame predicted but still needed to address other issues which included erosion and the loss of turf. The Lakes opened again in the early part of January 2018.
The result of both these upgrades is two highly distinctive golf experiences, which includes significantly enhanced facilities for practice. This has also contained far more variety for the members, as this Club has entered the latest era of hospitality and service.
Known as a highly exclusive club, there are at this stage only 600 members who share these two distinctively different 18-hole courses which were both designed by Arthur Hills. The Preserve Course makes its way through over 200-acres of a densely forested preserve. This course offers magnificent views across the local areas. The fairways on this course vary from wide-open to extremely narrow, while greens are always in excellent condition.
The Lakes Course, which is a links-style incorporated the water hazards fo Quail West with an extensive system of waterways, lakes, and marshes into a masterpiece that is known as player-friendly. Both of these courses are known for their extremely complex closing holes, which presents a challenge to golfers of all experiences.
