Didn't tell us the greens had just been punched!

I love Quail Lodge. It is one of my favorite tracks on the Monterey Peninsula, but when you book a tee time, they should tell you the greens were just punched two days prior, so we got to pay a $160 for a round on a course with sandy, super bumpy, punched greens! They were so bad, even short puts were near impossible as they would bounce like crazy. We had to make it an auto 2 putt as even a 3 footer would jump off line. Come on Quail, you are better than this! Just be honest. Now I know why there was almost nobody else on the course! That gets a 1 star in my book although I love this course.

Would have never booked

We booked a special birthday round for a foursome and looked forward to the normally great conditions at this course. Unfortunately we were told after checking in that that greens had just finished being punched and sanded TWO DAYS PRIOR. We told the staff how disappointing that was to hear and that there was no warning listed on the Golf Now site about this when we booked the round. The reply from one of the staff was one had played (after the aerification) and they were "rolling pretty well". That is the overstatement of the year in my world! The greens played like freshly punched, sanded greens. Soft as putty, and as bouncy and untrue as it gets.

We would have never paid for an expensive round of golf on freshly aerified greens, and always look for this kind of thing when using the Golf Now system. Most courses list this up front but Quail Lodge did not. Perhaps an oversight, but we feel taken advantage of. Looking today it looks like it's now been added to the site (for future bookings) so the staff must have passed the word along. Too late for us unfortunately. :(

Great Course in Carmel Valley

Very good golf course. Weather is always a bit warmer than Pebble Beach weather.

Only limitation is practice range hitting limits between 205 - 220 yards (Short Driving range)
