After my whirlwind Tahoe weekend, I joined JohnnyGK for a bonus 2-day detour along the coast. We started at Quail Lodge, which is always a treat because it’s a good course with spectacular conditioning. We were joined by GK’er Alex326 and another single and we played behind a visiting ladies’ group from MPCC. They played at a good clip and we finished in just over 4 hours.

As expected, the course was nearly perfect all the way around with the deep green Poa turf throughout. Tee boxes, fairways and rough all excellent and nicely manicured. Bunkers with great white sand. Greens rolling pure at medium-fast speeds. About as good as a course can look and play!

Thank you to for the Quail Lodge staff for having GK out and we had a good time as always. Definitely worth adding to your list as another great option to consider while visiting the Monterey Peninsula, especially this time of year when the Pebble courses are socked in by fog/overcast skies. Out in the Carmel Valley, it was clear skies and perfect temps for us.
