Quail Creek opened around 1970 as a 9-hole course carved out of an old dairy farm, but was quickly enhanced with the addition of a second nine. Surprisingly, the course remains this college town’s only regulation facility.
This semi-private track is known for its difficult greens that are sure three-putts if your game is not on. The fairways are not generous–they’re lined with trees and are quite narrow. The back nine is a bit more forgiving than the front. Water hazards come into play on seven holes.
Holes of note include the three par 3s that play around 190 yards and carry water. The other par 3 in only 167 yards, but has character because of the giant pecan tree that dominates the left side.
The hole everyone talks about is No. 7, a scenic 312-yard par 4 that plays over a canyon. The most difficult hole (primarily because of its length) is hole 13, which goes 435 yards and forces fairway wood approaches into the smallest green on the course.
Getting there : From I-35 south, take Exit 205/Hwy 80 and turn left. When you come to Hwy. 21 turn left and drive 1.5 miles to the course. The entrance is on the left side of the street.
