Quaker Hill’s beautiful hilltop location was chosen by Lowell Thomas in the late 30’s as it was a place “where one could see in forty miles in any direction.” Mr. Thomas enlisted the help of Robert Trent Jones Sr. to lay out the challenging and unique course, which officially opened in 1940. In the early years, golfing greats Sam Snead and Gene Sarazen were among the frequent famous guests to visit QHCC.
Today, the course remains largely unchanged with a strong 6000+ yard, par 70 layout, which carries a slope rating of 134. With multiple tee boxes, undulating, small and heavily protected greens, coupled with difficult fairway lies, the course is a challenge for golfers of all skill levels.
Superintendent (and Club Manager), Gary Lattrell, employs a comprehensive approach to ensure the course is in top condition for the entire season. And for those die-hards, pins are kept in for the entire year.
Golf Pro, Tony Vos, is available for lessons throughout the year and runs a full service shop complete with anything a golfer may need. He brings a wealth of experience to Quaker Hill and even holds the course record – 62!
