The POA owns the golf course; your POA Board has direct responsibility for the daily operations of the Pro Shop and the 27 holes of golf currently in place. All golf related salaries are paid through the POA. The Green Committee serves as an advisory body and makes its recommendations regarding golf operations to the POA Board for final approval. The fee structure is available at the Pro Shop counter and on line at the POA web site (under Golf/Quail Creek Country Club).

Information about the Green Committee including all minutes of monthly meetings can be found on the Quail Creek Property Owners Association website – click on Association Living, then Board, then scroll down to the Green Committee icon – where all current information can be found.  This includes the approved Charter of the Green Committee, all committee members and minutes of related meetings. Green Committee meetings are open to all residents.  They are held the first Monday of each month at 1:30 PM in the Madera Gold Room.

Yes and no. This is a seasonal issue. The Pro Shop is open until 4 PM October through April and can accommodate players through 4 PM due to the shorter days and lack of available daylight. Additionally, Outside Service (Ranger staff) is not equipped to accept payments during those months. However, beginning in May, the sundowner rate goes into effect and Outside Services is equipped to accept cash or a check for payment of green fees. Additional information can be obtained at the Pro shop.

The Chelsea on-line automated tee time system is the method by which you reserve your tee times on the three courses at Quail Creek, either by phone or accessing it through the POA website (under Golf/Chelsea Tee Times). You can make a reservation request 14 days prior to play but a booking reservation confirmation is made 5 days prior to playing. You can also observe the tee sheet for several days in advance of play to see if there are openings. Staff at the Pro Shop can assist you in how to use the Chelsea system.

Every resident will be supplied with a ‘My Winnings” card with the current year on the front once they have any winnings from a club association run event. This card will tell you - once swiped at the Pro Shop - how much shop credit you have won and is updated after every tournament. It is important to remember that all shop credit must be used by the end of the calendar year or it will be lost. There is no cash involved, although you may convert your golf winnings after you have accumulated $100 to a Gift Card that can be used anywhere at Quail Creek’s restaurants or for merchandise.

This committee operates as a sub committee of the Green Committee that researches, evaluates, and then recommends the pricing for annual members, Play Cards, green fees, cart fees, range card fees and related items for the next year. The prime objective is to have all income from various sources match or exceed the cost of operating the three nines and the Pro Shop, plus cover the cost of capital equipment for the golf course, all while offering a great value for QC residents. All pricing issues are approved in November by the POA Board once they have received the recommendation of the Pricing Committee to the Green Committee, the Green Committee’s recommendations, and the recommendation of the QC Finance Committee. This committee also works to promote non-resident memberships, outside tournaments and encourage golf to all new residents at Quail Creek.

Yes, the Course Subcommittee of the Green Committee is comprised of residents interested in working with the Golf Superintendent and Head Professional who meet on a monthly basis to discuss course conditions or as required due to conditions on the courses. 

This committee is comprised of over 200 residents who take responsibility for a given hole to repair divots and ball marks on the greens on a regular basis. Each hole has a team captain. If interested, you can find the team captain for each hole on the Men’s 18 hole or POA Web Site by scrolling down on the Home task bar or call Dave Schutt who is in charge of the Adopt-A-Hole team and a member of the Course Committee.

The golf comment cards, located by the score cards in the Pro Shop are for golfers to express their opinion and concerns about the golf course or the Pro Shop. Comments about the condition of the golf course are reviewed by the Green committee and the golf superintendent for taking action, while those pertaining to the Pro Shop are handled by the Head Golf Professional.

The golf superintendent determines when the golf course can be open for play. You can call 393-5817 to see if there are any delays. The message is usually updated one (1) hour prior to the first tee time.
