About Us: Every golfer in North Florida and South Georgia has heard of Quail Heights Country Club. As a matter of fact, most golfers from Miami to Canada have heard of the 27-hole gem situated right next to Interstate 75 in Lake City, FL. Its true, golfers from all over the country plan a short or even extended stay in this rural community so they can enjoy the beauty and flavor of golf with true southern hospitality. The original 18-holes was designed by Jerry Cooper and was built in 1972. In 1978, Claude and Nicole Ste-Marie purchased the facility from former Lake City Mayor Jimmy Tyson. Today its a 27-hole semi-private Country Club that is enjoyed by tens of thousands each year. The Ste-Marie family has always been committed to improving the facility every year. They werent satisfied with the typical improvements and changes such as adding new cart paths, expanding and building new tees, sophisticated drainage improvements, clubhouse, pro shop and lounge renovations. These changes and improvements were necessary but simply not enough. Claude decided one day to build nine more holes! He knew this would set him apart from the rest as well as give him the flexibility that would maximize his operation. Quail Heights members and guests now have three 9-hole courses, each with its own characteristics. They are appropriately named the CREEKS, the PONDS and the DUNES. Next to the service and friendly atmosphere, this is perhaps the feature that has made Quail Heights what it is today. Imagine yourself playing the Creeks and the Ponds today, the Ponds and the Dunes the next. Then maybe the Dunes and the Creeks I think maybe your starting to get the picture. Its a new course everyday and truly separates Quail Heights from all the rest. Quail Heights has an extensive tournament schedule and a very active Mens and Ladies Golf Associations. The club has a history of hosting prestigious events such as the FUTURES Tour and the former TPA Tour with players in the field such as Seve Ballesteros, Steve Jones, Tom Lehman, John Daly and Kelli Kuehne.
