The QHCC golf course's beautiful hilltop location was chosen by Lowell Thomas in the late 1930s as it was a place "where one could see in forty miles in any direction." Mr. Thomas enlisted the help of the famed Robert Trent Jones to lay out the challenging and unique course, which officially opened in 1940. Golfing greats Sam Snead and Gene Sarazen were among the frequent guests of Mr. Thomas in these early years. The course is a timeless classic that embodies many noted Trent Jones design elements. Most of these course features, along with the historic character, remain largely unchanged to this day. It is a nine hole course yet uses 18 tee boxes to offer differing angles and approaches to each hole. Undulating greens guarded by sand traps with a large variety of pin placements keep even the most seasoned member guessing how best to play each hole. A comprehensive approach is taken to ensure that the conditions of the course, particularly the greens and fairways, remain in the highest quality possible throughout our April-October season.

Tip of the Day

Downhill Lie

  1. Play the ball slightly back of the middle of the stance
  2. Set-up perpendicular to the ground, but resist being pulled down the hill past the ball
  3. Tilt the shoulders as much as possible to match the slope of the ground
  4. Allow for the club being somewhat delofted which will cause the ball to go lower
  5. Aim slightly left
  6. Take a few practice swings until there is comfort feel, then make a controlled swing following the level of the ground.
