Quail Ridge Country Club in Boynton Beach, Fla., recently celebrated the grand reopening of its South Course. Bobby Weed Golf Design oversaw the complete redesign of this course.

“Quail Ridge has an enthusiastic and active membership that loves golf,” said Bobby Weed. “The South Course improvements provide a modern, contemporary finish that will keep the membership engaged for several decades.”

Central to the project was a reduction in irrigated, maintained turf, which was replaced with coquina-like concrete screenings and pine straw. The striking visual contrast orients golfers on each tee as they contemplate the ribbons of emerald green turf winding through the lighter areas of screenings. Sturdy coquina boulder walls at several green sites stand as exclamation points on the layout’s new aesthetic.

The renovation, which also included the practice area, began in April. Weed and associate Joey Graziani spent five months living on-site, personally crafting the intricately contoured green complexes. Clustered bunkering and open approaches encourage a variety of thoughtful shot-making, servicing the full spectrum of ages and abilities within Quail Ridge’s membership.

“The Society of Seniors originated at Quail Ridge and the membership has a number of good golfers on its rolls,” Weed continued. “Designing for a discerning and forward-thinking audience is always engaging.”

The renovation of the South Course followed the successful 2017 unveiling of a bright and modern $23 million-dollar clubhouse.
