New Addition to Turf Staff

  Quail Hollow Membership, Please let me welcome a new addition to our turf staff at Quail Hollow Country Club. Justin Horvat has accepted and as of this week begun the role of Devlin Course Superintendent. Justin comes to us from Signature of Solon Country Club where he was an assistant superintendent. Before Signature of Solon, Justin had worked at Aurora Golf Club and Barrington Golf Club. Justin comes highly recommended and has proven himself to be a great leader and team member throughout his career. He graduated from The Ohio State University (Agricultural Technical Institute) and has developed strong agronomy principles that will help Quail Hollow continue to improve. With Justin as Devlin Course Superintendent and James Dobbins as Weiskopf Course Superintendent, I am confident that we have put in place a group that will succeed in meeting and exceeding membership expectations at Quail Hollow Country Club. Thank you and I look forward to a great season. Best wishes,   Jeff Austin Director of Golf Course Maintenance Quail Hollow Country Club

Tree Damage from high winds

We had some very strong winds roll through the golf courses on Wednesday with gusts over 60 mph. On the course ride this morning we found 10 trees down on Weiskopf and 3 on Devlin.  While over the course of the winter wind has knocked down over 25 trees on both courses. We have cleaned up the trees that have come down.
