Pure Golf. Unsurpassed Amenities. Gracious Services. Preserving these “Timeless Traditions” has become an art at Quail Valley
Recognized as one of the top 10 premier clubs by LINKS Magazine. Quail Valley offers a unique club experience at two distinct Vero Beach, Florida locations.
Quail Valley’s mainland Golf Club offers a traditional golf experience with an emphasis on preserving the purity of the game at Florida’s largest maintained 18-hole course. Designed by Nick Price and Tommy Fazio, the 292-acre course features breathtaking elevations and panoramic views. At 62 feet above sea level, the 16th hole enjoys the distinction of being the highest point in Indian River County, with 13 additional locations on the course exceeding 46 feet in elevation. The 26,400-square-foot Shinnecock-style Clubhouse, a 64-acre lake, and more than 9,000 transplanted trees compliment the picturesque course that was formerly an orange grove.
Quail Valley’s golf experience is further enhanced by its 35-acre practice facility that includes 88,000 square feet of tee area and six par-three practice holes. A state-of-the-art Golf Learning Center offers the most advanced video technology coupled with private or group lessons.
Quail Valley also boasts a professional caddy program, seasonal tournaments and events for the whole family, including kids' camps that encourage children to take up the game, full service men’s and women’s locker rooms, casual dining, and a well-stocked pro shop to complete the golf experience and encourage camaraderie.
Quail Valley’s River Club personifies the charm, traditions, and values of the quaint, beachside town of Vero Beach. A multi-generational Club, Quail Valley’s family-centered atmosphere and impressive suite of amenities offers something for all ages and interests. A wrap-around porch graces the 12,500-square-foot Nantucket-style Clubhouse to take advantage of delightful riverfront views.
