Concept  8/10
An impressive and understated little course, which belies its appearance and has a turn to match Augusta’s in difficulty, Quail Hollow is very much worth anyone’s while. Deceptively straightforward, several holes are little classics of design and yet the course steers well clear of gimmicky hole design and asks player purely to play holes on their own merits. It’s unselfconsciously ‘take it or leave it’ golf, and yet has much more appeal than other country club layouts, thanks to finesse in the design and no little acumen in this loving re-creation.
Appearance  9/10
Textures have been lovingly chosen and used, particularly noticeable around the hazards, although some of the transition are a little unconvincing. The 2D and 3D custom objects around the course add excellent tone, as does a skilful panorama. Best of all are the elevations, carefully handled and always to the advantage of challenging golf; never to the detriment of the golfer.
Playability  7/10
Many courses of this type prove to be unfulfilling and repetitive. Thankfully, Quail Hollow doesn’t often stoop to this, although it has to be said that the hole lengths lack variety, and there aren’t a huge variety of different hole strategies used. It’s never dull, thanks to a sprinkling of clever and good-looking holes, but it lacks sufficient variety to be really engaging.
Challenge  7/10
Anyone playing the first half-dozen holes might be forgiven for thinking they’d be in for an easy ride. Open fairways and flat greens contribute to low scores. Thankfully, the target areas diminish gradually around the turn, the deep rough becomes a definite threat, and making par will often be a long way off. The course eases up towards the end: a fair challenge on average, but consistency certainly isn’t the watchword.
Technical  7/10
The improvements that have been gradually made to this course are clear. Unfortunately, that is the main flaw: the fact that new textures and new planting are undeniably inserted into the existing course and not sufficiently blended with the existing landscape. There are still hard edges noticeable in the most unfortunate of spots, and as a consequence the course never experiences that ultareal feel conveyed by the best 2k3 courses.
Overall An entertaining little course: perhaps a bit rough around the edges, technically, but good fun to play and without any ‘big name’ course pretensions. 38/50
