Quail Run Golf Club opened in 1997. The course was designed by Bert Buehler.
Quail Run was built in the rolling hills of a former ranch only 25 miles east of San Antonio and previously named Las Palomas, Quail Run is a links-style course. Bert Buehler laid the course out with minimal trees, rolling fairways, undulating greens, bunkers, and water hazards, which all combine to make this one of the more difficult courses in the area. It plays long because of the wind (over 7,000 from the tips).
Quail Run is the centerpiece of a neighborhood development in the country outside of town. The course is as close to a true links-style layout as you can get away from a coastline. It was built on very sandy soil, playing areas lined by tall, reedy grasses blowing in the breeze; lots of sand traps, some of them deep; nearly treeless and buffeted by winds. The course also has small, interesting greens.
Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 7,018 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,278 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 18, a par-5 that plays to 602 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 4, a par-3 that plays to 172 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 9, a 559 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 11, a 384 yard par-4.
