QUAIL RIDGE USES FAST START TO WIN GOLF ROAD CUP

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. -- Quail Ridge Country Club won the first five matches and cruised to a 16-8 victory over Delray Dunes Golf & Country Club in the 18th Golf Road Cup, an annual competition between these two top private country clubs situated one mile apart on Golf Road in Boynton Beach, Fla.

Leading 9 ½-2 ½ entering Sundays singles, Quail Ridge won five matches and had three halves to clinch the victory. The two-day event was played in harsh weather conditions on Quail Ridge's North Course that included temperatures in the 40's and 25-mph winds. The victory gave Quail Ridge a 9-8-1 lead in this annual competition.

What's nice about winning is it keeps things competitive and fresh, said Quail Ridge captain Kevin Hammer, a former top-ranked junior player who went 2-1 in the matches. We dominated for a while and they have dominated lately. Both clubs have a long history of helping each other. Theres a lot of camaraderie and similarities between the two clubs.

Delray Dunes played without long-time member Bob Murphy, who won a combined 16 times on the PGA Tour and PGA Tour Champions. The 73-year-old Murphy said hes been bothered by balance issues, but was on hand to watch.

Murphy's absence probably didnt matter, the way Quail Ridge dominated from the start.

Quail Ridge played beautiful, said Delray Dunes member Jay Sigel, a two-time U.S. Amateur champion who won eight PGA Tour Champions titles. I don't know if we played our best, if that would have been good enough.

Woody Greene and Mario Forget led Quail Ridge with three points -- two of those points earned together. Hugo Cloutier and Francois Duquette also earned three points for Quail Ridge again two of them together.

Located 20 minutes south of West Palm Beach and only minutes north of Boca Raton, Quail Ridge Country Club offers its members two Joe Lee designed championship golf courses, extensive practice facilities, a 16-court tennis center, 29 community pools and a free-standing wellness center.

Quail Ridge is in the process of building a new $22 million clubhouse which should be complete by the fall of 2017.  For more information about Quail Ridge Country Club visit www.quailridgecc.com.

Quail Ridge CC Begins Clubhouse Demolition
By Brandi Shaffer | August 9th, 2016 Share this article:  

The Boynton Beach, Fla., club is removing its 40,000-sq. ft. clubhouse in order to build a new $22.75 million structure, which is expected to be complete by fall 2017. For the past month, the Palm Beach County Fire Rescue Department has used the old clubhouse to practice life-saving techniques by simulating rescue conditions.

Demolition of Quail Ridge Country Club’s 40,000-sq. ft. clubhouse, which has served the upscale golf community for 40 years and the local community for the last month, began this month to make way for a $22.75 million new clubhouse. The demolition phase of the project in Boynton Beach, Fla., is expected to take three to four weeks.

Quail Ridge’s residents overwhelmingly supported building a new clubhouse with an Old Florida island style that includes five dining rooms, an indoor and outdoor grille room, two outdoor dining patios, a lobby, a library, new locker rooms and a golf shop.

“We look forward to sharing many great experiences in our fantastic new clubhouse,” said Brian Sutherland, President of Quail Ridge’s Board of Governors. “We believe that this will not only enhance the membership value for our current members, but will also open doors as we welcome our future members.”

The new clubhouse, expected to be completed in the fall of 2017, will have enhanced views of the putting green, driving range, waterfall, tower clock and short-game practice area.

“This is all part of our plans of re-imagining Quail Ridge Country Club for the next forty years,” said General Manager Bill Langley.

Quail Ridge’s North Course and South Course were built by Joe Lee and renovated by Kipp Schulties. The club also has a tennis center, 29 community pools, a fitness center and is a member of the National Audubon Society.

Eight units from Battalion 4 of Palm Beach County Fire Rescue Department spent more than a month at Quail Ridge utilizing the old clubhouse for practicing life-saving techniques. They punched holes in roofs, from above and below, breached walls and simulated rescue conditions by blacking out windows and pumping smoke into buildings.

“There is no substitute for training our men and women on a real building to learn how to be safe while doing their dangerous jobs,” said Doug McGlynn, recently named District 4 battalion chief. “We thank the Quail Ridge Country Club community for this opportunity to train our firefighters to save lives.”

QUAIL RIDGE RESIDENTS KEVIN AND ALEXA HAMMER DEFEND FLORIDA SUMMER MIXED CHAMPIONSHIP

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. -- Quail Ridge Country Club residents Kevin and Alexa Hammer successfully defended their title in the Florida Summer Mixed Championship this weekend at Tranquilo Golf Club in Orlando.
 
Alexa's eagle on the 17th hole, when she holed out from a bunker, was the difference in their one-shot victory over Christopher Carlin and Nicole Ferre. The Hammers shot rounds of 61 and 65 to finish at 16-under 126 in the event run by the Florida State Golf Association.
            
We knew we were close and we probably needed to make a couple of birdies, and Alexa was able to hole a blind bunker shot, Kevin said. It was great fun for both of us.

This victory marked the fifth time the Hammers have won a team competition. They also won the Florida Mixed Shootout twice and the Father-Child at the Pop Sikes Championship in Atlantis.
 
There is nothing more special than playing with a family member in a competition and doing well, Kevin said. Those are memories that will last a long time.

The Hammers made 14 birdies, an eagle and no bogeys. Alexa is a sophomore at St. Andrews University in Scotland, becoming the first player to receive the Arnold Palmer Scholarship at the home of golf.
 
Located 20 minutes south of West Palm Beach and only minutes north of Boca Raton, Quail Ridge Country Club offers its members two Joe Lee designed championship golf courses, extensive practice facilities, a 16-court tennis center, and a free-standing health and fitness center. In addition, Quail Ridge Country Club is in the process of building a new $22 million clubhouse which should be complete by October 2017.

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. - Port St. Lucie resident Sandra Angulo Minarro and Mika Liu of Beverly Hills, Calif., shot 7-under 137s Monday to advance in a 36-hole U.S. Women's Open sectional qualifier at Quail Ridge Country Club. Minarro, a Mexican native, shot a 67 in the afternoon and practically ran to the scoring table. Part of her excitement?
