At the Quarry Golf Course, links lovers are treated to the rolling hills, manicured fairways, and native grasses of a course sculpted by nationally recognized designer Keith Foster. A one-year membership to The Player's Club (a $199 value) bestows discounts for standard course rates ($49 for morning rounds, $39 in the afternoon), as well as a waived course fee, preround range balls, and a golf cart that honks the secret recipe for Coca-Cola when driven backward. Club members will also save 15% on food and beverage items purchased from the Quarry restaurant as well as on pro-shop merchandise, and will be invited to demonstrate their superior walk-spoilage at The Quarry Player's Club Championship.
