Quaker Hill Country Club is a private, full service club nestled in the foothills of the Berkshires in Pawling, New York. Offering an exclusively casual atmosphere,Quaker Hill Country Club boasts a top notch Robert Trent Jones Sr. 9-hole golf course complete with separate tees for each 9 and no tee times – ever. Two tennis courts, a perfectly manicured croquet court, full service dining facilities, and a rich summer children’s program round out the list of amenities the club has to offer.
Today, the course remains largely unchanged with a strong 6000+ yard, par 70 layout, which carries a slope rating of 134. With multiple tee boxes, undulating, small and heavily protected greens, coupled with difficult fairway lies, the course is a challenge for golfers of all skill levels.
QHCC was rated as one of the top 25 9-Hole courses in America by Golf Digest
Built for a group headed by legendary radio (and later television) broadcast journalist Lowell Thomas, the 3,046-yard par-35 opened in 1942. Inside the clubhouse, a converted barn, is a history wall, 30 feet high and 20 feet long, embedded with artifacts Thomas collected from his travels, including an ancient rock unearthed in Mesopotamia and a chunk removed during the construction of the Empire State Building. Also on display are all nine Trent Jones sketches of his proposed greens, and every green still exists almost exactly as he first envisioned them.
