The Quail Valley Golf Course in Missouri City, Texas
2880 La Quinta Drive, Missouri City, Texas 77459
Looking for a great place to play some golf?
Though the Quail Valley Country Club first opened as a private facility (1970), today the Quail Valley golf courses are open to the public with reduced rates for residents of the Quail Valley neighborhood. The freshly redesigned El Dorado golf course features rolling terrain while the La Quinta golf course is more of a classic, target-style golf course with elevated greens. The public golf courses are considered some of the best values and places to play in the Houston golf region.
Quail Valley Proud hosts various golf outings or tournaments throughout the year. Check out our events and stay connected with us. For more details about the golf facilities or First Tee Program information, visit www.golfquailvalley.com.
The Houston Open - Did You Know?
Many golfers and residents are often surprised to discover that Quail Valley once hosted the Houston Open in 1973 and 1974. Though it was a different route or combination of holes than what’s available for public play today (holes #1 & #11-18 on El Dorado, holes #1-#3 & #13-#18 on La Quinta), we are still proud of this legacy.

The developers of Quail Valley Golf Club paid the Houston Golf Association a handsome $25,000 fee to move the Houston Open to Missouri City. The HGA boosted the purse to $205,000 and the tournament got its second consecutive Australian champion. Bruce Crampton shot 11-under-par 277 for a 1-stroke victory over Dave Stockton.

Disappointed that the $205,000 purse didn’t attract a star-studded field, the HGA cut the purse to $150,000. That enabled the HGA to write a check to Boys Harbor for $20,000, marking the beginning of a focus on youth-oriented charities. Dave Hill won by a shot with a 12-under-par 276 total, one shot better than Andy North, Steve Melnyk and Rod Cur
