Carl Hiaasen: Where I Love to Play


Quail Valley Golf Club
Vero Beach, Fla.

The course here is
long and windy, with
water everywhere —
it’s the perfect setup
for a middle-aged
hacker with a bad
back. The course is
also located in a very
beautiful setting,
which is especially
helpful when you hit
the ball as erratically
as I do. Among
the therapeutic
distractions available
at Quail Valley are
actual quails, bald
eagles and some
seriously beefy
alligators. Personally,
I’d like to see more
snakes on the back
nine, but I can’t
seem to get the
membership fired
up about that.
