Accepting Quail Hollow Golf Course was a no-brainer for the Boise City Council.
The Boise City Council voted unanimously November 19 to take on the 18-hole, 140-acre course—the City of Trees' second municipal golf facility, joining the Warm Springs Golf Course.
Boise's Director of Parks and Recreation Doug Holloway told Boise Weekly that Quail Hollow is a welcome addition to Boise's recreation portfolio.
"It's in a completely different part of town [from Warm Springs Golf Course]," he said. "Even though it's surrounded by very nice developments, there are some real mixed neighborhoods that are really attractive to us," he said.
Holloway is especially eager to use the course to expand the city's junior golf program. Currently, junior players account for between 13 and 15 percent of tee times in Boise.
In an upcoming edition of Boise Weekly, we'll discuss how the course was acquired, how it will operate when the city takes its reins Dec. 1, and what it means for Boise golfers.
