Golf Club and Restaurant Closed July 30-31, 2012

The Quarry Golf Club and Restaurant will be closed for aerification July 30-31, 2012.

The course will re-open Aug. 1, 2012.

To thank you for your patience we offer a post-aerification special rate to our e-mail group. Sign up here.

"The Quarry Golf Club is performing the final greens aerification of the year on July 30-31, 2012. Aerification is critical to maintain the health and playability of all turf areas but most importantly greens.  

Over time, the greens become compacted from mower and foot traffic and the compacted soils do not allow air, water and nutrients to infiltrate into the root zone effectively.

By removing a core of soil and replacing it with clean, pure sand, we are removing thatch and alleviating the compaction that has built-up over the summer.  

This cultural practice greatly improves the health of the turf and that, in turn, means great putting conditions for you in less than two weeks.  

Thank you for your patience."

PGA Results from Tournament at The Quarry

Stratton Nolen Wins Playoff, Baker and Gillman Crowned Champions at the PGA Junior Series Event at The Quarry

(credit to for this press release)

SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Stratton Nolen of Austin, Texas, defeated San Antonio’s Christian De La Cruz in a playoff to win the PGA Junior Series Event at The Quarry and earn an exemption into the 37th Junior PGA Championship.

Nolen had a consistent round, carding 15 pars and three birdies. His only bogey of the day came on the first playoff hole but it was good enough to win the boys’ 16-18 division. Nolen mishit his approach shot, resulting in a lost ball.

“In the playoff, I hit a perfect drive right where I wanted to. I’d trusted the three-wood all day but one bad shot almost cost me,” said Nolen, “I kept telling myself to stay in it. Fight as hard as you possibly can until it’s over and figure out a way to make a bogey.”

De La Cruz appeared to have the advantage on the playoff hole with his second shot sitting in the green-side bunker and Nolen having to play his provisional ball. But De La Cruz took two strokes to get out of the bunker and then missed a five-footer for bogey. De La Cruz shot a two-day total of two-under par.

J.J. Lindsey of Adkins, Texas, eagled the fifteenth hole to climb his way up the leaderboard, firing a 69 on the final day to finish with a two-day total of even par, placing third in the boys’ 16-18 division.

David Baker of Weddington, N.C., won the boys’ 13-15 division, shooting one-under-par 71 for a two-day total of 147. His short game proved to be the difference on Tuesday.

“I could tell early that it was gonna be my day. I was getting up and down for par,” said Baker, “My goal was really just to survive the back nine and score on the front.” Baker shot 35 on the back nine.

Thirteen-year-old Christian Fanfelle of San Antonio, Texas was one-under-par after the first nine but dropped three shots on the back for a two-over-par 73. Fanfelle was runner-up, shooting a combined two-day-total score of 148.

Jake Stevenson of Boerne, Texas, shot a 73 for two-day total of 153, finishing in third place.

Kristen Gillman of Austin, Texas, hung on to her first-round lead and finish the day with a three stroke victory in the overall girls’ division and girls’ 13-15 division. Gillman fired a one-over-par 72 for a two-day total of 142.  Gillman’s consistent ball-striking was the key to her win.

“I hit a lot of fairways and greens and that made it a lot easier to get birdies and pars,” said Gillman, “Taylor and I were pretty close coming down the stretch so I knew I had to make some birdies.”

Taylor Coleman of San Antonio, Texas was even with Gillman with seven holes left to play. Coleman bogeyed the next three holes to finish with a 74, three shots behind Gillman for a two-day total score of 145, finishing second in the girls’ 13-15 division.

Maddie Luitwieler of Edmond, Okla., finished third, carding a two-day total score of 154.

In the girls 16-18 division, Jordy LaBarbera of Allen, Texas, fired a one-over-par 72 to win with a two-day combined score of three-over-par 145. LaBarbera had four birdies to counter five bogeys.

“My ballstriking was good both days,” said LaBarbera, “My putting could have been a little better but was still OK.”

Ali Cowan of Victoria, Texas was the runner-up, shooting 73 on Tuesday for a two-day total score of 147.

Haley Mills of Tyler, Texas finished in third place, with a combined two-day score of 153.
