What Quail Meadows says about their facility: 

"Exceptional conditioning makes this championship par 72 course a must for golfers of all abilities in the Peoria area. The front nine is open with water coming into play on three of the holes. After making the turn, the player needs to strive for accuracy over distance as more trees come into play as well as the ravine that affects four of the nine holes. Several acres of this course have been converted to naturalized areas that a variety of birds now call home. Both challenging and aesthetic, put golfing Quail Meadows on your list of things to do this year. Located off of Centennial Drive next to the Illinois Central College Campus.  " -
