THE RUN AT Crystal Lake CC is over for head golf professional Casey Brozek. Brozek who previously served as Illinois PGA section president, and was the sections professional of the year in 2016, has moved on to greener, or maybe it’s warmer pastures in Naples Florida.

For Brozek, the change became the opportunity to be a part of club that is growing in many ways.

Quail West is spending over 32 million dollars to be a better facility. It’s new Health and Wellness Center will make a difference for the clubs membership. That facility is over 12,000 square feet.

Brozek’s start in Naples was delayed because of hurricane Irma, in fact his trip down to find a house was put off for three weeks to make sure any potential house he might be interested in, was still standing, and or not underwater, or had significant water damage to it. Once those worries were behind him, Brozek headed for Florida found a house, and then rolled up his sleeves and got to work.

The only question was, where would he work. His new office and the pro shop were under construction. But once they were completed, it was worth the wait. The space the pro shop has, gives Quail West plenty of room to sell all the apparel and merchandise they want.

The clubhouse is now over 70,000 square feet

Brozek’s new office is pretty sharp as well, complete with big glass windows that give him a view of the pro shop. once he settles in at Quail West, he will look to become more involved in the local PGA section like he was in Illinois.

Quail West has 36 holes with both courses being designed by Arthur Hills, and the two courses are the Preserve Course and the Lakes Course. Both courses play to their name, the Preserve sits among the trees, and the Lakes Courses has more water than the Preserve Course.

The practice area which is being improved, can hold plenty of golfers regardless of which part of their game, they wish to work on.

When golf is over for the day there is plenty more you can do at Quail West. If your body needs some recovery you can go visit the spa. There is also a full size swimming pool to enjoy.

The clubhouse has both casual and fine dining options. If you have a major event to host, the grand ballroom seats over 300 guests. Tennis is among the other options one can take part in at Quail West.
