Residents of Missouri City and Quail Valley now truly have something to celebrate. On May 25th during the city council meeting Missouri City accepted the offer of $7.375 million for the purchase of Quail Valley Golf Course. The long battle between the Renaissance Group and the citizens of Missouri City is finally over! Now the city, according to Mayor Allen Owen, can focus on “beginning design of the tennis and recreation center and the clubhouse at Quail Valley Golf Course, And now we can move forward confidently with those two projects.”
This is a great day for Quail Valley. With the two parties reaching a settlement, the question of the legality of Missouri City taking Quail Valley Golf Course by eminent domain is no longer an issue. There should be no more court proceedings in the future.
Quail Valley Golf Course is a 390 acre facility located in the middle of our wonderful subdivision. It has long been the jewel of our community. Established in 1970, Quail Valley hosted the 1973 and 1974 Shell Houston Opens. The club boasts two championship 18 hole golf courses, La Quinta and the newly renovated El Dorado Course. The clubhouse at Quail Valley houses the The Grille restaurant with its now popular Pasta and Steak nights.
With many private and community events Quail Valley Golf Course has once again taken its place as the center of our community.
