Quick 9: Pat Doyle, PGA, Head Golf Professional – The Quarry Golf Club

Calculate ROI

Designed by the world-renowned architectural team of Dr. Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry, The Quarry opened for play in 2007.

The Par 72 championship golf course offers an exceptional golf experience with spectacular views. Stretched across 800 acres of pristine native preserves, it features abundant wildlife and an expansive lake system.

For our latest Quick 9 interview, we caught up with The Quarry’s Head Golf Professional, Pat Doyle, PGA, who had some great insight and golfing memories to share with us.

How would you describe your morning routine to kickstart your day?

My morning routine involves first watering my bonsai trees before I leave the house. I’ve never been a big breakfast person before work but I do enjoy coffee. So that involves making black coffee at home with a bit of honey added or stopping at Dunkin for a cold brew (AKA rocket fuel). My drive in to work takes about 30 minutes and I like to spend it listening to a book on tape or music and driving slowly.

Has golf always been your first love?

Golf for me has always been about spending time with people and enjoying good competition between friends. I wouldn’t consider it a love but more of a hobby that I’ve made into a profession.

Tell us about your role at The Quarry Golf Club. Why is it important?

My role at The Quarry Golf Club is to manage our day-to-day operations and golf events. The day-to-day goal is to meet all of our Members’ and Guests’ expectations of what they think “their” private Golf Club experience should be. Obviously, it is very difficult to meet everyone’s expectations but if you give each individual the time and listen, each will tell you ways they think you can improve.

Why has your course decided to invest in Tagmarshal?

The Club invested in Tagmarshal to provide the management team with real-time pace data and a high-level visual of course traffic to improve our reaction time with slow play. The gravy on top is the 8” color display screen in each of the members’ private carts that provides them with their actual pace of play and hole yardages.

Since implementing Tagmarshal, how have your golfers responded to the on-course experience?

Any time you are introducing something new into a Member’s golf experience there can be some pushback. With Tagmarshal the Members thought we just needed better player assistants rather than paying a GPS company to tell us players are slow. Tagmarshal is a major assist when experiencing slow play and provides the Golf Staff with real-time information to react quicker to solve the issues sometimes before they develop into real problems.

Since implementation in 2022, our Members have embraced Tagmarshal and really enjoy the 8” color display screen and improved pace management.

Describe Tagmarshal in three words.

Sharp, intuitive and advantageous.

What is your dream golf destination? Why?

Old Head in Kinsale, Ireland. If you’ve been there then you know.

Your best golf moment?

Can I give you two? Watching one of my playing companions on the ‘Road Hole’ – number 17 at St. Andrews – make a 10 when he was 3 under through 16. One of his shots even stopped on the road.

The other was a match with one of my Club Members at North Berwick, Scotland (my favorite golf course). On the 2nd hole, he hit his drive on the beach (Firth of Forth). Luckily, the tide was out, he climbed down the ladder, hit his shot off the beach and somehow made a PAR. We ended up tying the hole and he won the match.

If you could be a caddie on Tour, whose caddie would you like to be and why?

I would caddie for any player in a Ryder Cup match, USA or European. The intensity and fire in that sporting event are unmatched.
