When you walk in to the golf shop at Quail Lodge & Golf Club you are immediately immersed in the latest resort-wear, golf accessories, souvenirs and gifts. If you are lucky, you are also greeted by our energetic, positive and extremely charismatic Retail Coordinator, Carrie Cotton-Murphy. Carrie has been working at Quail Lodge & Golf Club since 2001, but she originally became acquainted with the property in 1988 when she got married here … so you can literally say that she fell in love with Quail! And since formally joining the Quail family she has offered unsurpassed dedication to her work and a smile that will brighten anyone’s day.
In addition to overseeing the retail in the Golf Shop, Carrie also assists with managing and selecting the merchandising for the Peninsula Hotels Signature Motoring Events, The Quail Motorcycle Gathering and The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering. Twice a year, Carrie meets with approximately 50 to 60 different representatives to discuss and choose the styles and products that we will feature for the upcoming year. Her unique eye for design and infectious personality has positioned Quail Lodge’s retail as a prominent add-on for group programs, offering customized items that are on trend and on budget.
According to Carrie, Quail Lodge & Golf Club holds a special place in her heart, not only because of the fond, personal memories, but because of all the fantastic people that she gets to surround herself with daily. She firmly believes that Quail is the best golf course on the Monterey Peninsula, and she is committed to coordinating top-notch retail that follows suit.
Outside of work, when she’s not out playing a round on the golf course, Carrie enjoys just being silly and laughing with her friends and family … and she will never say “no” to a glass of wine and having fun, preferably together!
Next time you are in need of some retail therapy and a good laugh, stop by the Golf Shop to stock your closet or souvenir shelves with hand-selected items from Carrie and thank her for all that she does to keep us trendy and established.
