Land Rover Experience Driving School at Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley

I just did some searching and realize that Land Rover has and experience Center fairly close to where I live. Apparently they have owner days if you times a year where you can take your truck and go drive their courses. Has anyone ever done this? Good time and worth the trip/cost?

Never done it at the Quail lodge, but did it a few times at Manchester. It is pretty fun, especially if you don't have much experience running trails.

I noticed this on landroverusa.com last year, and booked a free 2 hour lesson in NC. In the end I had to cancel but it was indeed free.

I took the wife in the LR3 to the one at Biltmore N.C. a few years ago.
I actually learned a few things about my LR3. It was worth the money and the wife had a blast. As a plus they provided a catered lunch for the participants.

My wife and I did the Land Rover Experience at The Greenbriar WV back in the day.
It was a fun trip.

I did the quail lodge one about 8 years ago. It was really fun. Especially since I got to do it in a Range Rover and not care what happens.

I did the one out at Glen Eagles, Scotland back in the early 90's. Couldn't remember the cost to save my life, as it was through the resort and discounted anyways, but well worth it. That's where I got stricken with the Rover Bug.

I reached out to the Quail Lodge facility. You have to use one of their shiny new LRs for the training. They have a few "owners" days a year when you can bring your own LR. I have no interest in taking an LR3. I want to take my D110! With their truck it is $250 for 1 hour and $400 for 2 hours. I'm not sure how much "Owner's Day" costs.
