Pasco County deputies give Quail Hollow County Club county ordinance violations

The owner and now former manager at Quail Hollow Country Club in Wesley Chapel are both facing hefty fines. Deputies handed out citations Wednesday, after a shooting at a weekend pool party.

Pasco County Sheriff's deputies handed out more than $2,600 in code violation fines to the pair.

“This is to send a message that this is, we have zero tolerance for this kind of activity,” Corporal Mark Celeste with PCSO said.

Deputies handed out multiple citations. One major violation was that no one got a permit for Sunday's event. Deputies said the party was way over occupancy. When shots rang out, people bolted.

“And they run all through the houses and come through here,” Moody said.

In his 15 years living in the community, Moody said he's never seen anything like Sunday's chaos.

“Sounded like one boom and then pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, several times,” Moody said.

Deputies said the owner fired the management company the day after the shooting.

"Monday he should tear down the stage, he’s going to tear down the out door, he’s going to wind up taking the pools out," Corporal Celeste said.

A party planned for Memorial Day weekend is now canceled.

“I’m glad that they’re doing something about it, I’m just sorry that it’s hurting things in our community,” neighbor Joyce Moore said.

The owner and former manager are scheduled to be in court July 7.
