There is a little side entertainment while playing the course. Watching racing cars, while playing golf was a fun experience. The course was wet, but in all fairness, it was exciting playing this early in the season. The sand traps were impeccable, and I played out of a bunch of them. There was not much roll in the fairways, so although it is not a long course, 6074, from the white tees, it played longer. Also, there are not many penal areas, so bogey was my worst hole. The meat of the course are holes #10,11,&12. The best night for eating in the lounge are Friday nights, fresh fish, my favorite food.
