Yes, this is a course you must play - if only to try your hand at hitting the moveable, floating green. They do treat you well by meeting you immediately at your car, providing you with an impressive cart, and getting you quickly to the driving range. You are also met immediately by your fore caddie (more on that later). After warming up by hitting floating range balls into the lake, you are escorted to the first tee. My twosome was joined with another twosome and we had the one forecaddie. Yes, he does provide the service of telling you where to hit the ball, how the greens break, yardages to the pin, and cleaning your ball and holding the flagstick. But, unfortunately I found him more of a distraction than a help. I wanted to enjoy the experience but found myself noticing his excessive talking in my backswing and on two occasions he gave me the wrong yardage (I double-checked with my laser on all his yardages after I realized his errors). In one case I only had 195 yards left for my second shot on a par five and he gave me the yardage of 245 as he was lasering a tree behind the pin. I was not pleased when my 3 wood blasted over the green! And, of course, we all had to tip him at the end of the round. However, the course was gorgeous and in great shape in the month of June. It is tree-lined and has some fantastic par 3 holes. I would play it again if only I could just go out with my buddy and enjoy the experience with no distractions. Oh, the ride on the boat to the floating green is pretty cool. And, you can sit outside the clubhouse after you round with a perfect view of the hole and watch everyone try to hit the green.

This is definitely a "bucket list" course. Every avid golfer should try to play it at least once. We were treated like a king and queen. The forecaddie experience was absolutely incredible. The Par Threes are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen especially on one course. It would be nice if they offered a little less expensive option. As guests of the resort we had a "golf package" price. Overall it was a terrific vacation experience but not something we could afford to do more than once a year if that.
