Course is definitely MUST PLAY if you can get on. Guest fee is pretty hefty at $225. There's reason why they're exclusive. This is the course Jack Nicklaus grew up playing. Ambiance is top notch. This course has ProV1 golf balls at their driving range, that should tell you quality of the course and cost. One of the top 100 course in the nation.

Would travel: 120-300 Miles, Vacation Worthy
