This is a very beautiful course that boasts of being one of the most difficult in the world. well, maybe it used to be and in fact was quite a bit more difficult and beautiful when it first opened in 1992. But since then, the course has gone through a number of different owners and has been made easier (filled-in bunkers, cut down foliage, etc.) and also less beautiful. Still, when the weather is nice it is still a great course and a delight to play. some might call it "target" golf but it does take skill to pull off those carries. A couple of years ago they needed to replace the greens (the wet conditions caused mouldy greens) those are now in great condition. The course also has quite good practice facilities and houses a golf school. Beautiful clubhouse with almost every hole offering a paradise-like vista. Definitely worth playing - can be expensive if you are playing from out of state - about $100 I believe. If you have the money - play it! (better if the weather is clear, as the course can get wet).

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level, Best course in the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
