$71 (cart included), played on Friday, July 2012 at 8am

A challenging layout in good condition that is fun to play. Lots of sand and water and houses/mansions. I've never seen so many huge homes on a golf course lining every hole. The homes are amazing. The bag drop was unmanned so I unloaded our clubs. The other two we played with carried their clubs down to the carts themselves. (The staff WAS around to clean our clubs and work us for a tip after the round). The clubhouse did me a favor by taking my money. After we followed a foursome for 10 holes, a ranger ( who followed us for 3 holes) told US to pick up the pace after they walked off a par 3 hole while we stood and waited for them to putt out. The course itself is really good. Generous fairways, challenging sand traps, some water comes into play & some is for show. They had us play 90 degrees carts which really slows play. I don't know why they did that. This is a nice but overpriced course. I'm glad I played it, and would like to play it again, but won't be going out of my way to do so especially at their price..

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again
