Overpriced, poor service, dirt cart paths, tiny greens, hard tee boxes, no views, don't waste your time or money to go here. Spend the extra and do the Four Seasons, Westin or JW Marriott golf courses.

My father-in-law and I golfed here in late February. Unfortunately it did not really meet our expectations of paying $120 USD. In Kansas City where I live, it would be equivalent to a course I can play for about $20/round. There are no cart paths,...More

This course is expensive for the conditions, and the greens are so small it's almost a joke. But it is one of the only courses in the area, the people were nice, they have a pool that you are welcome to use between 9's, so...More
