Lovely course. Very difficult. Play was incredibly slow and made the course less enjoyable to play a 6 hour round of golf. Greens were really fast. All in all it was a huge challenge for me as a golfer but a beautiful golf experience

One of the great golf destinations in the nation that should be on your bucket list. The staff is outstanding, the golf is outstanding and the location can't be beat. It's on the level of Pebble beach, truly.
