Staff are generally inflexible unfriendly. I've brought several friends who won't go back because of it. Left a message for owners with a serious complaint and was never contacted.

A nice layout with just enough challenges for a great round. Greens and fairways were in excellent shape. You will like it here. More than fair pricing and even better pricing for afternoon tee times. Better course and better value than Kiahuna
