Played in the afternoon - shoot in low 90s. - walk on without reservation to this P B Dye designed course. No one was playing. Felt like I had the entire course by myself! Got set up with rental clubs - Callaways X Set (extra charge $35). Include bucket of range balls. Cart fee was $50. Green fee is included in the resort. Mini cooler with drinks (water) is supplied. No caddies.
The course was beautifully maintained. Fairways perfect and greens rolled true. Good tee boxes. Didn't think it was that difficult for my skill set.
Not much undulation and pretty much flat course. No ocean/beach vista but lots of palm trees everywhere, of course. The bunkers didn't have fluffy white sands like I experienced at courses at upscale courses.
Few holes were picturesque - particularly the par 3s. Few blind shots holes. Watch out for #17 hole second shot. There is a creek running front of the green. Didn't even see it until I saw a splash on my second shot! #18 first shot is tough - have to clear lake and wind is against you! Pin placement info not given. Bring your range finder if you have one. Wish they provided a yardage book.
Even though the course is pretty wide open, bring extra balls just in case. If you hit into brushes, considered it lost!
No drink carts. You better bring your own snacks (from your room) if you like to snack while playing. I brought extra soda from my room mini bar. They do meet up with you at the turn to refill your cooler with drinks.
It's nice that golf is included in the resort but cart fee required and rental clubs fee means you will be spending $85-95 for "free golf"
Overall - nice experience. Would I play multiple time? Only if you are die hard golfer who bring their own clubs.
