Our caddie leon was great. Course was ok, but glad we had the experience. STaff was very friendly, and the Callaway rentals were a nice surprise.

I played one round of golf, that was “included”. The greens were in poor shape. You had to pay for a caddy, and a golf cart. So, in total, I spent $100 to golf a bad golf course.
