When east coast people golf in California we always envision holes directly on the ocean because of golf tournaments camera coverage of these courses. Many courses only have holes that skirt the ocean with views off in the distance. This course literaly has an entire...More

The golf course is overrated. There is no driving range just net to hit into. The course was incredibly soft. The staff said the greens were punched the previous week. I am guessing since it was Tuesday they meant Saturday or Sunday because the ball...More

Stayed for 5 nights. Played golf a few times as well and enjoyed it. Stayed on bottom floor with easy access to everything. Rooms are clean and quiet. Large resort and it requires lots of walking to do anything. Will come again for sure.
