The front nine of this par 71, 6,500-yard championship course is nestled within oak-lined valleys, and the back nine crosses a tidal estuary, making this a great golfing experience for all skill levels.

The course is challenging and interesting. Some blind shots,some over the water. Greens are in good shape. Price is reasonable.I suggest a golf cart because of the distance between some holes.
