Great golf course! However of the rudest rangers I have ever encountered on a golf course in my life. They basically ruined our weekend. They should all be FIRED!!! Golf here at your own risk.!!!!

Rangers are old grumpy a-holes that like to attack young golfers, I won’t be back despite the beautiful course conditions.

Nothing clever or special about the menu. Ambience is the name of the game here. Fodd service food. Bar is nice.

The golf course itself is fantastic. It's beautiful and wonderfully maintained. It's as nice as they come. It has the feel of a classic country club course. The layout is not overly fancy with a lot of tricky features like you might see at a...More

We thought the course was wonderful and would like to return for play and stay. Greens were receptive and held most approach shots. Also played "Little Course" and had fun. The restaurant and bar staff were nice with good service. Well worth the trip.
