Tremendous views, interesting and undulating scenic course. Caddies were a nice touch. Even though only 14 holes available because ocean side holes are being reconstructed, we still had a great round!

The course is superb, well kept and challenging, and the views of the Sea from the higher holes is incredible. The locker room is nice and the showers are fitted with first class local ammenities. The food at the restaurant is amazing too.

This is a beautiful course. Up, down, with amazing views. The caddies are great too.. Only thing is they have this colonial arrogance still, and seem to only want rich people to play. Plus they only accept cash! And the nearest ATM is miles away,...More
