A great golf course beautifully designed by The Golden Bear Himself. The course was in pristine condition. A must play if you are in the area.

I agree, the setting and the ambience top. A great place for a sundowner- perhaps the bar could offer a menue or a list of available cocktails.

The greens were true, there was water and sand on almost every hole and the surrounding mountains made it very scenic. The... More

We visited the restaurant on an early Friday night and it was quite full. The food (T-boen and fish) was excellent. Great ambience. You can bring your own wine.

There was also additional costs... More
