I was visiting the area and stopped for a quick nine - $20. The course was just opening and the fairways were narrow with tall grass everywhere. I was warned it would be tough but hit a five iron off the tee as straight as...More

Didn't get to golf but very terribly tempted. However discovered that the pro shop serves great food. Salads, Macaroni and cheese, hot dogs and burgers, and more. Arguably the kids favorite snack shop and possibly meal stop. Pleasant setting and great staff too. Will definitely...More
