This is one of those hidden gems that the local members must hate when attention is brought to it. The course has a relatively new Super, greensmaster and club pro...all of whom are excellent at what they do. The fairways and greens were immaculate and the rough frustrating but not impossible. As others have mentioned, there can be quite a bit of a breeze, so keep it low. There are a ton of bunkers and that makes up for the lack of trees to humble those who can't keep it in the fairway. They had a blight that killed nearly all of the coconut palms on the island, including those that lined the course. The new one's they've planted are coming in nicely and in a few years will add to the difficulty. I haven't been blessed to play many of the PGA courses that sit on the water, but I image the 14th through the 17th could rival any of them for their views.
If you didn't bring your clubs, don't worry. The rentals are much better clubs than most average golfers own. There is a guy who wanders the course collecting all of the errant shots and has bags of balls (18 to 24 to a bag) divided by brand on sale for $10. I'm an ok golfer and I only lost a few balls, though I heard from some others that losing a dozen or more is not uncommon on a really windy day.
I can't wait to go back and play this course again.
