I am a beginner golfer and felt very comfortable golfing here. I had a great caddy, Michael. I learned a lot from him and never felt like I didn't belong there. Also, Janet, our beverage cart girl was amazing, she went off property just to find us bug spray!!!!!

This course is a perfect example of a course that could be great but missed the mark. The greens were sparse and inconsistent, the fairways were dry and hard and the general upkeep of the course was fair at best. The highlight was Alfonso, the caddy who provided great entertainment and service during the round and was very quick with... More

Nice golf course but the resort gives you the impression it is included in your resort package. Once you get there, you find out it is $40 for 9 holes and $80 for 18 to rent golf clubs, plus cart rental, plus mandatory golf caddy.

Dear guest, Green fees are complementary. Caddy is the only thing mandatory. If you are renting clubs they do come at a cost. Cart is not mandatory as you can walk the course. Scott More

Course is not in very good shape. Yes, they advertise free green fees but have a structure to get paid for the golf.

The course is not in good shape. Lots of crabgrass in the fairway and needs a lot of work to make it into a much better course. It was great to golf on vacation and planned to go more than once but due to the bad conditions of the course, we only went the one time. Hopefully they continue to... More

Our greens fees were included, but had to rent cart, clubs and have a mandatory caddy = still $150 for 18. Greens and tees were in good shape, but everything else in between needed work. Our caddy was really fun and had great tips for us tho.

Green fees are free, my husband enjoyed the golf and the Caddie's helped his game. Don't forget to tip them, they really work hard.

I played here because it was included in our pkg. It still cost me 120.00 US$. The course was in need of some updates. The caddie was great and if i had not had him, I would have never found my way around. There are no clear cart paths and they are short on rainfall, so the fairways were brown.... More
