We dropped in here to buy a shirt and a few keepsakes from a Scotish golf course. The pro was very nice and helpful with merchandise. The course was very green and open. I would like to return and play this downtown course.

Golf Course is a good test of golf for all handicaps male and female, the professional was very helpful and the club house, all i can say it was warm and friendly. I believe that the person behind the bar was the clubs steward... More
