A truly magnificent facility that is reasonably priced. The course has a fair amount of water on it and the landing areas can be tight. So you need to properly manage the course to score. My mates and I had a great time and did not lose many balls. Overall experience was A+.

This is a great golf course which would be a challenge for anyone. The greens run true and are very fast and there is water in play on many holes. The service is great and we enjoyed two great rounds of golf - if only the scoring could have been better!

This Brunch was recommended to us by friends and as we had family visiting with children we decided to give it a go. It is really different experience, the setting is so peaceful on the grass overlooking the golf course. You can choose to have a table and chairs or picnic blanket, we opted for the latter and as a... More

I could not believe the service and amenities for the price! I made reservations for lunch, with rented shoes, clubs, cart and purchased balls for virtually nothing - less than $200. These fees included a driving range with unlimited ball, a concierge to assist in supplying the bottom-less basket of range balls, and a clubhouse shower room fit for a... More
