We found out about this on Trip Advisor and registered for a free Sat. morning lesson. It was really fun and of course something that we had never done before. Wear sunscreen and a hat, as well as the suggested white clothing. I was surprised at the number of people that were there for the class (around 14).

Free lesson, beautiful setting complete with a club house, and learning how to play this deliciously devious sport added up to a perfect morning . You get a lesson and play a competitive game . They provide the equipment . We stayed... More

Who knew croquet was such a strategic game? Our instructor Bob taught the basic skills and strategies of the game to four of us who hadn't played since we were kids. Great fun for a couple of hours.

If you have never been and you are a croquet enthuisist I would highly recommend the National Croquet Center. The Clubhouse is very beautiful and the instructors there are world class. I have taken several groups of the members at my club down here and everyone always has a great time. During the winter and especially in early spring is... More

This is a great place for Mother's Day. They gave my wife, grandmother and mother a rose when we left to top off the day. What a wonderful buffet and view of the croquet fields. Sit outside and enjoy the breeze. Enjoy a cold drink and love you family.

Free lesson at the Croquet center was a lot of fun. I took 3 nieces, the only drawback was by youngest niece (age 10) is quite small. Croquet mallet didn't quite fit. I'd advise older children only. Drink plenty of water especially in the summer. Had a great time.

The facility is wonderful, and offers great food and a walk into another world. But where the real fun rests is within the croquet! You will laugh like crazy, get a little competitive and find yourself anxious to do it again!

Not your backyard croquet. Manicured putting green quality fields make this a game of skill and strategy. Mostly members only, bit open play on selected days. Perfect outdoor entertainment for groups of 4 or more. Nostalgia and competitive fun in a sophisticated setting. Teens and above. Food and adult drinks are available - a bit pricy.
