Everyone has to start as a novice and you don't feel like an idiot when you smash the mallet and your ball goes bounding off course. Games later, months later -- you begin to get your groove. Every Saturday is a free clinic for those who want to try. I got hooked and became a member, but you don't have... More

We were there for a fundraiser. The setting is pretty and the food was good. They had friendly and professional coaches to teach people how to play and provide advice on strategy and shots. It was fun for all ages!

We enjoyed the free croquet lessons on a Saturday morning. Our instructor, Bob, was very knowledgable about the game of croquet and made learning the game fun. We enjoyed the clubhouse afterwards for a glass of wine and cocktails. The clubhouse and grounds were well maintained and the ambiance was wonderful. Great venue to learn the game and spend a...

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).

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.
