“Nice Little Course”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Fun golf course with unforgiving roughs. Very inexpensive even with a cart. A stay at the Benbow Inn, dinner on the terrace, and a round of golf on Father's Day--perfect!

“Fun, but take extra balls”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

It was fun, the carts are old, and the rough is really rough, we lost a l;ot of balls in the grass that was just too long. Fairways were in good shape, and sometimes challenging between the local houses. Practice range was no worth bothering with, its a big net and you can't use woods in there.

“Fun times!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

It's only 9 holes but it is challenging and beautiful! If you stay at the hotel you get great discounted rates and they sometimes have facebook and foursquare promotions. Awesome!

“Summer course”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

Small course, only 9 holes but beautiful in the summertime. It's where I go in the summer months to get away from the cool coast and get some rays. Reasonably priced and well upkept.
