“Links Style Design - moderate length”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Have played this course on several occasions. Not much trouble, some water but minimal bunkers. Designed without a home community. Kind of course you can score on and boost your golf ego.

“Great Links Course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

This is a true links course. There are hardly any trees and it gets very windy. There aren't a lot of water hazards, but you'd be surprised how many balls you can lose in the bushy rough on this course. It's a lot of fun, and very well kept for the price.

“Fun Links Course for the $$$”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

Have had a great time both times I have played this course. Very affordable, challenging (target golf course) but also forgiving on most holes.

“Castle bay Country Club Restaurant-The Kings Table”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

This is a very reasonable priced restaurant and perfect for a ladies lunch. I went with a group
and every person at the table loved their selection. To me it was the best 6.00 hamburger
you could hope with a staff that served with perfection. Several of the ladies said the crab cakes were their favorite for miles around and came regularly just to get them. The hamburger comes with choice of fries or onion rings"imagine a gourmet burger and fries for that price" Another fav was the spicey tuna roll. It seemed a great chat time for the men as well after a game of golf.
There is a decent bar menu with prices from 2.50 - 4.00 for a decent assortment of beer and mixed drinks around 6.00. The real deal here is the lunch menu and the prices for dinner
are pricey compared to lunch. For dinner the price would be comparable to Olive Garden with a few extra dollars. No need to get dressed in anything better than work casual or nice pair of jeans. we all really enjoyed this restaurant and for a large group to have no complaints is remarkable. I would for sure be happy to visit this cheerful place again with its very clean
dining area and drive through the maicured lawns prior to arrival. Just a heads up it is easy to miss first time and do plan on going through a neighborhood setting before you see the restaurant-you may also want to leave a few minutes early if you are meeting some friends so you dont miss the restaurant. Parking is good and plenty of space. Feel free to bring a well behaved child but it is not a loud restaurant -it is a calm atmosphere for adults in conversation
or enjoying the quick service after a round of golf. I would think it would be the perfect solution for a business lunch in this area and many miles away for a better choice.

“Great course. Beautiful setting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2009

Designed as a Scottish links course. Open yet rolling terrain. Lovely neighborhood. Would love to live there.
