We were staying at the Inn and played a round. The from 9 is open, green and a bit forgiving. The back 9 is in a lava field with many elevated, island type tees. It is much warmer on the back due to the lava so play early in the day if heat is a problem for you. They have cool towels at the clubhouse and cold water readily available on the course. I with they had GPS and misters on the carts as it was 115 the day we played.
