“Golf mecca.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Schedule in advance if golf is your headliner on vacation.
Breakfast, lunch or dinner on site is upscale, and you may need
reservations. A little pricey but worth it.

“A must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

There are so many trails to choose from and the views are amazing. We hiked down to the beach at flat rock and it was so worth the effort. Easy parking and not that crowded.
