“Fun Interesting Layout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Everything about the course I thought was great. The condition of the greens, fairway and rough were all in phenomenal shape. The course had a lot of variety in type and shapes to their holes. They were long par 4s and also ones were you could drive the green. There were dramatic dog legs and Par 5's you could reach in two. Also, opposed to some other Mexico (or Arizona) style courses, if you did happen to shank a ball or two you had a decent chance of finding the ball. The course is pretty wide open and has generous landing areas for your driver. The course wasn't too crowded on the course the days I played (Saturday and Monday). Got through the rounds in around 3 hrs! Really happy about that so I could spend more time by the pool and beach (but still enjoying a couple rounds of golf ;).

Only minor complaint is the air is very still throughout the golf course so you get pretty hot and sweaty out there. One of the days I played was especially hot and it really takes it out of you by the 18th hole.

The pro shop is a little weak and overpriced. Make sure to bring extra golf balls with you down if you plan on playing. I think the pro shop charged $16 for 3 Titleist DTs (which are normally about $20 per dozen). Also think they wanted about $90 for a souvenir Polo Golf shirt that wasn't even name brand.

“Beautiful course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We played few clubs because we rarely had a bad lie! We received two rounds of 18 holes as part of our 7 day stay. This included the cart, all the beverages, and sandwiches and snacks. The drink/food cart was seen frequently! Stay out of the jungles!! Bring lots of balls if you tend to slice or hook.
