The greens fees are free, true, but you do have to have a mandatory cart/caddy. I bought golf balls and spent $16 for six balls - crazy! I had my own shoes, but rented clubs at $40. So all in all the day cost me...More

Dear Rina, Thank you for playing our course. Caddie is mandatory but not the cart. Thank you for your feedback. Scott

Caddies are excellent, pace was good (3 hours) course is challenging and fairly long (6588 Yds). No issues playing any time of the day. Watch out for the wind!

Good course although a bit gnarly. Cost was "included" but after you rent clubs, cart, and tip the caddy it's close to $100.

The course is ok and will be getting a face lift shortly. The greens need work but it didn't stop us from having fun and playing more than once. Caddies are wonderful.

Course was very good , Tony was very helpful and I made some delicious shots with his help. Always had my next club ready to go and water at the ready to ensure I was hydrated.

Yes they are an older titliest model but still in good condition. You do have to hire a caddy though and the total come to 60 dollars. It's an enjoyable course to play. Hope this helps Brian
