Course is a real challenge from the tips. Don't try it on a windy day unless you are single digit H.C. Ocean views from many holes, several right on the water or cliff edge. Played here many years and have always enjoyed the experience.

Friendly and helpful staff. The course had a beautiful view of the ocean and the course was in good condition. Pace of play was good. Cost was on the high side but lower if you played after 2 PM.

While the food in the coffee shop is pretty basic, sandwiches and salads, the view is fantastic and the prices great.

Delicious breakfasts, some awesome sandwiches. Moderate prices are perfect. The terrace on a nice day can't be beat and offers a fabulous view. Great spot for a meal or beer o'clock.

Didn't expect much so we were not too disappointed. Great views though. The food was very basic and the toast not even warm.

A fantastic setting for golf. The ocean views are amazing. The course is okay but a few holes are flat out poorly designed. Weekend prices (which start on Friday) and their use of extremely high grass just past the rough (slows play) are negatives. Helpful...More
