I have played here before and it is always a challenge. It is long and there are plenty of hazards. It is in great condition and the little restaurant has some good stuff.

Course is well maintained, layout is one where no two holes look the same. After finishing front nine head up "Lombard Street", winding cart path that takes you to top of vineyard, and starts back 9. Only drawback is course bar and patio close early.
