This used to be a private club "back in the day". Management also has changed recently and have tried to improve the grounds. It's not bad, but the views of the bay make up for a little. Price isn't too bad...worth a try.

I got a great rate through GolfNow. I was pleasantly surprised. The staff in the pro shop and the restaurant were helpful and friendly. The course is in pretty good shape, but there are a few bare spots. Surprisingly dry considering all the rain lately.

Thank you for the review and for having been so faithful to us over the years. We have had some problems and switched superintendents during peak season, which pushed back our time table of repairs. Combine that with an extremely dry winter and no rain...More

Love the course layout, overall conditions are bad. Greens are patchy, tee boxes are weedy and bare and fairways are just okay. Played here several times over the last year hoping for a surprise improvement, but has not happened. Over priced at $48 given the...More

Hi Jt. We have been struggling getting control of the conditions with the transition between the previous superintendent to our new one, combined with a rough, dry winter. But do know we are working on it and have just lowered our rates to $35.

Hi Carole. We had a dry winter and are making reparations. The business of golf means mother nature sometimes takes her toll and work has to be done, no matter the season.

The cart paths are rough, James, and are definitely on our to-do list. But, as you know, there's always a long laundry list of things to maintain, repair or improve. Thanks for the feedback!
