The course can be a challenge with a lot of water along the way. Another challenge can also be finding the next hole. The signage is almost non-existent and they don't have a "map" of the whole course. We were in a group and they...More

We held our awards dinner at the course and it was beautiful. The food was awesome and the staff was very good. Having cocktails outdoors and the dining room was very nice. The guys that golfed there said it was a great course.

Yes they do. The food is very good. The guys I was with had the burger special, but I couldn't resist the seafood, being in FL and all. The hotel is my favorite meeting site, and I hope to be back there this year.
