From the moment you open the trunk to off load your clubs...friendly staff attend to all your needs. The restaurant serves creative/tasty dishes...and are ready to modify to individual tastes. We only played holes 19-27...the third nine. It was beautiful...fairways were plush, greens rolled true, but we're on the slow side.....and the layout while open, was challenging. You get big...

After playing the Ritz Carlton for the past two years and thinking there was no other course quite as enjoyable overall. I have now found a tremendous rival that gives you everything you could ask for. Played the tips on 19-27/1-9. Incredible views and a true golfers challenge as the winds were gusting 10-20mph. The fact that we paid $55... More

The greens at UP are the best I have ever played in North America. The overall condition of the turf is amazing, nary a bad section anywhere even alongside the cart paths where you normally see ruts and bare earth. Very scenic course, great par 3s. Houses do not really be in play as the overall fit with course and... More

Took my son here for a mid-week round of golf. The location was convenient to our downtown hotel. The bag drop guys were great. But this is a country club and there is a dress code so tuck in your collared shirt! We had a quick meal before tee time and the service and food were great. They gave us... More

$84 was a fair afternoon rate for this private course, which has some public play. There are 3 sets of 9 holes. We played the first 2. Fairways were fairly narrow on both 9's (Apparently the 3rd 9 is wider). Course conditions were average for a private club. Greens were very slow. The round took almost 5 hours.

Outstanding brunch. What a selective venue to choose from.The station omlet was fresh and light. The blintzes were the hit of the parade. A delightful brunch with excellent food and good company.

If the weather permits, sit on their covered lanai to truly enjoy the view and ambience. This time we went for Sunday brunch, and it was truly worth every penny! Everyone in our group went home satisfied and happy!

Beautiful golf course in the middle of the city! Easily accesible, close to highways and airport, this is a golf gem. Played there several times this winter. The course is very well maintained.

Great image and style....beautiful clubhouse and restaurant. Problem is holes are too similar Few doglegs, water hazards or interesting traps. Design is a yawn a shame on such a well kept course. Priced higher than most not worth it.
