I live here and it is a great place to retire. We have two great Robert Trent Jones Golf Courses and a huge lake for fishing or boating. We have met so many wonderful friends.

Had a wonderful time at course. Only bad thing is I don’t know think paths are clearly marked nor distances. Weaves in and out of houses and very hard d to know where to go. Course in great shape and challenging.

I would suggest that Dillon call the Pro Shop at 919-499-5611. There are different rates for different days, so I hesitate to answer. Ask for either Ollie or Dean and they will be more than happy to help him.
