Prices for golf accessories are prohibitively expensive in the Pro Shop. For example, I went to get a box of 12 Titleist soft golf balls and the price was $44. Anywhere else this same box of golf balls cost $34.95. The explanation that was given...More

You neglected to mention you wanted to use points which are free to you. The golf balls would have only cost you the sales tax but they cost the business the wholesale price plus shipping. I don’t know why you would complain about free merchandise.

Very nice course. It was a great value. The people there were very nice. For early April, I thought that the course was a good shape. We paid $57 for 18 holes and cart.

I enjoyed my round here. It was slow due to the crowd. Some basic holes, some tricky holes. Greens were nice, fairways were plush. For $50 it was a steal. We'll be back on our next trip.
