We wanted to see this prestigious golf club and decided to have some food. This is worth a trip even if you don't golf. The bar on the top floor gives you a wonderful view out to the lake.

Didn’t come to golf, just to explore. The grounds are absolutely beautiful & well maintained. The pro shop, restaurant & pub are very warm and inviting.
