At $116 for 2 of us with a cart, very reasonable price to pay to play this beautiful course -- great views of Sleeping Giant along the ocean front and wide open spaces. But if you are reading this, you are likely not a local...More

For a "muni" this was a great course! It was not only beautiful & in great shape, but was quite affordable. Several of the holes ran just above the beach - great photo ops.

A reasonably good golf course. First two holes parallel the ocean. # 17 is framed by the water. Beautiful pink lilies in pond on front. Greens in great shape. The golf is stunning at $48.00. Easily a $150 type course. Obviously, club house and other...More

Just wear tennis shoes. This is a public golf course therefore does not have normal golf attire rules. People wear t-shirts and cargo shorts, etc. We do LOVE the course however.
