Yes, you could! As you may or may not know, golf carts are not permitted. ...Only for the handicapped. The caddies are wonderful! The restaurant is very good! A must!

Walking course. Easy to walk. Caddies are reasonable price but not required. Rental clubs were top of the line. Balls not included. Need plenty. Rough are rough!
