Maybe I'm missing something because after reading the reviews of this course I feel like I must have played somewhere totally different. We played this course in the middle of the dry season (March), so I understood that it would not be in perfect shape, but I did not expect to pay $150 for a course that is burned to a crisp. I must have moved my ball ten times to get out of dead patches in the fairway and burned out areas around the green. After the first hole, I just putted everything within 20 feet of the green as it's like chipping off of cement. The main thing here is that a little customer service would go a long way when the course is far from perfect and they don't even come close. Day one we arrived at the resort and wanted to hit balls a little before playing the next morning. After having a bunch of issues checking in, we arrived at the pro shop at 4:40 to find that the driving range closed at 5. Guy at the desk basically said, "it's $20 to hit balls no matter how much time you have and it's not our problem that check in took an hour and a half (front desk mistakes) because the golf course and hotel have different ownership." Hmmm, interesting perspective. Despite this we paid $40, hit ratty clubs for 10 minutes only to realize that they didn't give us tees and there are none at the range. Wow. They were super prompt when it came to getting us off the range at 5 though. Playing was the same story. They gave us both rental clubs, decent Callaway sets, but I discovered on the third tee box that the head of my driver was literally about to fall off. Had to wait until the turn to get it fixed because there is no staff anywhere except for one person in to take your money and another to give you your cart and broken clubs. Course is wonderfully designed by RTJ II, spectacular vistas and an overall very cool layout for all skill levels but I think he would be sick to see the shape it's in. From our three days at the resort it appears that the course doesn't get a ton of play (maybe at this time of year?) but that can't justify having almost no staff, no management and just leaving two guys who could care less to attend to guests. We won't be back to the course and because we like to play golf once or twice a week on vacation I guess we won't be back to the resort again either - despite the fact that they "have different ownership."
