The game started off on a beautiful blue sky morning. However, by the 5th hole, it started raining and didn't stop. Rivers were forming down the fairway and the course was unplayable. When we went back to the clubhouse to ask about getting a partial refund or at least a rain check, we were told no. After paying $468. Cdn for 2 green fees and 2 rentals, we were not going to take no for an answer. It took some persuasion but they finally gave us a rain check. Good thing we didn't save the game for the last day or we would have been out of luck. We were able to golf the next day, it was a little soggy, but a great course. We would highly recommend but be aware of their lack of rain check policy.

I've played this course many times over the years, and it is always beautiful, and well kept,

Its very challenging with obstacles on every hole and, thick jungle on the edge of the fairway, that keep any balls that leave the course , I've lost 18 balls over 18 holes here one day because of my horrible slice ha ha

The all inclusive is fun, every time the beer cart comes around you can grab a few beverages and tequilla shots, and snacks.

It is a very long course and has a challenge for every type of golfer, it is always a fun round of golf.

They have changed this course since our last visit and I would have to say that it has deteriorated in its quality. The greens were in a bad way with the tees needing a rest to grow some grass on. such a shame as we use to enjoy playing this tight course with some interesting wildlife on. The course has some challenging holes with good doglegs on.

disliked the fact that course now belongs to Hard Rock Hotels and more inconvenient for Palace members to golf there
