Loved the view of the falls from below the Fairmont... Easy walk to get there too, good or this with limited mobility

“The locals helped make it more fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We were fortunate to play with two guys who play BS often, so we got a 'heads up' on lots of the trouble spots on the course....but who could pay attention to their game when the scenery was so breath taking? The course was in fabulous shape. Greens were fast. Fairways beautiful. I agree with the other reviewer about the animal prints in the sand traps and on some of the greens, but HEY, this isnt a tournament. This is vacation and beautiful. It is expensive, but just build it into your travel budget. It is worth it!

“Course is in great shape and the scenery is outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Almost every hole has a great view. There is wildlife to see along the course. The course is well maintained and challenging but not impossible.
The mosquitoes are on the course too so wear repellant.
