A fun 18-hole treasure. Quaint, well established (1957), short course with great views. The biggest challenge on the course is watching your back, especially if the course is crowded. A driving range, grill, pro shop, and on-course beverage cart available. Impeccable service from arrival to finish. Juniors and seniors will enjoy this course. Be prepared to ogle the mountains and "love the one you're with" on a warm, sunny day because it'll be slow progress.

“Nice course”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Executive course, in residental area. Affordable year round.
Excellent course upkeep. Very friendly staff in Pro-shop. Clean carts and clean course. Great for beginners or anyone wanting to play a nice quiet game without being over priced.

“Lovely Property”
Reviewed May 20, 2004

Don't let the 50's style architecture scare you. This is a beautiful property with lovely grounds. The rooms are very spacious, with fluffy pillow top beds, feather pillows and stylish comforters and dust ruffles. The main restaurant has a large outdoor patio where we enjoyed delicious food. There is a large resort style swimming pool, as well as a lap pool. The property sits in the shadow of a large mountain (hence the name). At night, tiki torches add to the ambiance. We stayed here one night when we came to town to visit a college my son was thinking about attending. We would definitely come back and would love to stay there again.
