Just visited The Prairie Club with three buddies for three nights/four days of golf. The golf was outstanding. Certainly top five of my golf experiences. I enjoyed both courses. Even though the golf was outstanding it wasn't what I would tout the most about The Prairie Club, that would be the food! The chef is fabulous! Being that the guests are essentially captive, the food had better be good or no one would come back. Well, it's some of the best food you'll ever eat. The accomodations are top notch as well. We couldn't have been more comfortable than in our four room cabin. Each of us had our own king room with bath. A common area with bar, tv, and furnishings centered the cabin. At the cabin we spent most of our time together on the deck though. If you're visiting for the first time there are some things you need to know. First, we weren't welcomed by a bellman or concierge but by cart boys, maybe fitting for a golf club but not a high end destination. They were not properly trained to give us the run down on what to do or how things worked. Our cabin wasn't ready so we changed in the locker room for golf and the boys stowed our bags. They did deliver them to our room for us. Each day one of the two courses is reserved for the members. So if you want to play 36 it's on the same course. That wasn't an issue for us but just one thing we didn't realize. We weren't exactly clear on the gratuity set up in the bar and restaraunt. We were adding tips or leaving cash and then thought later they were adding 18% on the checks. So check that out. The customer service level in the lodge is outstanding. Everyone we dealt with was so pleasant and helpful. Kim has only worked there as a server a short time but handled us like a seasoned pro. Even though the temps when we were there were 100+ it was a bearable dry heat. A very nice gentleman works very hard stocking the coolers located on the two courses with ice and complimentary bottled water. There is a "halfway" house on each course with food and beverages. I give The Prairie Club a four of five rating a recommend it.
