Just got back and have not stopped thinking about it. Rather then repeat what has been said above all of which I agree with I will pick out some other items. We were eight golfers many who had played great courses Pebble, St Andrews, Green Monkey, Bally Bunion etc., we all agreed this was the best course we ever played. At the moment the course has very litle play and is in pristine condition. the greens were playing 12+. We met the one of he principles and his group on the 12 Tee. Everyone introduced themselves, talked about the course and then in a very UnTrump like gesture insisted as guests we play through. Stanley is a real gentleman.
Dinner was great. The dinning room is equiped with very comfortable chairs that you can sit in for a long dinner and be comfortable.
One of the ways I look to see how good a resort may be before arriving is looking at the quality of the pool furiniture. RI does not dissapoint; it is teak with very nice cushions, the pool is quite nice with some natural stones built into the side walls.
You want to get to this place before word gets out.
For a change there is a nice ocean front restaurant near by at the Villa Montania Hotel about a 10 minute drive.
