The course has the customary Lee bunkers scattered everywhere. The fairways are broad, which makes for an excellent experience with the driver. The greens provide multiple slopes on most putts. The par-5s are only long from the Gold tees, and the length of the par-3s is within reason. This is a semi-private golf course. Only soft spikes are allowed.

This is a classic older course. There is an endless supply of elevation changes. Level lies are a rarity. The greens are tiny for a resort course, so you are likely to miss a number of them, and your short game will be tested. The fairways are uncomfortably narrow, and there is water everywhere. It's an excellent test. This is a semi-private resort golf course. Metal spikes are tolerated, but not encouraged. Check the website for the Green fees, they vary from month to month.
