Fantastic couple of rounds here, with some really memorable holes by the ocean on the back nine, and the 4th through the sand dunes in particular. Clubhouse veranda has excellent views of 10th and service very good.

This golf course offers so many great experiences. Not only is the ocean view spectacular but also the layout offers challenges and made our day one of those you just remember. The supporting services are very good and we enjoyed the day very much.

Course was in good condition, some challenging holes but a couple of basic ones. Very nice mix of tree lined front nine and beach/links back nine. 4 hours 40 for a normal round. Clubhouse more expensive than others in the area but very good views...More
