I'd recommend dining on the patio overlooking the grandeur of the mountain scape with ideal fairways, ponds and greens just before you. Excellent food, good breadth of choices for the epicure in each of us and a good complement of local beers.

We are not golfers but our host at Country Inn Bed and Breakfast suggested we try the food. Good Choice! We had the prime rib which was cooked exceptionally well. The view from the outside patio over the golf course made this a wonderful evening.
