Beautiful homes but a long ride from any place like a city or the airport. No shopping, even grocery stores for miles.

Bring an extra few golf balls. There are many forced carries over wetlands, with some off of downhill, tight lies. If you are off the fairway, this course will eat your lunch. They have cleaned up several areas, seemingly due to competition from their excellent...More
