The service was excellent and so was the food and wine. Kids menu could have been better. Great we had the room as we (and they) didn't have to worry about all the children (travelling with 3 families) getting excited/making noise. The hotel was pretty fab too.

I quickly realized that I was going to get a lot of "bang for my buck". I truly do not believe I would have received this level of service at any other venue in the area....

Thank you for being our guest during a very special time of year with the Honda Classic. Its amazing to be able to play the exact same course as the Pro's, and The Champ surely tests your golf skills.
