  • We had a networking social/dinner here after a long day. Lovely course and surrounding scenery. One of the employees was kind enough to let us hit a few balls on the driving range right before closing.
  • I love this course so much and all the friendly staff that work at it. Im a regular out here so i may be a bit bias! I wish they would do a locals punch card or membership options but other than that, i cant say a bad thing about fossil trace! Go there, do it!
