  • I took my father who is visiting from Colorado here to play a round of golf for his 83rd birthday. Our tee time was 17:50 and we were running late due to traffic, so we didn't get to practice and barely made it in time for our start. Anthony Maestrini, the 1st Assistant Golf Professional made our day. He told us the golf course wasn't busy and we didn't need to rush. He accommodated us in so many different ways especially for my father's birthday and gave us an extra set of balls. He made us feel so special and more like VIPs. We had just a beautiful evening and much of it had to do with our wonderful treatment of Anthony. Thank you, Anthony - it will be an evening we won't forget!
  • Didn't get to play the course but it is a beautiful area. Strolling down the cart path/ pedestrian path you can walk to the beach, the hotel, or the bridge and lagoon. At the beach you can enjoy tide pools, and is a great area for sunset pics :) Beach is somewhat secluded, because it is semi private. This is where to beach sit, if you want to drift off looking at the waves :)
