  • Fun small island course. Not fancy, but interesting to play and pretty surroundings. One of the most fun things to do on the island.  more »
  • Convenient to navigate and not too challenging. Driving range. Reasonably priced. Able to get tee time on weekend  more »
  • Beautifully kept greens. Other than that a disaster. No one there at scheduled 8 am tee time. No one there are 9:30 am two days later. Girl in pro shop is clueless about what should be in a rental set...  more »

  • I think 'quirky' describes this course well. We played in August when the fairways are dry and hard. It can be hard at times to know where your next tee box is, but it's all part of the experience! We had a lot of fun. Also the staff is great.
  • Nice people, cheap rentals, and beer or wine available after a round.
  • This is a great golf course with 9 holes, light blue tees for a back 9, and can be surprisingly challenging at times. They have a driving range for those looking to hit a few balls before a round, after a round, or even just for a bit of fun. The clubhouse is open during the season and even during the off season there is usually someone close by that can come over and help out. In summation this is a wonderful golf course on a beautiful island. Can't get any better than that.
  • Fun course, great scenery. Thanks
  • On vacation there and went and played. Great coarse to get out on! Service there was outstanding and just made it very nice while on vacation! I would highly recommend playing there for any one!
