  • Played the Irish Course on May 7th, 2017. Temperature was 47 degrees, along with 20 mph wind gusts. Took my son & friends along. The course is a challenge, as it really makes you think. The holes are really cool and you will be tired by the end of your round from the terrain. Would play again, no doubt.
  • Played the Irish course. Was an experience. Most expensive course I've ever played. Not sure I would do it again as cost is somewhat prohibitive. But definitely worth it for the one time experience.
  • Stopped by for lunch on the verandah at the clubhouse. Always a great experience
  • The course is a unique challenge each time I play. Love both courses, one of the best sets of enjoyable walkable courses anywhere. The walk alone is awe inspiring.
  • The hype is real. This course is fantastic. Hard. Amazing views, unbeatable service and top-notch clubhouse.
