    From my personal experience, there is one racist in this golf course. That guy acts as if he is civil but just a racist. On the other hand, there is a real good person, Hank. If you are not white, I do not recommend you go here. It will be your worst experience except Hank.

    A must play for avid golfers. Pretty difficult place for beginners. Also, longest drives of your life here, can definitely tell the altitude let's them fly

    A good high alpine course is tough to pull off, but they are doing exactly that.
