Course Review and Comments

In our conversations with the Director of Golf, he more or less implied that the Mountainview Course was the superior track. It would have been nice to have played both for comparisons sake. Based on our experience and treatment here, I would heartily endorse playing the courses at this facility. Just hope for warm dry weather!

Price comments Check the website. Our fee was part of a prepaid golf package.
Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments It was an interesting course to play. There certainly were enough hazards to negotiate!
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments Just prior to our arrival, the region experienced frigid temperatures for the area and a solid week of rain. The course was wet... our caddies were wearing gum boots rather than sneakers! As such, maintenance was a little below par for the money paid since the fairways and greens were unable to be cut to their normal hight. No doubt an aberration for which the Director of Golf was most apologetic. No problems.
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments As noted, we had an opportunity to talk to the Director who met us at the front door. Whether by design to explain course conditions, or by accident, it was appreciated. He joined us briefly in the lounge after our game as well. All staff were attentive and professional and our caddies excellent.
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments A unique experience... you're delivered to the course by speedboat! The clubhouse and lockers are top drawer and the whole experience was first rate except for the unfortunate condition of the course.
