Expected a lot more from this pricey hotel GC. Poor tee blocks no view of the beach araes. Decents greens and layout just not what I expected along the coast.

I didn't play here but the course was in great condition. It's a links type course with challenges on every hole. Our room overlooking some of the course.

We played this in perfect weather with sun in the mid-60's, and a mild breeze! We were 16 lads, and the course, the staff, and the caddies were terrific and very welcoming. Thanks to all - very enjoyable!
