This one is tucked away on the sorta/kinda heel of the island, and it is set so far back from the main road that once you are on the golf course, ALL man-made noises ceases to exist. It truly is a great total golf experience.

Staff was super-friendly. Course was in excellent shape. I played from the whites and it was challenging enough for me. Most fairways are fairly wide, but the greens are smallish and well-protected, so you need to hit good shots from tee to green to score here.

And, proving that golf is not so much about "where" you play, but "who" you play with, the pro shop/starter hooked me up with two of the nicest gentlemen (Dave and Gary) I've met in a long, long time. I'm playing every day this week while here on vacation, and I'll be hard-pressed to have a more friendly and enjoyable round of golf.

Bottom line: play this track; you will not be disappointed!

I had heard about this course and was excited about the chance to play. I enjoyed the round immensely.

First, the staff could not have been more friendly. They were delightful. Second, the golf course gave me all that I could handle.

I particularly liked the look from the tee boxes on most of the holes. It was pleasing to the eye and seemed like there was plenty of room to drive the golf ball. Now, don't mistake that with meaning that this course is easy, because it is not.

It played long for me and I found myself hitting longer irons into the greens than I had hoped. But the challenge was great and the day was spectacular. If you need to make par on the par-4 18th hole to shoot a good score, good luck. It's a beast.

Totally recommend this place.


Player Tip: To me, the course played longer than expected. Make sure you take a moment and make sure you play the proper tees.

Pretty long and not easy as a result. This and it's sister course (Cupp) are both a very good challenge.

I have played a few times and it has not been too busy which is nice


Player Tip: One of the two course (Hills or Cupp) are designated as the members course each day up until noon so you should check if playing in the morning
