Reviewed on

One of the better experiences I had all year because I was able to take my 6-year-old son with me.

They were totally kid friendly and even had a special set of black tees just for junior golfers, which is a bonus for such a good golf course.

You can get in trouble around the track if you're not driving it well, but if you are playing well you can shoot a good number.

The par-5 10th hole is the signature as the green is right on the beach and offers neat view of the water. Will definitely go back and play there.

Player Tip: Make sure you play the proper tees. Don't be a hero.
