Windy weather

Fantastic conditions and great value

I was surprised at the quality of the greens considering the low cost of my round. The layout is straightforward, wide-open in most places, and a very easy walk. The challenge comes on the back side with a strong prevailing wind on 14, 15 and 18 adding up to two-club lengths to your iron shots. If you don't mind the occasional airplane taking off and the police working on the defensive driving (just off the 13th hole), you will not find a better value on the peninsula.

Best greens in area

Great value. And the greens are always in great condition. Very friendly staff and nice breakfast and lunch in the restaurant without breaking the bank on cost. Not the most beautiful layout, but the course is very well kept.

Great course for the price

This is a great course for the money. Not too challenging with wide open fairways. This is a long but easy course to walk but made the pace of play pretty slow. There was a foursome walking ahead of me and backed things up, especially for a Wednesday morning. I love to try and play this course as much as possible because the conditions are always kept great.
