Right from the drive in, your mouth is hanging open, ok not a good visual, but WOW. Long windy road through some lovely villas and homes. After parking you are shuttled up to the Club House and it is magnificent. Set on what I presume is the highest piece of the property looking down over the golf course, it is very impressive. There is a lovely balcony where they served wine and appetizers. The clubhouse is surrounded by 2 pools (one an infinity pool), a fire pit and their dining room and grill restaurant.

|The Golf club did a great job of maintaining the natural beauty of the course, while adding in beautiful pathways.|
The 18th hole and the beautiful clubhouse. The restaurants are at the back looking out over the course. Definitely picturing have a glass of wine here in the summer.
Thank you to Chuck, Laurie and Sherry for a great experience. Definitely looking forward to another game of golf and at the very least a meal on their beautiful balcony.
