Staff is great. Happy to help with any questions and concerns. The course was in great shape. The patio offers a great view for Apres golf drinks. Great beef dip as well.

We enjoyed our round of golf and afterwards in their Satellite Bar & Grill restaurant choose from their 3 offerings, the chicken curry and rib dishes. Both items were fine and a good deal overall.
