This golf course has great views and great holes. Not an easy one, especially first time you play it. You need to know where to hit. Not always a good idea to use a driver.

I agree with Stuart. Yes, you can visit the Pro Shop without playing golf. The entire facility is very nice with a great setting and nice ocean views from the course and the pro shop and restaurant.
