One would have certain expectations of a course with $180 green fees. I feel they fell short on service. Starting, no one at the bag drop. No directions, or easy to see signs directing us to the golf shop. Had to find it on our own and have the clerk call someone to help us with a cart and our bags.
After bags loaded, two guys standing at a counter where the carts were and no one came up to us to tell us where to go. When I approached them and asked, they said "go to the starter" and a pointed with their hand. The starter, however, was polite and accommodating.
The course was OK for a links course but was inside and around all the condos and roads. One, yes, One hole on the "beach". Aptly named for marketing I guess. A par golfer would find this course challenging, an average golfer like myself (90's) found the amount of sand protecting the holes a nuisance. I'm just whining here.
In summary, I found the course to be over-hyped and over-priced. I would consider returning but will find a far better deal on fees first.
