Played 4 rounds with a group over the weekend, and stayed in the big house "The Retreat" on property. This is an excellent facility and wonderful staff. We never left the property and had all meals on site. The food is spectacular and service excellent without being stuffy. The course is gorgeous with perfect tees, greens and fairways. The greens are especially outstanding. 10/10. The views on some of the holes are the best I have seen this side of Bandon Dunes. The course is extremely difficult (deep deep rough frames every hole, above knee high in some places). I recommend playing one tee shorter than you would usually. It's that difficult. But a wonderful experience and highly recommended. The view in the morning on the third tee is worth the trip by itself. Great practice facility and restaurant.
