Clubhouse staff was great and the facility is very nice, but I walk golf courses and struggle with courses that are built for golf carts. There are many courses on the RTJ Trail; this was one and done for me because it is not walkable.

We visited these courses as part of a package on the Robert Trent golf trail. Wonderful golf, staff very friendly and helpful, prices moderate although we hit there in a cold spell. Highly recommend the golf experience.

We didn’t eat here but played in a sectional tennis tournament here. The place is immaculate and beautiful. Golf course looked fabulous. Tennis clay courts were very well maintained. Staff was friendly. Please note they have a major update of construction going on.
