Staff very friendly. Course well manicured and challenging. Bring a whole f’ing bag of balls. A beach towel would be good .....there is a lot of sand. I would definitely play if you have a chance.

I love golf and I love to play on beautiful courses. This Nicklaus course sure fits that bill. I would say it is an above average challenge of Golf. Amy opinion is that it is a must play in the PCB area.

This course is on the property with the Marriott Vacation club and Sheraton vacation club. Somewhat reasonable green fees ($59.00) which includes practice balls & cart. Well laid out & in good conditon.

This is a marshy course through homes and is not an easy layout. We enjoyed ourselves. The club house was under construction at the time so getting service was tricky. Hopefully this has been resolved.

Interesting golf course that can't make up its mind if it's a dune course, a water course or just a very challenging course. It's very difficult to play on a windy day.

By far the nicest course in the area. If you have not played at Bay Point Nicholas or the Meadows you have cheated yourself. Most friendly staff and 2 of the nicest courses within 100 miles.
