A Challenging Course

The course is very hilly with wide fairways and plenty of variety amongst the holes. The views throughout the course are wonderful.

If you are an avid golfer, avoid playing the Old course. The scenery is nice, but since it is included free in the all-activities package, calling the pace of play a "snail's pace" is an insult to all snails. It's great if you are taking the family to play if you aren't regular golfers. But if you are looking to... More

While Rees Jones has made a hash of other resort courses (like the Equinox in Vt), his work here is good, perhaps because he did not do very much to the course -- he added 9, 10, and 18, and changed 1 and 2. (He may have changed 6 -- old 5 -- I don't remember, and I think his... More

My gift for my parents round of golf was "lost" and no one cared to accommodate to them or bother notifying me.

We had a nice time on a Saturday afternoon playing nine on the old course. We used a cart. We liked the views and the pace of play was good-- there was no one else in sight. We'd definitely golf here again.

Course is in excellent condition. No water hazards which is a plus. Greens are fairly fast. Folks in the clubhouse very helpful.

It was cold and very windy the day we played. The course was in great shape and the greens putted true. Be very careful with a downhill putt!

Golfers (which I am not) love it, but for the rest of us, riding or walking the course is worth it for the beauty. It's magnificently landscaped.

We played the Old Course 10/21. We loved it! We were the first out, so had the course to ourselves. There were some truly amazing views of the mountains, hotel and golf holes. We found the course to be challenging, but fair. We both played well and had a lot of fun. The staff associated with the golf course were... More
