  georgekkennedy - 5/23/15
unrivalled quality - great caddies
tough at times off the next to back tees
most expensive golf course ive ever played
  DavidBise - 5/4/15
FOR A GOLFER,THIS WOULD BE ONE OF THE BEST COURSES EVER TO PLAY. EXPENSIVE, BUT WORTH THE COST.
  philip drower - 3/30/14
The Best Resort course in the US. The Ocean course when the wind is down is getable, however it is tough, when the wind blows have fun. The Course offers the best views anywhere in the US and a true links style course as you'll get this side of the Pond!
  dkfishnh - 2/13/14
Best combination of course conditioning & scenery of any course I've played on and they've got 4 courses like that. Ocean, Osprey, & Cougar are about equal with Ocean coming out ahead with the Ocean views & multi-million dollar homes. Turtle Point had a little less scenery.
  Richierich20 - 1/28/14
pretty simple! not challeging!
  CraigFischer - 8/6/13
Great driving range; free balls and tees. Putting green good layout.

Beautiful course; well manicured. People at the course are all super-friendly and helpful. Beverage cart hit us 5 times in 18 holes - very good! Additionally, a marshal came with water if we needed.

It would rate 5 stars if the greens fee were a little lower - in season was $180 USD. That's pretty steep!
  TEnglehart - 5/12/13
One of the best courses in the US, especially The Ocean course. A lot of fun and very challenging. Also found Osprey to be a beautiful course. Cougar is good and probably a little easier than some of the others. Heard Turtle Point was in rough shape (greens) so changed to Cougar Point instead.
  AGA Fan - 9/16/12
