This course could be considered an established place to play some holes, since it was founded in 1964. The lay of the land, hole placement, and practice areas were created by Dick Wilson, the architect of Bahamas Princess Emerald Course. The golf course has a course rating of 72.3, and its 18 holes stretch out 6679 yards. Also be aware that there's a pro, Jef Becker, available on-site, so you'll especially enjoy this location if you want a little help perfecting your swing.
The fairways here are relatively narrow, and can be dangerously curvy. Playing next to dense woods at times and local residences at others, errant shots can be difficult to make up for. Water will come into play on a number of holes, which might add even more challenge to the round.
