Played on beautiful day, Pro was very friendly ( sometimes private clubs are standoffish ), wonderful water views especially on 3, some blind drives ( make sure people are gone ahead of you ), small but nice greens, course knowledge on 11 and 17 ( pay attention ), fun day
He would play this course again.
I enjoyed the front 9. Greens were fair but not overly fast. When we made the turn, things got unpleasant. The 10th hole demands a draw. If you cant draw the ball, you must start your tee shot over a river bed, or risk going into a bunker at best or out of bounds right. The second hole. Is a short par 4. If you dont hit the right hand half of a narrow fairway, you have to try to draw a short iron around the trees to get to a narrow multi-tiered green. The 17th hole is a ridiculous v shaped par 4. The green is almost behind the tee. Overall, this is a private course with member for a day privileges, but they wont entice many members with this layout. Tough is one thing, gimicks are another.

I recently attended a friend's wedding at this venue. I will say that the place is absolutely beautiful, but the staff and the food left a lot to be desired.
I arrived to the wedding as the ceremony was just beginning... traffic and such... and asked the staff how to get outside without interrupting anything. They had no idea and were unwilling to help. They kept directing me to other employees to ask. Their best suggestion? Just run out the doors before the bridesmaids headed down. Thanks.
Next, the bartenders didn't know how to make anything. And the gentleman who seemed to be the head bartender was rude about not knowing. Drinks aren't cheap, so I at least expected that they would know how to work with the products they had at the bar. They didn't. I asked for something with St. Germaine. I was rudely told that someone had given them the bottle and they had no idea what to do with it since they've never tried it. I gave them a few suggestions on what I like with it, but they didn't seem to care, so I settled for a bottled beer instead. I guess their ignorance saved me a few bucks.
The food was sub-par. My prime rib was overcooked and dried out, while the food of everyone around me seemed to be less well-done. Poorly seasoned and cold. I guess I can't expect better.
This is the place that seems to disprove the rule that location is everything. It isn't.
Jason and his staff are very attentive, personable, friendly and professional! The food prepared by FRCC is always fresh, hot and completely satisfying. I've had the privalidge of working here many times as a Disc Jockey and never once have I been dissapointed with service or the food! Not to mention, my clients have always raved about FRCC and how Jason and his staff were just awesome to work with.
