Played golf yesterday - a friend had 4 passes at $50 each, significantly discounted from the standard greens fee. We were put on the Island Course.
It was 'cart path only' though it had not rained in at least 4 days. Not my favorite arrangement, but doable. The first 6 fairways were essentially under water. Balls were lost in unmoved grass. Forget the rough, the ball was lost.
The back nine improved substantially and some holes had no cart path - driving on the fairways, they were dry, especially where slightly elevated. #18 was soaked and essentially unplayable.
When we had arrived, the 'system was down' and we agreed to pay after our round. Good thing. I told them I would give them half of the $50, and by doing so I was being generous. The pro shop attendant - said "someone should have told you" and then added - "you could have played on one of our other courses where the conditions are better." Unbelievable. It must have been OUR fault - no one told us.
I traveled about 90 minutes for the round of golf. I've got too many courses closer to home that are excellent. Even with better conditions - the attitude of the attendant sealed the deal. Never too return.
Stayed and played on the golf package for 2 nights and 2 rounds. Came here because of it's reputation over the years.Well...the rooms are tired and outdated..ours had an updated bathroom..whoopee...it was so small that 2 people couldn't fit if you tried. The buildings were old and smelly, all 2 stories with no elevator. We at least had an executive suite with 2 rooms and a full kitchenette on the top floor which made it tolerable. As a single digit golfer, the courses were in decent shape a 7 out of 10 but still un impressive and no holes were memorable.It is considered off season when we were here...a ghost town but didn't pay the big bucks thank goodness. If I was paying full price I would have left. After visiting a lot of 5 star golf resorts, such as the Broadmoor in CO and Greenbrier in VA...this was a big let down and I don't understand how it stays in business. We went off property for dinners and found excellent place to eat. Get off property for sure... the restaurants are lame. The best thing on property was the fitness center which had all new Technogym equipment and all the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Good luck if you try it I won't be coming back.
My family lives just across the street and loves this resort! Our favorite part is lochness pool! Both slides are fun and everyone is very friendly. We also love the nature trail! Sometimes you can bring bread and feed the ducks in the pond.
The rooms are outdated. The pool was closed because of nearby lightning the whole day, yet nobody heard anything and it was a nice day. The neighbors below complained of noise (several times) even though we watched a lot of t.v. and walked around the room only. Bottom line is, for the money, you can actually find a much nicer place. Would never recommend, unless you're over 75.
We stayed for a seminar and were not impressed. The room was expensive, small and no amenities. The worst thing was the poor sound proofing. We could hear our neighbors talking and having sex all night.
