Amazing hotel. Staff extremely professional and polite. Could not ask for a better time there. Only downside was the AC was not working on our rooms. Apparently they are putting in a new AC unit in the hotel so that explains it.

We stayed in a room that overlooked the 17th tee box and fairway. It was a lovely experience. The bar on the 4th floor needs to adjust their service. It was very slow and unattentive.
