I noticed the pretty fall decor welcoming me to come inside, as I entered the club on a brisk fall day. Although a little early for my meeting,  Membership Director RJ Johnson was happy to meet with me in the Members-only bar. While there, I experienced the sense of community of this club as members called greetings to each other and staff addressed each golfer by name. Outside, golfers practiced at the putting green and I could see several others on carts and playing the course.  What a day to be able to play!

RJ informed me the course was built in 2001, and that the amenities include 2 outdoor pools, 1 indoor, 2 tennis courts, a fitness center and yoga room.
