This golf course has a secluded setting, making it the perfect little day activity for some fun. There is a large log cabin-styled clubhouse with a pro shop inside, so if you forgot something, they got it! They have an 18 hole course with each hole being different and exciting. Great activity for friends and family, yet also still great if you want some alone time.
