Played Jan 2017. Used passport and the course was in great winter shape. Pro shop staff very friendly and the facilities are the best in Sunset. This is the one course to splurge on if you are down for the week.

Some of the rangers at this course are the worst I have encountered in 30 years of playing golf. We had a group of five, played a threesome and a twosome. We were taking our time so we wouldn't constantly be pushing the foursome in front of us and took about 5 minutes extra at the turn because we had been waiting every shot on the front side and no one was close to keeping up with us behind our group. The ranger came by on hole 11 and told us we were half a hole behind. We explained no one was waiting on us and we were trying to be polite and not push the group in front since we had two small groups. He told us to pick up and catch them or speed up. We caught them on the next hole and then waited 5 minutes a shot for the rest of the round, having to play games on the tee boxes to keep from falling asleep. No group behind us caught up. We played the round in 3 hours 50 minutes, even waiting every shot. No reason for the rangers to be jerks when everyone there is on vacation. Totally ruined the round. Additionally, there credit card machine went down and they made one of our guys leave his credit card for the round so he could buy balls. Plenty of other courses in the area if you are looking for Southern hospitality, these guys brought their attitude down with them when they moved.
