Crosswinds Golf Course
We played the 9-hole, executive section of this course; there is a more difficult 18-hole section which the pro-shop suggested was for more experienced golfers (duffers like me can not harbor much pride).
$42 for cart and 18-hole and $20 for cart for executive 9-holes. If you take a cart, make sure you stay on the cart path because they are not very forgiving about people who ruin their grass.
The 9-hole section plays from 1000 to 2800 yards depending on tee choice. The 18-hole course plays from 5500 to 6500 yards.
On the executive course, most of the holes are pretty easy as long as you don't try to overpower the shot. Placement is important especially on the approach shot because the undulating greens can eat up three putts if you don't end up within 15 feet of the hole.
The hazards were minimal (unlike the 18-hole championship course) and water came into play for only three holes. The 9th hole is a bit tricky because a bad approach shot can end up with your ball rolling off the green and into the pond.
The practice area has putting green, chipping area and driving section. Prices range up from $10 a bucket.
The pro shop is a good place to stop and yak about the course before beginning. The locals normally will tell you how to approach each hole if you give them a chance.
The snack bar and grill serves beverages and finger foods at reasonable prices.
