This is a wonderful place to take the youngsters or to enjoy a quick nine when time is short. Our facilities include Fat Willy’s Clubhouse Pub & Grill, with spacious banquet rooms and a quaint little bar and grill that will surely quench your thirst or appetite before, during or after your round on the links.
