This oceanfront newcomer with a rash of perfect scores is "stunning, as if you were airlifted to heaven." Plantation-style buildings have perfect-scoring suites where ceiling fans, light colors, and subtle patterns create a country feel. The restaurant changes its menu daily"you'll want to stay all day and just order another bottle of wine" on the outdoor terrace. Perfect-scoring staff include caddies with "knowledge of many topics, not just golf." On the challenging course (one of the perfect-scoring activities), "we played four times and only once came close to another group."
